PGA Championship 2020 purse, payouts: How much prize money does the winner make?

Winning continues to be a lucrative affair at the PGA Championship in 2020.

This year’s tournament will continue to feature an uber-profitable purse, which should be of particular interest to Brooks Koepka, winner of the last two PGA Championships. If he is able to win an unprecedented third-straight PGA Championship, he stands to make nearly $2 million for the third year in a row at the PGA Championship.

Even those golfers who can’t sniff a first-place finish stand to make decent money this week — so long as they make the cut — with the clear-cut last-place finisher making nearly $20,000.

Below is the full breakdown of the 2020 PGA Championship purse, including winner’s share and how it compares to previous years and majors.
