The team competition further spices up the event, with the top three teams splitting the $5 million team purse. The winning team will get a share of $3 million. The runner-up team will get $1.5 million to take home, and the third team will get $50,000.

This distribution model not only highlights the lucrative nature of the LIV Golf events but also emphasizes the league’s commitment to providing substantial financial incentives to its players. The winner of any LIV Golf tournament gets no Official World Golf Ranking points, but what they get are the points that come in handy to count towards the end for season-long bonuses and the team championship.

Last year Brooks Koepka won the Jeddah event for the second time in a row and will be hoping to make it a hattrick of wins at this year’s event.

Last year Koepka topped Peter Uihlein on the third hole of a playoff in 2022 and then defeated Talor Gooch on the second playoff hole last year to win at Jeddah. He will be eyeing yet another win but it will be far from easy. Bryson DeChambeau, Talor Gooch, Patrick Reed, Peter Uihlein, Carlos Ortiz, Graeme McDowell, and Abraham Ancer will also be vying for the big victor’s payout.

Anthony Kim will be making his return to the course having won three PGA Tour events during his short career, the last coming in 2010.

So far this season, Joaquin Niemann and Dustin Johnson have won the first two individual titles of the third LIV Golf season. Niemann won the season-opening event in the dark in Mayakoba. He defeated Sergio Garcia on the fourth playoff hole. Dustin Johnson captured the second LIV event of the season, at Las Vegas Country Club. Both players will once again pose a challenge in Jeddah.
