Tour Championship 2020: How much each player will earn

Fed Ex Cup Trophy

If you’re wondering why every player in the field at this week’s Tour Championship in Atlanta is wearing a smile as wide as Georgia, it might have something to do with the prize money at stake.

A total of $60million will be shared amongst the 30 players in the field at East Lake in the final event of this COVID-shortened PGA Tour season.

That’s right: SIXTY -- MILLION -- DOLLARS.

A mind-boggling $15million of that will go to the winner of the tournament – more than the entire career earnings of major champions such as Greg Norman, Angel Cabrera, Paul Azinger and Mark O’Meara.
