Eugenio Chacarra claims $5.4 million LIV golf win but 22-year-old star no closer to major start, Greg Norman, video

Rising star Eugenio Lopez-Chacarra, who only turned professional in June this year, secured a massive $AU5.4 million payday on Sunday by winning the breakaway LIV golf tour event in Bangkok.

The Spaniard, whose loss decision to join the LIV Golf Series instead of the PGA Tour was a big blow, landed a monster cheque after carding a final round three-under 69 to hold off former US Masters champion Patrick Reed by three strokes at Stonehill golf club.

The 22-year-old followed up his opening two rounds of 65 and 63 to finish on 19-under par.

There was a three-way tie for third in the 54-hole event with Englishmen Paul Casey and Richard Bland finishing on 15-under par alongside American Sihwan Kim.
