The PGA Tour’s 2023 Player Impact Program (PIP) results are in. 

This year’s bonus pool was revealed by pro Nate Lashley on social media, following a memo released to PGA Tour players on Wednesday sent by executive vice president and chief player officer Jason Gore.

PIP was first introduced as a bonus pool in 2021 to financially reward players who “generate a positive interest” in the PGA Tour, or, in other words, boost engagement and exposure.

And 20 of the most popular players in the world now receive a share of the $100million bonus pool at the end of each year.

Tiger Woods won the first two PIP bonus pools, but was beaten by Rory McIlroy to the top $15m prize this time around.

Woods still earned a staggering $12m, despite entering just two events in the 2022-2023 season. That sees his total PIP earnings rise to $35m in the past three years.

McIlroy, who won three tournaments this year and scored four points in Team Europe’s Ryder Cup win, tops the PIP standings for the first time.

Meanwhile, Jon Rahm, who is now being linked with a move to the LIV Golf League, finished in third spot, with Jordan Spieth and Scottie Scheffler rounding out the top five.

The PIP bonus pool has had mixed reviews since its inception, with veteran tour pro Lashley clearly angry about such huge sums of cash being split between a small group of the game’s elite stars.

“How many golf fans actually know what the PIP on the PGA Tour is?” he wrote on Instagram. “Would love to hear from golf/PGA fans if they think this $100 million was spent well?

“There’s 150-200 members of the PGA Tour and they just spent $100 million on 20 players. Seems a little ridiculous. Time for new leadership on the PGA Tour. This is an absolute kick in the face to the rest of the PGA Tour players.”
