Dustin Johnson’s 4 Aces foursome won the season-ending team tournament in Miami, capping up the first LIV Golf series.

Twelve teams fought for a $50 (£45.2 million) prize pool, with the winners receiving $16 (£13.8 million) each.

On Sunday, four teams advanced to the final day, where the 4 Aces won by one shot after finishing seven under.

The other team members were Pat Perez, Talor Gooch, and Patrick Reed.

Johnson, a two-time major champion, had already claimed the $18 million (£16.2 million) first-place prize in the LIV Individual Golf Championship before the season’s conclusion.

Team Punch, led by Australia’s Cameron Smith, finished second on six under as the American sealed victory for his team with a close putt on the last hole.

The $25 million purse provided in past LIV Golf events, funded by Saudi Arabia, has sparked bitter rivalry in the sport.

There are presently no world ranking points available for those who have elected to participate in the series, and LIV players are not permitted to compete on the PGA Tour.
