FedEx Cup - How the $45m prize money was distributed

Fed Ex Cup Trophy

The PGA Tour season came to an end yesterday – and, as has become customary, it was another windfall day for some of the biggest names in the game.

The FedEx Cup bonus pool was increased significantly this year, with even more money - $45million - to go around the top 30 players than ever before.

Eight different players made more than $1m at East Lake yesterday, with the top-five finishers all earning more than the first prize at any other tournament in the game this year… and yes, that includes majors.

• $15m man - Rory McIlroy wins richest prize in golf

• Six injured as lightning strikes Tour Championship

• Poulter brilliantly trolls USA with new headcovers

Here’s a look at how the cash was distributed…

1. Rory McIlroy – $15,000,000
