LIV Golf Standings, Sep 19: Dustin Johnson Maintains Huge Lead

2022 SEASON INDIVIDUAL CHAMPION: UPDATED STANDINGS THROUGH CHICAGO

WRITTEN BY LIV GOLF STAFF

SEPTEMBER 19, 2022

The inaugural 2022 LIV Golf Invitational Series includes a season-long points race to crown the Individual Champion. Each of the seven regular-season events will award points based on individual leaderboard results. The top three players in ranking points will receive prize bonuses from the $30 million purse, with the Individual Champion receiving the top bonus of $18 million.

HOW IT WORKS

Here is the individual points system for each regular-season event. First place is worth 40 points, and only the top 24 players – half of the 48-man field – will receive points. Those who finish 25th or below will not be eligible for points in that tournament.

1st – 40 points

7th – 13 points

13th – 6 points

19th – 2 points

2nd – 30 points

8th – 12 points

14th – 5 points

20th – 2 points

3rd – 24 points

9th – 11 points

15th – 4 points

21st – 1 point

4th – 18 points

10th – 10 points

16th – 3 points

22nd – 1 point

5th – 16 points

11th – 8 points

17th – 3 points

23rd – 1 point

6th – 14 points

12th – 7 points

18th – 2 points

24th – 1 point

IN CASE OF TIES

Unlike for prize money purposes, there are no ties for individual points.

1. Ties per event are decided by one of the following, in the order they appear:

  • Final round score

  • Better back-9 (as per the card rather than the player’s finishing 9 holes) iii. Last 6 holes

  • Last 3 holes

  • Final hole

  • Last 36 holes

2. Total Number of Points Ties for rankings are decided by one of the following, in the order they appear:

  • Best finish in an event

  • 2nd best finish in an event

  • 3rd best finish in an event

  • And so on (4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th best finish)

INDIVIDUAL SEASON BONUS PURSE

Only the top three finishers at the end of the seven-event regular season will receive bonuses from the $30 million purse.
