Talor Gooch Wins LIV Golf Individual Title
Taylor Gooch carded an 8-under 62 on Sunday at LIV Golf Jeddah to capture the season-long individual title.
This is the first full-season title that Gooch has won on LIV, and he takes home an $18 million bonus.
“It’s awesome. From January 1st until now, that’s what we’ve been working for. So to get here and be the champion, man, I’m proud. I’m honored. And I’m excited,” said Gooch after the round.
Meanwhile, Brooks Koepka defended his LIV Golf Jeddah title, winning in a playoff.
Koepka forced the playoff with a birdie at the par-5 18th to close out his 2-under 68 in the final round, leaving him tied with Gooch at 14 under for the tournament.
He then birdied the 18th twice in the playoff.
Seeds for next week’s season-ending Team Championship in Miami were also finalized, with 4Aces GC, Crushers GC, Torque GC and RangeGoats GC securing byes for Friday’s Quarterfinals.
