The 2023 PGA Championship prize money has grown considerably over time.
The purse was $12 million when the tournament was first held in 2021, a record sum that was only topped by the U.S. Open. The 2022 PGA Championship's prize money climbed to $15 million last year.
And this year, the money for the 2023 PGA Championship increased once more to a huge sum of $17.5 million. (With a total purse of $25 million, The Players Championship continues to have the highest payout in golf.)
The PGA champion this year will earn $3.15 million in total, an astonishing $450,000 more than Justin Thomas, who won in 2022.
The winner will take home a cool $1.89 million, and the runners-up and third-place finishers will each earn payouts of $1.19 million.
Even the players who didn't make the cut still get paid $4,000 each. How much profit did the other competitors make this year, then?
