Harold Varner III wins LIV Golf Washington DC in upset…’$5.4bn in prize money’

Harold Varner III (USA) has recorded his first victory on the LIV Golf Tour.

Varner III carded five birdies and one bogey in the final round of the LIVGolf Washington DC ($25 million) at the par-72 Trump National Golf Club in Washington, DC, USA, on 29 September.

His final total of 12-under-par 204 gave him a one-stroke victory over runner-up Brandon Grace (South Africa). Varner, who has been with LIVGolf since last year’s Boston event, won in just his 11th start.

He takes home $4 million for his victory. In addition, Varner III’s Rangers finished third in the team competition, earning $125,000, a quarter of the $500,000. In total, the team harvested $4.125 million. That’s about $5,478,000 in Korean won.스포츠토토

Since turning pro in 2012, Barrard III has not won on the PGA Tour. However, he did reach the top of the PIF Saudi International before joining LIV Golf in 2022. He faced off against Bubba Watson (USA) and made a sensational 28-metre putt to seal the win.

Varner III, whose best result on LIVGolf last year was a seventh place finish in Bangkok, recently finished ninth in Singapore before finishing fourth in Tulsa. Riding high on his momentum, he came out on top in Washington DC.

After one of his main rivals, Mito Pereira (Chile), stumbled with back-to-back bogeys in rounds one and two, Varner III traded birdies for bogeys on the third and fourth holes before birdieing the par-five seventh to get into the hunt.

As Grace pulled away with birdies at the first, third (par-5), fifth (par-4) and ninth (par-4), Varner III was in fine form with birdies at the seventh (par-5), 11th (par-4) and 15th (par-3).

Grace birdied the last two holes (par-4) to finish the round tied for the lead. Varner III was playing the final 18th (par 5). Varner III had an eagle chance. His eagle putt was slightly off, but a birdie was enough to win the tournament.

Grace finished second and Pereira, who was looking for his first LIVGolf victory, was third. Pereira’s Team Torque finished first in the team competition, while Grace’s Team Stinger finished second.
