The 2021 PGA Championship purse reached a record high this year, increasing by $1 million to $12 million — a million more than last year’s $11 million total and the second-highest purse in the game, behind the U.S. Open’s total, which was $12.5 million in 2020.

This year’s PGA champion will surpass the payout received by the 2020 champion, Collin Morikawa, by $180,000. Morikawa pocketed $1.98 million for his win at TPC Harding Park, and this year’s winner will receive a whopping $2.16 million at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. The runner-up will also easily clear seven figures, with a hefty payout of $1.296 million.

At the PGA, even if you miss the cut, you come away with something. You get $3,200 for completing 36 holes, regardless of what you shoot. And players who make the cut but WD are also given $3,200.

So how much did the rest of the players in the field come away with this year? You can find a complete list of the 2021 PGA Championship payout for each player below.
