Two-time major winner Dustin Johnson has been awarded $18m (£16.2m) after being announced the winner of the inaugural LIV Golf Championship.
The individual competition will conclude in Jeddah from October 14-16.
Johnson’s 16th-place finish in Bangkok at the weekend left him with an insurmountable 42-point lead.
South African Branden Grace sits behind the former world number one in the individual ranking ahead of the final round of the Saudi-backed competition.
“Locking down individual competition is important,” Johnson said.
“It’s an honor to be LIV’s first individual champion of the season.”
LIV Golf Chief Greg Norman said: “The first chapter of LIV Golf’s history could not be written without the name of Dustin Johnson.
“By any standard, Dustin Johnson is one of the elite players in the world. From the start, he has been a cornerstone of LIV Golf.
“He more than lived up to his bill and he deserves huge credit for securing LIV’s first individual title of the season.”
The runner-up in the final individual standings will earn $8m (£7.2m), including $4m (£3.6m) for third place.
Patrick Reed, the 2018 Masters winner, is currently in third place, ahead of 2022 Open champion Cameron Smith. But 14 players could still finish just behind Johnson.
Johnson won $4 million ($3.6 million) for his only victory of the series in Boston only.
The controversial LIV Golf series, which offers a $25 million purse at its events, has caused a deep divide in the sport.
There is currently no world ranking points offered for those who chose to join the series and LIV golfers were banned from the US PGA Tour.
After the final individual competition in Jeddah, a season-ending tag team championship event will take place in Miami from October 28-30.
This will see LIV Golf’s 12 teams go head-to-head for a $50m (£45.2m) prize pool.
