Jon Rahm’s second-place finish in his title defense at the Mexico Open may have been disappointing, but his runner-up still adds to his record-breaking season.

Rahm collected $839,300 for coming up three shots short of Tony Finau, but that pushed his 2022-2023 season earnings total to $14,462,840. It may be April 30th, but that sets a new PGA Tour single-season official money record.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise given the PGA Tour created the Designated events this season with their $20 million purses — not to mention that Rahm has won four times already. But purse sizes had already been increasing over the past few seasons, with some events offering winners’ shares north of $2 million before this year.

Scottie Scheffler held the record briefly after he pulled in $14,046,910 last season before FedEx Cup bonus money (which are considered unofficial earnings). Before that, Jordan Spieth’s 2015 season, when he won two majors, earned him $12,030,465, a record that stood for seven years.

Interestingly enough, after winning the Players, which had the largest winner’s share of any golf tournament in PGA Tour history, Scheffler’s 2023 season is already No. 3 on the all-time list with $12,508,495.

And after another win in a Non-Designated event, Tony Finau’s $1,386,000 pushes his total earnings in non-Designated events this season to $3,277,775, the most of anyone in non-Designated events.
