If you thought this year’s PGA Tour Designated events or LIV Golf Invitationals had big money, think again.

The FedEx Cup bonus pool was bumped up to a staggering $75 million this year meaning the winner of the Tour Championship will go home with a ridiculous $18 million payout.

While we can debate the semantics of the Tour Championship being the richest tournament in pro golf or not (technically the money is all from the FedEx Cup Bonus pool and not official earnings) that’s still a boatload of cash.

Heading into the final round, that $18 million is Viktor Hovland’s to lose as last week’s BMW Championship winner begins Sunday with a six-shot lead at 20 under.

However, Scottie Scheffler began last year’s final round at East Lake with a six-shot lead as well, only to cede it to Rory McIlroy.

Xander Schaufele is Hovland’s closest pursuer at 14 under. Schauffele’s record at East Lake continues to amaze, picking up a win in his first start in 2017 and never finishing outside the top 7 since. But Schaufele has not won the event since it switched to the staggered start format based on FedEx Cup standing.

But even a top-10 finish this week comes with a payday north of $1 million.

With that, here is the complete payout breakdown for the 2023 Tour Championship and FedEx Cup bonus pool. The total prize pool is $75 million
