2016 FedEx St. Jude Classic Prize Money Breakdown

The Total Payout


There is money to be made at TPC Southwind. The FedEx St. Jude Classic boasts a total purse of $6.2 million, with a hefty $1.116 million of that prize going to the eventual winner. That’s excellent news for the 156-man field considering the total payout last year amounted to only $6 million.

To put into perspective the difference in prize money, defending champion Fabian Gomez earned $1.08 million in this golf event last year. That’s $36,000 less than the amount the St. Jude Classic champion will receive this year. Finishing second in this tournament ain’t bad either with the runner-up receiving a cash payout of $670,000. On the other end of the table, the 70th or so golfer to make the cut this week will earn around $12,400.
