What is the prize money for the 2024 PGA Championship?

How much does the winner take home from the PGA Championship?

 

The first thought that will come to the mind of the 2024 PGA Championship winner is: When can I lift the Rodman Wanamaker Trophy?

One of the most prestigious pieces of crystal in the game, the Wanamaker trophy has been won by the greats, and Brooks Koepka was looking to defend his title at Valhalla this year.

But as well as this rather oversized lump of silverware, Koepka also played for the lion’s share of the $18,500,000 prize purse on offer in Louisville, Kentucky, which is $1 million more than last year when the championship was played at Oak Hill.

This means Xander Schauffele will receive $3,300,000, less than the $3,600,000 that Scottie Scheffler won at the Masters and the RBC Heritage, a PGA Tour Signature Event.

The prize money at the PGA Championship has not always grown year on year. The total purse has increased in 2024, but it was untouched in 2020 when Collin Morikawa won his first major title at Harding Park.
