Dustin Johnson has had a year to remember since he joined LIV golf. The former World No.1 signed a $100 million deal with the Saudi Arabia-backed league at the beginning of 2022, then he married long-time partner Paulina Gretzky, daughter of legendary ice hockey player Wayne Gretzky in June.

After ending the LIV season at the top of the merit standings, Johnson was awarded a $18 million bonus and now the 38-year-old American golfer has added $4 million more by being part of the winning ‘4Aces’ side in the LIV Golf Team Championship that concluded on Sunday. This means that Johnson’s prize money from LIV golf as the 2022 season concludes has gone up to $35 million, which is separate from the $100 million assured in wages. In other words, he is stinkingly rich!

Recently, however, Johnson expressed his discontentment at not being able to achieve enough in his opening LIV golf season.

“Yeah, I’m actually a little under where I thought I would be. But you know, I’ve done okay. I didn’t quite reach my goal. But yeah, I’m happy with it so far,” the golfer recently remarked.
