Winning continues to be a lucrative affair at the PGA Championship in 2020.
This year’s tournament continued to feature an uber-profitable purse, which was of particular interest to Brooks Koepka, winner of the last two PGA Championships. If he had won an unprecedented third straight PGA Championship, then he stood to make nearly $2 million for the third year in a row at the PGA Championship.
Even those golfers who couldn’t sniff a first-place finish stood to make decent money this week — so long as they made 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.

How much money does the winner get?
The first-place finisher at this week’s tournament, Collin Morikawa, made $1.98 million. For context on just how much the winner’s share has increased in recent years: When Tiger Woods won the 2000 PGA Championship, he took home $900,000.
