The FedEx Cup Playoffs bonuses were designed to reward the PGA Tour’s top players for a full season of achievement, and one look at the Tour Championship payout structure makes it clear just how lucrative it is to make it to the Tour’s top 30.

Take Sahith Theegala, for instance.

‘The fact that I’m even on the PGA Tour is pretty absurd’: Pro opens up after making Tour Championship
By: Jack Hirsh

The 24-year-old PGA Tour rookie had an incredible first season on Tour. No wins, but enough close calls and top 10s to earn his way into the Tour Championship. Even a 28th-place (next to last) finish on Sunday will garner $520,000 (Will Zalatoris will claim the $500,000 30th-plaze prize after an injury forced him to withdraw from the BMW and Tour Championships) — that’s a tidy 16 percent of his current season-earnings total of $3.12 million.

While that pales in comparison to Rory McIlroy’s $18 million that you were reminded about so often on the broadcast, it’s no chump change.

And then, of course, there’s Scottie Scheffler. The FedEx Cup’s No. 1 seed has already banked a record-breaking sum of earnings this year, with a whopping $14.04 million. While he came up short on Sunday, he and Sungjae Im split the second and third-place bonuses for a cool $5.75 million.

And it’s not too bad for the rest of the field too as every player who finishes in the top 10 will walk away with seven figures. Pretty nice haul!
