2021 PGA Championship purse: Payout breakdown, winner’s share from this year’s record purse

phil mickelson gives thumbs up

Sunday at the PGA Championship leaves us on the cusp of history — and with plenty of dough on the line. Here’s everything you need to know about tournament money, including purse, payout and winner’s share.

PGA Championship final round preview

Phil Mickelson — yes, that Phil Mickelson — is 18 holes away from major championship history. Mickelson (seven under) wakes up Sunday in Kiawah with the 54-hole lead at the PGA Championship. If he’s able to hold on through the final 18 holes on Sunday, the 50-year-old would become the oldest major champion in golf history.

Standing firmly in Lefty’s way? None other than Brooks Koepka. The 2018 and 2019 PGA champion looks refreshed and renewed at Kiawah Island, playing without noticeable pain for the first time in at least 18 months, and it shows. He sits one stroke back of Phil after what he described as the “worst putting performance of his career” during Saturday’s third round and enters Sunday in the final pairing.

The stage is set for an all-time Sunday showdown between Mickelson and Koepka, with swirling winds expected to reach their apex as the two leaders make it into the Ocean Course’s dastardly closing stretch. Further back, a group headlined by Louis Oosthuizen (five under), Bryson DeChambeau (two under) and Gary Woodland (two under) looks to make a late Sunday charge.

2021 PGA Championship record purse

The 2021 PGA Championship total purse is a record-high this year, at $12 million. That’s a million more than last year’s $11 million purse and it’s now the second-highest payout in major golf, only behind the U.S. Open.

Last year, Collin Morikawa won $1.980 million, while this year’s winner is in line to win $2.160 million.

Below, find everything you need to know about the PGA’s $12 million purse, including payout information and winner’s share; you can catch the action beginning at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
