Talor Gooch has detailed his frustration after losing a huge chunk of his prize money for winning last week’s LIV Golf Adelaide event to the taxman.
Gooch, 29, earned a whopping $4million after romping to victory in the fifth event of the league’s second season.
However, he saw around $1.9million of that disappear before it even made it to his bank account, courtesy of Australian laws.
Appearing on the ‘Fore The People’ podcast, Gooch admitted that it had “sucked” to lose so much money of his winnings.
“It was a little bit disheartening seeing 47 and a half percent because Australian taxes [do] not enter the account,” said the American.
“It comes, you know, almost it sometimes it’s like 48 hours, but it’s usually 24 hours after it direct deposit hits. It was a big one this last week, but yeah, it sucked that 47 and a half percent was withheld for Australian taxes, unfortunately.
“I am by no means complaining, but the four [million dollars], once you cut it all up, let’s just say that it’s lot less than four.”
Gooch, who added victory in Singapore to become the first player to win back-to-back events on LIV, also revealed that Tiger Woods has been paying close attention to developments with LIV.
“At Augusta, one of the mornings I was warming up, Tiger was right next to me warming up,” he said. “And he was like, man, you’re with Bubba [Watson]’s team now, right? And I was like, yeah. He’s like, you all are going to Adelaide, right? I’m like, yeah. He goes, man, they got some great golf there.
“And then he’s, have you ever been to Singapore? I was like, man, first time. And he’s like, man, you need to go to the casino at Marina Bay Sands.”
