The total bonus pool for the 2022 FedEx Cup Playoffs is $75 million, and a whopping $18 million of that will go to the winner of this week’s Tour Championship. But even for those who don’t take home the Tour’s season-long crown, things in Atlanta will still be pretty sweet.

Second place is in line for $6.5 million while third takes home a cool $5 million. In fact, every player in the top 10 will receive a seven-figure check. And even if you go down to the bottom of the leaderboard, there’s not likely to be many frowning faces as last place in the field still earns $500,000. Not too shabby for a week on the golf course.
