Record prize money announced for US PGA

Us Pga Leaderboard

For the first time in the championship’s history, the winner of this week’s US PGA will walk away with a cheque for more than $2million.

The PGA of America has increased the prize fund for its flagship event, raising it from the $11million that was dished out at TPC Harding Park last year to $12million.

A cool $2.16million will go to the eventual winner, with the runner-up also set to take home a seven-figure sum.

The increased prize fund makes the US PGA the second most lucrative major in golf, behind the US Open, and the sport’s third richest event. The PLAYERS Championship remains the single biggest money-maker for the game’s top players, with a purse of $15million.

Here’s a full breakdown of the prize money at stake this week…
