After a month off, LIV Golf started the second half of its schedule in Houston, with the event at the Golf Club of Houston being the eighth of 14 events on the league’s schedule. The last event was in early May in Singapore, but 16 players from the circuit competed in the PGA Championship, including Bryson DeChambeau, who came oh so close to Xander Schauffele late Sunday in Kentucky.

Carlos Ortiz shot 15 under par for the week to take home the individual title. He topped Adrian Meronk by a shot to earn the usual $4 million winner's share of the $20 million overall purse. Meronk took home $2.25 million.

Patrick Reed and David Puig tied for third place, another shot back. Sergio Garcia tied for fifth.

The Cleeks won the team championship and will split $3 million. Martin Kaymer is the captain of that squad with Meronk, Richard Bland and Kalle Samooja. Brooks Koepka's Smacsh and Garcia's Fireballs teams tied for second place.

The U.S. Open is next week, where several LIV players will compete. The league will be back in action the following week in Nashville.

Here is the breakdown of what each player earned this week in Texas.
