Arnold Palmer Invitational prize money

How much does each PGA Tour star take home from Bay Hill?

 

The Arnold Palmer Invitational is the next Signature Event on the PGA Tour schedule.

There is a $20 million prize purse up for grabs at Bay Hill Club this week, the majority of which was won by Kurt Kitayama in 2023.

The American won the prestigious tour title by one shot ahead of Rory McIlroy and Harris English.

The best players on the circuit are back for more this week as the season approaches The Players Championship and the Masters.

In 2024, the winner of the Arnold Palmer Invitational will pocket a cool $4 million, the same amount of money you win if you finish top of the leaderboard at a LIV Golf event.

There is a reduced field this week in Florida as it is a Signature Event, so only the top 50 after the cut will earn a return.

Let’s take a closer look at the Arnold Palmer Invitational purse…
