Charl Schwartzel, former Masters champion, made history in Golf when taking the bigger bag at the inaugural Saud League. The South African pocketed $4.75 million.

Schwartzel held onto a one-shot lead at the first LIV Golf event, just outside London. Thus, he secured the $4 million prize for his individual victory, and another $750,000 as part of the $3 million purse earned by his Stinger team. of four members, who lead the table.

Schwartzel made more money in prizes for winning this contest of three days -54 holes- that due to his golfing activity in the last four years combined. Of course, in sports, nothing would compare to the feeling of succeeding at Augusta National in 2011.

It is worth mentioning that people behind the contest added fuel to the fire, after a group of victims of the attacks of September 11, 2001 urged American golfers to withdraw of this series that has caused a schism in the sport.
