A lot can be said about PGA Tour star Rory McIlroy’s performance in 2023, but one thing is for sure: he made a whole lot of money. And McIlroy’s financial haul grew rapidly on Thursday, when it when it was announced that he had come out on top of the PGA Tour’s Player Impact Program.

For some background, the Player Impact Program was instituted by the PGA Tour back in 2021 to reward high-profile golfers with huge bonuses. The rankings are based on five categories: Internet Searches, Earned Media, TV Sponsor Exposure, General Population Awareness and Golf Fan Awareness.

In all, an incredible $100 million was doled out to the top-20 players, and McIlroy topped the list, earning a $15 million bonus.

Tiger Woods, who came in first the last two years, fell to second for a check worth $12 million.

Check out the full results below.

2023 PGA Tour Player Impact Program (PIP) Results

1. Rory McIlroy — $15 million
2. Tiger Woods — $12 million
3. Jon Rahm — $9 million
4. Jordan Spieth — $7.5 million
5. Scottie Scheffler — $6 million
6. Rickie Fowler — $5.5 million
7. Viktor Hovland — $5 million
8. Justin Thomas — $5 million
9. Tommy Fleetwood — $5 million
10. Max Homa — $5 million
11. Xander Schauffele — $3 million
12. Jason Day — $3 million
13. Tony Finau — $3 million
14. Collin Morikawa — $3 million
15. Matt Fitzpatrick — $3 million
16. Wyndham Clark — $2 million
17. Cameron Young — $2 million
18. Justin Rose — $2 million
19. Patrick Cantlay — $2 million
20. Brian Harman — $2 million

Amazingly, the $15 million bonus isn’t the only multi-million check McIlroy received this week. On Sunday, McIlroy officially won the DP World Tour’s season-long Race to Dubai, making nearly $2 million for his efforts.

That alone would be an on-course income any pro golfer could be happy with, but it doesn’t come close to representing all of McIlroy’s winnings this year. He also made just under $14 million in official PGA Tour money.
