Big PGA Championship Prize Await’s in 2024

The winner of the 2024 PGA Championship will be awarded the prestigious Wanamaker Trophy and a substantial winner’s check this Sunday at Valhalla Golf Club. The PGA of America has increased the purse for the championship by $1 million from the previous year, bringing the total prize pool to a record-breaking $18.5 million.

Major Payouts for Top Performers

The champion in Louisville will take home a whopping $3.3 million. Additionally, golfers who finish on the podium but miss out on the top spot will still receive significant rewards. Each player who finishes in the top 10 will earn at least $500,000, while those in the top 31 will receive a check for at least $100,000.

Comparisons to Other Major Events

These payouts are slightly lower than those at the 2024 Masters and the PGA Tour’s Signature Events, each boasting a $20 million purse. For instance, Scottie Scheffler won $3.6 million for his second Green Jacket at the Masters, and he even topped that with $4 million at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and $4.5 million at The Players Championship.

Rewards for All Participants

Not only will the weekend’s top performers leave Kentucky with substantial earnings, but even those who missed the cut will benefit. All players who make the 36-hole cut will receive $4,000 for their efforts, ensuring that everyone who participated takes home something for their trouble.

The 2024 PGA Championship promises to be a lucrative event for golfers, highlighting the immense rewards at stake in one of golf’s most prestigious tournaments.
