The Total Payout
There is money to be made in Bay Hill. The Arnold Palmer Invitational boasts a total purse of $8.7 million, making it the richest PGA Tour event this side of the majors, The Players Championship and World Golf Championships. That’s excellent news for this week’s field considering the total payout last year amounted to only $6.3 million. To put into perspective the difference in winnings, defending champion Jason Day earned $1.134 million in prize money last year. That’s $432,000 less than the amount the Arnold Palmer champion will receive this year. Finishing second in this tournament ain’t bad either with the runner-up receiving a payout of $939,600. On the other end of the leaderboard, the 70th or so golfer to make the cut this week will take home around $17,400.
