The race: Here's the race organizer's final summary.

The final stage of the 2022 Saudi Tour ended, as expected by a bunched sprint and Dylan Groenewegen proved he was the fastest man of the pack claiming a second success on the event. After his master piece on the decisive hilltop finish of stage 4, Maxim Van Gils wins this 2nd edition of the Saudi Tour. In the final general classification, the young Belgian wins by 36’’ over Santiago Buitrago and 48’’ over Rui Costa.

For the final stage of the 2022 Saudi Tour, the 86 remaining riders had the opportunity to discover the splendid Old Town of Al Ula where the start was set. A quick stroll through the picturesque cobbled streets before taking off for a 138-km stage.

Soon after crossing the km 0 line several riders blasted away. In vain at first. Eventually Jannik Steimle (QST) made his move. The German was later caught by three other men at km 14: Charmig, Blue jersey Urianstad (both UXT) and of course the untiring Tzortzakis ready to battle it out for the Most Active rider’s jersey. At km 25 their advantage over the pack had reached 1’55’’. A gap that was rapidly stabilised by the likes of teams Lotto-Soudal and BikeExchange-Jayco.

At the first Intermediate Active sprint, Tzortzakis captured 3 precious points ahead of his rival Urianstad while the pack had the escapees under control at 1’35’’. After so many efforts this week, Tzortzakis was the first to be dropped. The Greek was swallowed by the chasing pack with 25kms to go. The leading three could then still count on a 50’’ advantage.

The second Intermediate sprint was claimed by Urianstad which meant he was guaranteed to win the Blue Jersey. Eventually only one man remained in the lead, Steimle, but he was finally caught with exactly one lap to go, on the line where the bonus sprint was claimed by Van Poppel (BOH).

The pack mainly controlled by team Bahrain Victorious remained bunched all the way to the last straight. With just under 3kms to go, Caleb Ewan (LTS) lost all hopes of a second success when he punctured. Well led out by his new BikeExchange team mates, Dylan Groenewegen powered to the line beating Dan McLay (ARK) and Davide Ballerini (QST). The Dutchman wins again on this Saudi Tour and adds a 58th success to his career record. He also wins the Red jersey (point’s classification) ahead of Caleb Ewan by just one point.

Perfectly surrounded by his Lotto-Soudal squad Maxim Van Gils made it to the finish within the peloton and that of course meant a first overall victory in the Middle-East. The young Belgian who had made the difference yesterday at the Skyviews of Harrat Uwayrid wins the general classification ahead of Santiago Buitrago (TBV) and Rui Costa. As well as the Green jersey, the 22-year-old also wins the White jersey for the best young rider. Martin Urianstad (UXT) finishes most active rider of this 2nd edition.

Weather at Alula near the start/finish at 4:00 PM, local time: 17C (63F), fair, with the wind from the southwest at 40 km/hr (25 mph). No rain.

The race: Here's the stage four report from the race organizer:

More wind and more drama in the Saudi Tour. After a fierce battle on the flat part of this fourth stage where several teams made the best of the tough conditions to create chaos in the pack, a group of 15 reached the bottom of the final climb to the Skyviews of Harrat Uwayrid. Andrea Bagioli (QST) was the first to attack but was later caught and dropped by young Maxim Van Gils (LTS). The 22-year-old went on to claim his first professional victory ahead of Mezgec (BEX) and Declercq (QST). The Belgian also takes command of the general classification and will be wearing the Green Jersey on the final day of the event tomorrow.

After an action-packed stage 3 due to the strong wind blowing across the Al Ula region, it was slightly calmer this morning at the start of day 4 of the Saudi Tour set at the Winter Park. The 90 remaining riders took off just before 11 AM for a 149-km stage all the way to the spectacular Skyviews of Harrat Uwayrid, in other words a demanding summit finish awaited the peloton.

As soon as the first kilometre, ‘’mister breakaway’’ Polychronis Tzortzakis (KUW) took off from the pack. He was rapidly caught by Muhamad Othman (TSG). Both men reached km 21 enjoying a 2’30’’ lead. While Tzortzakis made it first to the first Intermediate sprint (km 57) the pack had lost more time: 3’20’’.

The situation changed dramatically with the wind picking up. Under the influence of teams DSM and of course Quickstep-Alpha Vynil, the pack broke up into several groups, leaving only 16 riders in the first one at km 80. Six kilometres later the front two were caught and eventually dropped. The leading 16 continued pushing hard. In that leading group were the likes of Bonifazio, Oss, Turgis (TEN), Mezgec (BEX), Van Gils (LTS), Bagioli (QST) and four team mates, Van Poppel (BOH) and Consonni (COF).

The front group reached the second Intermediate sprint (km 120) led out by Turgis with a 1’20’’ advantage over the chasing pack led by the Bahrain Victorious squad of Green Jersey Santiago Buitrago. With 25kms to go, fifteen riders remained in the lead (Denz dropped) enjoying a 1’25’’ advantage. With 10kms to go Andrea Bagioli attacked on the steep climb of the day. The Italian was later caught and dropped by Maxim Van Gils. The Belgian reached the summit claiming the bonus sprint (km 140) with a 30” lead over Bagioli and 1’ over Rui Costa (UAE) and the Green Jersey group.

Van Gils enjoys his wn.

Despite the strong wind blowing on the last 8kms, Van Gils continued his impressive solo effort. The 22-year-old eventually crossed the finish line victoriously, beating Luka Mezgec (BEX) and Tim Declercq (QST) by 40”. Van Gils claims his first ever pro win on this Saudi Tour and takes command of the general classification. He’ll therefore be defending the Green Jersey (and the White Jersey for best young rider) on tomorrow’s final stage enjoying a rather comfortable lead of 36” over Buitrago and 48” over Rui Costa. The Red Jersey (point’s classification) remains on the shoulders of Caleb Ewan (LTS) while Urianstad is still the leader of the Most Active rider classification.

Weather at Alula near the start/finish at 1:45 PM, local time: 23C (73F), partly cloudy, with the wind from the west at 29 km/hr (18 mph). No rain is forecast.

The race: Here's the report from the race organizer:

After a fabulous battle in the windy conditions of Saudi Arabia, stage 3 ended once again with a bunched sprint. For his third race under his new BikeExchange-Jayco colours Dylan Groenewegen managed to deliver. In the old town of AlUla, the Dutchman outsprinted Dan McLay and Caleb Ewan to conquer victory. Despite suffering all day in the echelons, Santiago Buitrago keeps the overall leader’s Green Jersey.

Seeing the riders show up close to 20min before the flag was dropped on the start line said it all… A windy day was expected and there was a tense feeling in the peloton. Indeed, shortly after leaving the impressive Tayma Hadaj well, chaos struck. The strong sidewind on the opening 30kms created all sorts of damage. Crashes (Selig and Laas),  dropped riders and of course echelons. Eventually after 14kms only 26 riders remained at the front including: Ewan (LTS), second overall, Gaviria (UAE), Oss, Turgis (TEN), Groenewegen (BEX), Bagioli, Ballerini, Senechal and three other Quickstep riders, Van Poppel (TBV), Consonni (COF) as well as White jersey and 3rd man overall Charmig (UXT), but not the overall leader Santiago Buitrago (TBV). And what a battle it would be. The front 26 reached km 30 with a 1’05’’ advantage over the Green Jersey group. Slowly that gap started dropping but it still took close to 30kms to close that gap.

After a very short moment of calm, three riders took off: Turgis (TEN), Planckaert (AFC) and Declercq (ARK). They reached the first Intermediate sprint (km 83) led out by Planckaert with a 3’20’’ advantage. After another change in direction the wind specialists of Quickstep decided to create more drama. Again the pack broke into several echelons with only 16 riders in the front group including the Green Jersey and 6 Quickstep men, but no Caleb Ewan this time. While the front three were caught, a grueling battle continued. Finally things settled down at km100 and the pack bunched up together again.

Once again, there was no stopping Anthony Turgis. The Frenchman decided to give it another go at km 102, but this time on his own. He reached the second Intermediate sprint with a 3’ lead over counter-attackers Bonifazio (TEN) and Keisse (QST) and 5’ over the pack. While the two chasers were caught, Turgis bravely continued his effort despite the strong headwind. He still had a 2’ advantage with 25kms to go. The TotalEnergies rider managed to make it to the bonus sprint with a 40’’ lead but was caught shortly after.

Despite a solo effort from Niki Terpstra with 5kms to go, the pack remained bunched all the way to the old town of Al Ula. Well led out by his new BikeExchange-Jayco team mates, Dylan Groenewegen powered to the line, beating Dan McLay (ARK) and Caleb Ewan (LTS) to win his first success of 2022, his 57th overall. After an intense battle all day long, Santago Buitrago manages to keep his overall leader’s Green Jersey and the best young rider’s White Jersey and will have a 3” advantage over Caleb Ewan when he starts tomorrow’s decisive stage 4. The Australian remains the leader of the point’s classification while Martin Urianstad keeps his Blue Jersey (most active rider).

Weather at Alula near the start/finish at 4:00 PM, local time: 23C (73F), fair, with the wind from the south at 11 km/hr (7 mph). No rain.

The race: Here's the race organizer's stage two summary.

Stage 2 of the 2022 Saudi Tour will be a day that Santiago Buitrago will remember for a very long time. The 22-year-old Colombian captured his very first professional victory in Abu Rakha. Making the best of the final decisive climb, the Bahrain Victorious rider powered away from the pack and eventually beat to the line Andrea Bagioli (QST) and Charmig (UXT). A fine day for Buitrago who also takes the overall leader’s Green Jersey.

After yesterday’s breathtaking stage that included a passage through the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hegra, the 96 riders of the 2022 Saudi Tour gathered together in front of the Taibah University for the start of stage 3. And a fast start it would be as the peloton headed towards the north west of the Al Ula region.

Things settled down when Jeroen Meijers (TSG) broke away at km2. He was rapidly caught by two other brave escapees: Best young rider of the Tour, Martin Urianstad (UXT) and Polychronis Tzortzakis (KUW), both already present in yesterday’s two breakaways. In their quest for the Most Active rider’s jersey there would be quite a battle for points between these two men. Round 1 would go Urianstad’s way when he claimed the first Intermediate Active sprint (km16) ahead of rival Tzortzakis while the peloton, not too concerned, remained 3’15’’ adrift.

The gap grew to 4’10’’ at km 30 before gradually dropping down as Thomas De Gendt took control of the peloton’s stage. With the leading trio under control, the race could go on quietly as the riders enjoyed a pleasant tailwind. At the second Intermediate Active sprint (km94), Urianstad again captured the most points comforting his lead in the blue jersey classification. Meanwhile the chasing pack led by UAE Team Emirates and Lotto-Soudal moved closer: 2’10’’. The gap dropped down to 30’’ with 25kms to go. The front men still managed to make it clear to the bonus sprint (km 142) with Urianstad beating Meijers while Tzortzakis was dropped and caught by the pack.

The last rider to survive would be Meijers but he too was gobbled up by the pack at km 150.

With just over 6 kilometres to go Julius Jayde (KUW) gave it a go on his own but the South African’s solo effort only lasted two kilometres. Eventually on the final climb of the day to reach Abu Rakha at 1273m in altitude, Santiago Buitrago (TBV) and Daniel Oss (TEN) pulled away. They were soon caught by Andrea Bagioli who had clearly recovered from his crash yesterday. While Oss failed to follow, Buitrago remained smatrly in the wheel of his Italian companion. The Colombian made his decisive move in the final 100m, beating Bagioli by just a second while Anthon Charmig (UXT) finished third at 7”. Buitrago claims his first ever pro success in his second year under the Bahrain Victorious colours. He also captures the overall leader’s Green Jersey but only has a slim 7” advantage over Caleb Ewan (LTS), sixth today and still in the lead of the point’s classification. Alongside the overall lead, Buitrago also becomes the best young rider of the event while Urianstad keeps the Blue Jersey.

Weather at Alula near the start/finish of Winter Park at 4:00 PM, local time: 18C (64F), fair, with the wind from the north at 11 km/hr (7 mph). No rain.

The race: Here's the race organizer's report:

The Saudi Tour is back and it returns with a bang. The opening stage of this second edition that now takes place in the region of AlUla, north-west of the Kingdom, ended as expected with a bunched sprint. After surviving the 7-km long gravel section through the spectacular site of Hegra the pack made it bunched to Winter Park where Caleb Ewan (LTS) conquered his first win of the year. The Australian beats Martin Laas (BOR) and Fernando Gaviria (UAE) to claim the first Green Jersey of this Saudi Tour.

Two years after the inaugural Saudi Tour took place in and around Riyadh, it was back to racing in Saudi Arabia but this time in the north western part of the Kingdom around AlUla. A splendid setting and perfect weather conditions for the start of stage 1 at the Winter Park. After the strong wind blowing during the opening ceremony a day prior in front of the impressive Elephant Rock, it was far calmer for this opening stage.

THREE IN THE LEAD Shortly after 11 AM, the 96 riders representing 15 teams took off for a 198-km race that would include a gravel sequence while going through the picturesque Hegra zone. It took just a kilometre for Polychronis Tzortzakis (KUW) to break away from the pack. The Greek was rapidly caught by two other escapees: Urianstad (UXT) and Mat Amin (TSG). The leading trio reached the first Intermediate Most Active Rider sprint (km 18) with an advantage of 3’40’’ as Urianstad captured the most points. The pack eventually started chasing led out by teams BikeExchange-Jayco and Lotto-Soudal. Just before a change in direction the gap had dropped down to 1’30’’ and with the wind that had picked up blowing from the side, the pack accelerated. After a brave first effort, the front men were caught at km 75.5.

UNTIRING DUO Another left turn meant the wind would be even more favourable and the pace of the pack continued picking up. There was no breaking away at this speed... at least until km 102 when Urianstad and Tzortzakis again powered away. At the second Intermediate Active sprint won by Urianstad, the gap over the peloton had reached 1’30’’. Their second effort was once again vain as the Norwegian and his Greek companion were caught again at km 147. The pack remained bunched as it entered the splendid site of Hegra.

SPLENDID HEGRA  Once on the 7-km long gravel section of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hegra, drama occurred early. Indeed, a crash sent several riders to the ground including Italy’s Andrea Bagioli (QST). Among the dropped riders was also Ronde Van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix champion Niki Terpstra (TEN). Meanwhile teams Lotto-Soudal and Quickstep were pushing hard at the front.

MIRZA IN THE LEAD  With 11 kms to go, UAE’s Youssif Mirza managed to take off. The rider from the Emirates saw his lead grow gradually to 15” just five kilometres from the line. But it wouldn’t be enough to stay clear of the hungry pack. He was caught just before the final 3-km sign. Well led out by his Lotto-Soudal sprint train, Caleb Ewan flew to victory. For his debut at the Saudi Tour, the Australian crossed the line with a comfortable lead over Marttin Laas (BOR) and Fernando Gaviria. Ewan naturally captures the first overall leader’s Green Jersey of this edition. He also takes command of the point’s classification while Martin Urianstad claims the Blue Jersey for the Most Active Rider as well as the White Jersey for the best young rider.

The tour, organised by the Ministry of Sports and the Saudi Cycling Federation, will be held from February 1 to 5.

This year’s location will take riders on an incredible five-stage journey through the beautiful landscapes, wondrous heritage sites and challenging desert terrain of AlUla.

The track for the five stages

The route is expected to be more demanding than in 2020 due to a gradient climb towards the Skyviews of Harrat Uwayrid.

The first stage will be launched from Winter Park and is 198 kilometres long. The Saudi Tour’s longest and most scenic route – made up of primarily flat course – brings riders right in front of the Unesco World Heritage Site, Hegra. This opening stage is dedicated to the fastest men in the peloton, and the first leader of the Saudi Tour will be a sprinter.

2022 Saudi Tour route

The second stage starts from Taibah University and reaches Abu Rakha with a distance of 163.9 kilometres. Punchers will love this uphill finish after a leg-breaking second stage on the Saudi Tour.

The third route starts from Tayma Hadaj Well, Tayma, one of the biggest wells of Saudi Arabia, to AlUla Old Town, covering 181.2 kilometres. Cyclists will end this stage in front of the castle, at the end of a one-kilometre-long straight line.

The fourth stage begins from Winter Park to Skyviews of Harrat Uwayrid and is 149.3 kilometres long. Riders can expect some dreadfully difficult kilometres just before the finish.

The race will conclude in the fifth stage, taking riders on a large circuit around AlUla Old Town with a distance of 138.9 kilometres.

A race full of stars

There are 16 international teams that are competing for a chance to win the prestigious title.

Other events will take place alongside the Saudi Tour, including a mass-participation race (Saudi Tour Ride), a women’s race (Saudi Tour Women Ride), a junior race organised by the Saudi Cycling Federation (Saudi Tour Challenge) and a dedicated race for children (Mini Kids Race, at every finishing area of the five stages).

Riyadh held the inaugural Saudi Tour in February 2020, when the German cyclist Phil Bauhaus from Bahrain-Victorious claimed the title.

Saudi Tour to return in 2022 after one year hiatus

The inaugural race was won by German sprinter Phil Bauhaus in early 2020

Saudi Tour 2020 podium

The Saudi Tour is set to return for its second edition after a year out due to Covid-19, with the inaugural race taking place just before the pandemic.

In 2020 it was the sprinters who came out on top with German Bahrain Victorious rider Phil Bauhaus led out by Mark Cavendish to beat Nacer Bouhanni (Arkéa-Samsic), Rui Costa taking second thanks to various breakaway bonus seconds.

Race organisers ASO, also responsible for the Tour de France, have managed to get the go ahead for the event to be run in 2022, unlike others such as the Tour of Utah , Tour de Yorkshire and the Australian WorldTour races which have all been cancelled for next year.

>>> Tom Dumoulin confirms he will ride for the overall at a Grand Tour in 2022

Abdullah bin Ali Al-Wathlan, President of Saudi Cycling Federation, President of Cycling Organizing Committee of the GCC States, said: "With the unlimited support from the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, we are pleased to host the second edition of the Saudi Tour for 2022, which is a global cycling event and one of the most important opportunities to view the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

"On behalf of all athletes and those who love this sport, I am pleased to express my happiness that my country is hosting this event and the distinguished efforts made by His Royal Highness Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, Minister of Sports - President of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee, preserving the Kingdom's position and accomplishing international achievements locally and abroad, and on the follow-up and attention from His Highness Prince Fahad bin Jalawi bin Abdulaziz bin Musaed, Vice President of the Olympic Committee for all sports federations."

The race is currently coming back to the calendar on Tuesday, February 1 and running until Saturday, February 5.

It is likely that the route will have similar characteristics to the first edition, with sprinters being the main focus, but there are plenty hills and mountains in Saudi Arabia, so it is unknown if some testing ascents will be utilised or not.

The current start list has Cofidis, Team DSM, Team TotalEnergies and Bora-Hansgrohe all down to race.

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!

I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.

It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.

After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.

When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.

My bike is a well used Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on my local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being my preferred terrain.

Saudi Tour race 2022 starts in “Al-Ula”

Saudi Tour race 2022 starts in "Al-Ula"

The inauguration ceremony of the “Saudi Tour 2022” race took place recently in the province of Al-Ula.

The ceremony was held in the Kingdom for the second time under the auspice of the Saudi Ministry of Sports in collaboration with the Saudi Cycling Federation and under the umbrella of the International Federation, was held in the Saudi province of Al-Ula.

The “Saudi Tour 2022,” which is part of the Quality of Life program, will begin on Tuesday and run through Saturday, February 5, 2022, with the participation of 15 foreign teams and a distance of 831.3 kilometers.

The opening ceremony, which took place in front of Elephant Mountain, one of AlUla’s most popular tourist attractions, featured a review of the competing teams. The event also featured a presentation of the course information, as well as the start and endpoints for each of the five stages.

The first stage will begin at the Winter Park, while the second stage will begin at Taibah University for Girls, the third round will begin in front of Taymaa Hadaj well, the fourth stage will begin at the Winter Park, and the race will culminate in the ancient town of Al-Ula in its fifth round.

Saudi Tour: Van Gils wins stage 4

Belgian takes over race leader ahead of final stage

HARRAT UWAYRID SAUDI ARABIA FEBRUARY 04 Maxim Van Gils of Belgium and Team Lotto Soudal celebrates winning during the 6th Saudi Tour 2022 Stage 4 a 1493km stage from Winter Park to Skyviews of Harrat Uwayrid 1159m SaudiTour on February 04 2022 in Harrat Uwayrid Saudi Arabia Photo by Tim de WaeleGetty Images

Lotto Soudal won their second stage at the Saudi Tour after Maxim Van Gils soloed to victory on stage 4 at the Skyviews of Harrat Uwayrid.

The 22-year-old second-year pro followed Andrea Bagioli's (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl) attack on the double-digit gradient slopes of the main climb of the day, 10 kilometres from the finish before the Italian cracked under pressure from the Belgian, leaving Van Gils to ride alone to the finish.

Luka Mezgec (BikeExchange-Jayco) took second place ahead of Tim Declercq (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl), though at 40 seconds back it means that Van Gils is the new race leader.

He heads into Saturday's final stage with a 36-second advantage over second-placed Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain Victorious), while Rui Costa (UAE Team Emirates) is third at 48 seconds.

Earlier in the day, the wind provoked echelons and splits in the peloton, with Buitrago on the wrong side of a move which saw Van Gils, Oss, Mezgec and the majority of QuickStep-AlphaVinyl get up the road.

The winning move was made on the three-kilometre climb at the end of the stage from the group largely made up of non-climbers. There, the average gradient of 12 per cent enough for Van Gils to push on and build an insurmountable lead to take his first career victory.

Buitrago and Costa would eventually make it back to the group, taking advantage of the steep slopes to do so, though by that time the winning move – and the race lead – had already gone.

Bryson DeChambeau pinning Olympic dreams on Los Angeles 2028 after missing Paris games

Newly-crowned US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau sets sights on Los Angeles 2028 after decision to switch to LIV Golf costs him place at Paris Olympics this summer; Official World Golf Ranking does not recognise closed-shop LIV Golf events

Wednesday 19 June 2024 22:35, UK

Bryson DeChambeau

Bryson DeChambeau is pinning his hopes of Olympic glory on the Los Angeles games in 2028.

Unable to participate at Tokyo 2020 due to COVID-19, the two-time US Open champion's decision to join LIV Golf is keeping him out of the games in Paris this summer.

"I've done my best up until now to give myself a chance according to the (world ranking), but I realise and respect where the current situation of the game is, albeit it's frustrating and disappointing," DeChambeau said, with the US Open trophy beside him.

"Hopefully 2028 will be a little different situation, and it will make it that much sweeter."

DeChambeau is 10th in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR). The Olympics uses the rankings to set the 60-man field, and the OWGR does not recognise LIV Golf with its closed shop (the same 54 players all year competing in 54-hole events) and simultaneous team play.

  • Latest News

The OWGR has not figured out how to measure such a league with two dozen open tours around the world, and LIV hasn't offered a solution on its end.

That means DeChambeau has only been able to earn rankings points in the majors this year, and he did his part by finishing tied for sixth in the Masters and second to Xander Schauffele in the PGA Championship before his US Open triumph last week at Pinehurst No 2.

A maximum of four players can represent any country in Olympic golf, and DeChambeau is the sixth highest-ranked American. The US team will feature Masters champion Scottie Scheffler, Schauffele, Wyndham Clark and Collin Morikawa.

DeChambeau made the US squad for the Tokyo Games only to test positive for COVID the week before his planned flight to Japan, which kept him from representing his country.

  • Dec 2023: A date of December 31, 2023 was set to conclude the deal to bring men's professional golf back together, but that passed without the Framework Agreement being ratified
  • Feb 2024: The PGA Tour secure a $3bn investment as part of a partnership deal with the Strategic Sports Group, not PIF
  • May 2024: McIlroy's interest in returning to the policy board is rejected. In a big blow, director Jimmy Dunne and board member Mark Flaherty resign

The 30-year-old knew not qualifying for the Olympics was a possibility when he joined LIV in 2022. He's played only one tournament outside the majors and LIV events since then - last year's Saudi International - but has finished in the top 10 in five of his nine majors played during that stretch.

PGA Tour officials are talking with the Saudi backers of LIV Golf, trying to reach an agreement for a new model for professional golf.

Bryson Dechambeau

DeChambeau said he had been hoping for an agreement by now to allow him to play in the Olympics.

"It hasn't worked out that way, and again I respect the decision that I made, and it is what it is," he said. "It hurts, but you know what? There's another one four years later."

Until then, all DeChambeau can do is enjoy himself.

He's been on a whirlwind tour since he beat Rory McIlroy by one shot last weekend at Pinehurst. He has appeared on a handful of TV shows and estimated he's maybe slept 12 hours since Sunday.

He continued his celebration swing Wednesday, carrying the trophy with him into his news conference. He also made sure everyone touched it on his way out, as he did with the fans at Pinehurst.

BEST US OPEN BRYSON

His win also has given LIV Golf a boost. This event about 30 miles south of Nashville is nearly sold out before Friday's start at The Grove, designed by LIV CEO Greg Norman, which also has hosted a Korn Ferry Tour event.

DeChambeau said he's feeling as if he's playing as well as he did in 2018 when he won consecutive FedEx Cup playoff events - even if the stats and rankings don't put him at No. 1.

He dodged the question of whether or not he's the best player in the world, leaving that to others to answer.

"I'm not going to put a label or title on myself," DeChambeau said. "That's not what I do. I'm here to go play the best golf I can and inspire others and give people some great entertainment."

The World’s Highest-Paid Golfers 2024

Jon rahm is no. 1 with a record $218 million in earnings—more than double the next highest player—despite not winning a tournament this year. and five other liv golfers join him atop the leaderboard., by justin birnbaum , forbes staff.

In 2022, when Scottie Scheffler wrapped up his final round at the BMW Championship in Wilmington, Delaware, he accomplished something no player on the PGA Tour had ever done before. The world’s No. 1 golfer posted a record-breaking $14 million in regular season earnings . A year earlier, Jon Rahm topped the PGA Tour’s official money list with a little more than half that amount, $7.7 million.

Scheffler followed that campaign with another extraordinary season, obliterating his own record and earning more than $21 million last year. And as impressive as that may have been, the 27-year-old has already surpassed his mark again, having won more than $24 million with roughly a third of the 2024 golf season remaining. Scheffler has been dominant on the course again, winning the Masters for the second time and four other tournaments. But he’s also been the beneficiary of rising financial tides in the sport.

The PGA Tour will award $402.4 million in prize money in just the 2024 regular season alone, with roughly another $340 million on the table when factoring the four Majors, a slate of yet-to-be scheduled fall events and bonus pools from the FedEx Cup, the Comcast Business Tour Top 10 and the Player Impact Program. That amounts to more than $740 million disbursed to players this year, about 9% more than the $680 million from the 2022-23 season. (In 2024, the PGA Tour returned to a calendar year format as opposed to the multi-year schedule it had used since 2013.)

A lucrative media rights package spread across CBS, NBC, ESPN and Warner Bros. Discovery, which reportedly pays the PGA Tour nearly $900 million per year, has played a role in the sport’s financial growth. Despite the progress the PGA Tour has made, it’s a player from LIV Golf, Jon Rahm, who is the highest-paid golfer for 2024.

The breakaway tour, backed by the $925 billion (assets) Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia, has permanently altered the economics of golf with its unusual format and astronomical paydays . By the time LIV completes its third season in 2024, it will have awarded nearly $1.1 billion in prize money, on top of committing at least $1 billion in guarantees to entice the defections of star golfers to the upstart league.

“It’s simple economics,” says Tim Derdenger, an associate professor at Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business. “Competition is good for the players.”

Combined, the world’s 10 highest-paid golfers earned an estimated $678 million over the past 12 months before taxes and agents’ fees, a 10% decrease from $752 million in 2023. That’s mainly because LIV has slowed its outsized spending spree in the past year, with Rahm being the only big-name defection. The 29-year-old Spaniard joined the Saudi-backed tour for a reported $350 million guarantee, half of which Forbes estimates he received up front. With total earnings of $218 million, he’s the third LIV golfer to rank No. 1 on our list in the last three years even though he has yet to win an event on his new tour.

Rory McIlroy, a stalwart PGA Tour player, is a distant second this year with $83 million in total earnings, despite collecting victories at the Genesis Open, the Zurich Classic and the Wells Fargo Championship over the past 12 months. The 35-year-old McIlroy remains the most successful pitchman not named Tiger Woods in the sport, partnering with Nike, Optum, and Workday, among others. Woods, who pulled in an estimated $67 million and left Nike in January after 27 years to launch a joint apparel venture with TaylorMade called Sun Day Red, ranked No. 3, just ahead of the fourth-place Scheffler at $61 million.

The long-term impact of golf’s fractured landscape, however, remains unclear. While the warring tours have increased player earnings over the past few years, dividing the best golfers in the world has left fans and longtime sponsors of the sport with a less-compelling product. A solution appeared to be on the horizon last June when the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and the Saudi Public Investment Fund agreed to join forces to form a new for-profit, commercial entity called PGA Tour Enterprises. The move, which ended a slew of bitter legal battles between the tours, has also drawn antitrust concerns from Congress and the U.S. Department of Justice.

Negotiations have stalled and, in the meantime, the PGA Tour found another investor in a consortium of American billionaires. Strategic Sports Group, which is backed Boston Red Sox co-owners John Henry and Tom Werner, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, New York Mets owner Steve Cohen and Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck, as well as other investors, imbued the nascent enterprise with $3 billion in January. In the months since, PGA Commissioner Jay Monahan has outlined a $1.5 billion equity program earmarked for players on tour, and Woods joined the PGA Tour Enterprises’ 13-member board of directors.

While the recent resignation of Jimmy Dunne, a PGA Tour policy member and one of the architects behind the initial deal with the PIF, has done little to inspire hope that a revised agreement is coming any time soon, the PGA Tour issued a vague statement citing progress from a recent meeting in New York on June 7. “Definitely things are heading in the right direction,” McIlroy told reporters at the Memorial Tournament over the weekend . “A lot of progress was made. I can't really say much more than that, but it was really positive.”

THE WORLD’S 10 HIGHEST-PAID GOLFERS 2024

No. 1 • $218 million

On-course: $198 million | off-course: $20 million | age: 29 | tour: liv.

Much like many of his LIV compatriots, Rahm’s move to the upstart league cost him a slew of sponsors. In July, he signed a multi-year extension with digital supply chain firm Blue Yonder, having previously worn their logo on his chest. However, the partnership is no longer active and he now wears the logo of his LIV team, Legion XIII, in that spot. Rahm will not compete in the U.S. Open this weekend due to a foot injury.

No. 2 • $83 million

Rory mcilroy, on-course: $38 million | off-course: $45 million | age: 35 | tour: pga.

Andrew Redington/Getty Images

One of the PGA Tour’s most outspoken supporters since the arrival of LIV Golf, McIlroy recently lamented how the division have played out. “In hindsight, I wish I hadn’t have gotten as deeply involved in it,” he told reporters last month . The ongoing tour drama hasn’t stopped his momentum off the course, though. McIlroy cofounded TMRW Sports with Tiger Woods and sports executive Mike McCarley, which plans to launch a stadium-based, virtual golf league in 2025, while his Symphony Ventures has invested in companies like Puttery, Hyperice and Whoop.

No. 3 • $67 million

Tiger woods, on-course: $12 million | off-course: $55 million | age: 48 | tour: pga.

Woods may no longer be the Major-winning machine he once was, but he still found a way to break another record this year. In April, he made the cut at the Masters for the 24th consecutive time, passing Gary Player and Fred Couples. Unfortunately, his pursuit of a sixth green jacket came up far short. Woods finished 60th at Augusta.

No. 4 • $61 million

Scottie scheffler, on-course: $41 million | off-course: $20 million | age: 27 | tour: pga.

Scheffler currently has a vice grip on the World Golf Ranking’s No. 1 spot. His only blemish in 2024 was a traffic-related incident while on the way to the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club that resulted in the alleged assault of a Louisville police officer and Scheffler’s subsequent arrest . The charges were dropped two weeks later, though he told reporters he’s still struggling with the incident . “It’s not something that I love reliving, just because it was fairly traumatic for me being arrested going into the golf course.”

No. 5 • $47 million

Cameron smith, on-course: $43 million | off-course: $4 million | age: 30 | tour: liv.

Smith may have received a reported $100 million guarantee to join LIV Golf, but his time with the upstart tour has been far more lucrative on the course than a decade spent competing in PGA Tour events and Majors. In three seasons, the 2022 British Open Champion has won just shy of $40 million in prize money with LIV , according to Spotrac, roughly $5 million more than his career total on the PGA Tour .

No. 6 • $44 million

Bryson dechambeau, on-course: $43 million | off-course: $1 million | age: 30 | tour: liv.

DeChambeau may not have the endorsement portfolio he once had, a list that once included Cobra Puma Golf, Bridgestone and Rocket Mortgage, among others. But his lighter sponsorship load has opened other opportunities, such as growing his YouTube presence. DeChambeau’s channel now has more than 670,000 subscribers and over 76 million views, with a nine-hole match between DeChambeau and Mickelson scoring 2.6 million views alone.

No. 7 • $43 million

Brooks koepka, on-course: $35 million | off-course: $8 million | age: 34 | tour: liv.

Maddie Meyer/Getty Images

Koepka celebrated his 34th birthday last month by winning the fourth LIV Golf event of his career at Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore, which made him the career leader in titles on the nascent tour. He also remains the only golfer to win a Major under the LIV banner, with a victory at the 2023 PGA Championship. Off the course, Koepka has partnerships with Nike, Srixon and NetJets.

No. 8 • $40 million

Viktor hovland, on-course: $33 million | off-course: $7 million | age: 26 | tour: pga.

Hovland is still chasing his first Major title and he’s come achingly close, finishing second to Koepka at the PGA Championship last year. In the meantime, he has plenty to celebrate. Hovland secured the FedEx Cup crown in 2023, which came with an $18 million bonus.

No. 9 • $38 million

Phil mickelson, on-course: $36 million | off-course: $2 million | age: 53 | tour: liv.

Mike Stobe/Getty Images

Mickelson has earned more than $1 billion in his golf career, becoming the second player, after Woods, to surpass that mark. However, his ability to spend has become equally infamous. The 53-year-old allegedly bet more than $1 billion over the past three decades, with losses reaching as much as $100 million, according to a book written by renowned professional gambler Billy Walters . Off the course, Mickelson has become significantly less active since joining LIV, but he did cofound coffee company For Wellness in 2020.

No. 10 • $37 million

Dustin johnson, on-course: $32 million | off-course: $5 million | age: 39 | tour: liv.

Johnson gave a simple explanation for why he joined LIV Golf. “Play less golf, play for more money—it just made sense,” he told Forbes in 2022 . The two-time Major winner hasn’t quite earned the roughly $75 million he did in his PGA Tour career yet, but with $56 million in LIV prize money, according to Spotrac, and a reported guarantee of $125 million, he’s not exactly hurting for cash. The 39-year-old also recently joined a slew of legendary athletes, including Derek Jeter, Serena Williams and Michael Strahan, as an investor in Cincoro Tequila.

METHODOLOGY

This year’s list of the world’s highest-paid golfers tracks earnings over the last 12 months, dating to the 2023 U.S. Open. The on-course earnings figures include prize money and bonuses, as well as upfront payments golfers received for signing with LIV Golf. Based on conversations with a dozen industry sources, Forbes estimates top-tier LIV players received half of their guarantees upfront while lower-tier players received smaller sums in bulk. Forbes estimates any remaining signing money is being paid in equal annual installments across four-year contracts. Bonuses from the PGA Tour’s Player Impact Program are included in on-course income, while payments for joining the TGL were not included since the league pushed its start back to 2025.

The off-course earnings figures are an estimate of sponsorship deals, appearance fees and memorabilia and licensing income over the last 12 months, plus cash returns from any businesses in which the athlete has a significant interest. Forbes does not include investment income such as interest payments or dividends but does account for payouts from equity stakes athletes have sold. Forbes does not deduct for taxes or agents’ fees.
