2022 PGA Championship purse, prize money: Payout for each golfer from $15 million pool

History and a raised $15 million purse are on the line at the 104th PGA Championship at Southern Hills this weekend. Beyond the $2.7 million that will be paid to the winner, those who find themselves near the top of the PGA Championship leaderboard by tournament’s end will not go home empty handed even if it means doing so without the Wanamaker Trophy.

Players who finish inside the top 28 will collect a six-figure payday thus easing the pain of any potential close call at the year’s second major championship. Despite the large prize pool, it is hardly the most notable of the season as the Players Championship boasted a record-setting $20 million fund and the Masters also increased its purse to $15 million.

Cameron Smith banked $3.6 million for his victory at TPC Sawgrass with Scottie Scheffler cashing a $2.7 million check for his triumph at Augusta National. As such, Sunday’s winner in Tulsa, Oklahoma, will match Scheffler with the second-biggest winner’s share of the year.

The top of the leaderboard is loaded with neophytes, at least when it comes to winning major championships. The top four entering the final 18 holes have not only been winless at majors but on the PGA Tour as a whole. Mito Pereira holds the 54-hole lead with a three stroke advantage on Will Zalatoris and Matthew Fitzpatrick, two of five golfers who will chase him down the stretch.

Let’s take a look at how much the payouts for the 2022 PGA Championship will be divided among the top 79 players who made the cut, and be sure to check out our PGA Championship TV schedule and live stream guide.
