2021 PGA Championship prize money, purse: Payouts, winnings for each golfer from $12 million pool

There will be a lot on the line this weekend at the 2021 PGA Championship, and while a cash prize is not at the top of the list for most of the best golfers in the world, there’s still a significant sum available to be claimed over the final 18 holes at Kiawah Island in South Carolina.

The 2021 PGA Championship purse has been set at a record $12 million. The champion’s prize $2.16 million, and the runner-up fairs quite well with $1.3 million for finishing in second place. It’s the first time the PGA Championship winner has earned more than $2 million from the purse, which passed the Masters this year for the second-largest in the major championship rotation. The U.S. Open remains the biggest purse at the moment with $12.5 million being distributed to the competitors last year and $2.25 million going to the winner Bryson DeChambeau. 

As of right now, the race for that winners payout and the six-figure checks reserved for the top 26 names on the leaderboard is wide open. Phil Mickelson and Louis Ooshtuizen hold the 36-hole lead in the clubhouse at 5 under but more than a dozen golfers are within four strokes of that lead, including major winners Brooks Koepka (-4), Hideki Matsuyama (-4), Gary Woodland (-2) and Bryson DeChambeau (-2). 

Moving day will live up to its reputation as all of the leaders face afternoon winds during Saturday’s third round, as the ones who can avoid a big number will emerge as the favorites heading into the final round on Sunday. 

 Here’s a look at all the prize money and payouts for the 103rd PGA Championship.
