PGA Championship tournament purse 2022

The total purse for the 2022 PGA Championship is set at $15 million, a $3 million increase from last year. For comparison, this year’s Masters was a record $15 million purse.

The PGA Championship pays a massive amount of cash to the winner of the tournament. Of the four first-place finishes, Tiger Woods has raked in more than $4 million – this year’s winner is expected to make up more than half of that total.

Phil Mickelson, who won big in 2021, earned the same as the winner of this year’s event (Mickelson won’t repeat). Rather, Jon Rahm entered the 2022 tournament as the favorite to win and took home the flamboyant winner’s check.
