LIV Golf vs PGA Tour Combined 2024 Money List

LIV Golf consistently offers the biggest prize money in golf, but it’s PGA Tour stars who dominate the top of the combined money list so far this seaso

There have been some high earners from both PGA Tour players and LIV golfers this season

With LIV Golf now deep into its third season and with the PGA Tour having significantly increased its prize money in an attempt to match its big-money rival, tournaments offering multi-million dollar prize money to their best-performing players are now commonplace.

But how do the top earners on the PGA Tour compare to those on LIV Golf so far in 2024?

The top 20 of highest earners across both circuits this season sees eight from the PGA Tour and 12 from LIV Golf, and it is players from the more established outfit that largely dominate the higher reaches of the table.

PGA Tour player Scottie Scheffler’s season has been one for the ages. Victory over Tom Kim in a playoff at the Travelers Championship gave the American his sixth win this season, while arguably his only performance that could be deemed a failure so far being a T41 at the US Open.

What’s more, Scheffler has tended to save his best form for the most lucrative events. Scheffler has claimed wins at four of the PGA Tour’s signature events this season, as well as its flagship tournament, The Players Championship, and first Major of the year, The Masters, which have helped him stand way out in front of his nearest rival on the combined money list at $27,696.858.

Scottie Scheffler’s win at the Travelers Championship was his sixth of the season

Directly beneath him is another PGA Tour player, Xander Schauffele, whose most significant payday so far this year came with $3.3m for his win at the PGA Championship. Schauffele has also been admirably consistent throughout this season, and, like Scheffler, has yet to miss a cut. Despite that, he has less than half of Scheffler’s earnings at $12,636,360.

In third place is the highest-earning LIV golfer of the season so far, Chilean Joaquin Niemann. The Torque GC player won $4m for each of his two wins, at Mayakoba and Jeddah, while he has five other top 10 finishes, helping him to earnings of $12,281,848 for the season so far.
