Updated Purse and Prize Money Breakdown for the PGA’s The Players Championship 2018

The Total Payout

Last year there were no changes in the purse for the Players Championship, but here in 2018 the PGA coughed up another half-million, increasing the tournament’s total purse from $10.5 million to $11 million and equalling that of The Masters. That grand figure has adjusted all 50 payouts for the better, with the champion taking home a whopping $1.98 million this coming weekend. Second place is nearly as impressive, with the runner-up reeling in a payout of $1,188,000, once again making it one of the few PGA events where the second place finisher pulls in seven-figures. Not bad at all.
