The plan was both creative and audacious at the same time. By partnering with the developmental MENA Tour, already approved by the Official World Golf Ranking, LIV Golf seemed to have identified a credible path to have its Invitational Series events finally receive the World Ranking status the upstart Saudi-backed circuit so longingly craved. And yet did LIV officials really expect the OWGR to sign off on it with just 24 hours’ notice when ordinary it takes one to two years to approve OWGR applications? And did we mention that the MENA Tour had been essentially defunct for nearly two years?

Long story short, players competing in this week’s LIV Golf Invitational Bangkok, still didn’t earn World Ranking points for their performances. But, just as they have in the five previous events on LIV’s inaugural 2022 schedule, they earned some very large prize money payouts.

Eugenio Lopez-Chacarra, Sunday’s three-shot winner of the 54-hole individual competition, earned $4 million for his victory from an overall purse of $20 million. The 22-year-old Spaniard, an All-American at Oklahoma State who gave up his senior season to turn pro this summer and sign with LIV, shot a final-round 69 to cruise to the title after starting the day at Stonehill Golf Club with a five-shot edge.

Along with the individual event, there is a team competition that paid out $5 million overall. The Fireballs (Sergio Garcia, Abraham Ancer, Carlos Ortiz and Lopez-Chacarra) ended the 4 Aces run of four straight team wins, shooting a collective 45 under.

Here are the prize money payouts for the entire field at Stonehill.
