How much could PGA Tour players earn at the end of the season? Get a full rundown of the bonus structure here

The FedEx Cup prize money has been set at a lucrative $60 million, the same money that was on offer in 2019 and 2020.

The top 150 in the FedEx Cup standings will receive payouts with the eventual winner receiving a staggering $15 million after the conclusion of the Tour Championship.

Despite the Tour Championship counting as an official victory there will be no prize purse set for the event with the top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings pocketing their FedEx Cup bonus instead.

If a player qualifies for the Tour Championship but is unable to compete they will receive the prize money for 30th place. No one will replace that player in the field.

The player who lifts the FedEx Cup trophy at the end of the season will also receive a five-year exemption to the PGA Tour.
