pga tour money leaders

Here is every PGA Tour money leader since 2000…

Ever wondered who have finished highest on the PGA Tour Money list? Well, here you have it…

 

Prize money is a shift-shaping concept in professional golf and this has been made abundantly clear in the last two years.

While the PGA Tour and LIV Golf tussle for financial supremacy, they are still yet to strike a deal by which both parties can mutually benefit.

The money list is a well-established item, though, since the PGA Tour’s inception and has been historically dominated by the game’s best players.

We have looked back to the start of the millennium when a certain young American was at the peak of his powers.

We’ve not included the huge bonuses that come after the FedEx Cup Playoffs – we want just the raw numbers.

But which players enjoyed great seasons that aren’t called Tiger Woods? Who are the PGA Tour’s historical money list leaders? Here they are:
