2022 PGA Championship purse, prize money: Payout for Justin Thomas and each golfer from $15 million pool

History and a substantial $15 million purse were on the line at the 104th PGA Championship as action concluded at Southern Hills on Sunday in Tulsa, Oklahoma. World No. 9 Justin Thomas captured not only his second Wanamaker Trophy but also his second winning check in the PGA Championship, bringing home a cool $2.7 million for his come-from-behind effort.

While Thomas collected a substantial sum in his own right, players who finished inside the top 23 collected a six-figure payday, thus easing the pain of defeat. Second-place golfer Will Zalatoris, who lost a three-hole aggregate playoff to Thomas by a stroke, collected $1.6 million in his second runner-up finish at a major in his career.

Meanwhile, 54-hole leader Mito Pereira, who held his spot atop the leaderboard until the 72nd hole on Sunday, lost nearly $1.8 million with a double bogey on the 18th. He settled for a $870,000 third-place prize alongside Cameron Young.

Thomas’ win at Southern Hills matched Scottie Scheffler’s victory at 2022 Masters for what will be the second-biggest share of the season. Cameron Smith banked $3.6 million (out of a $20 million purse) for his victory at The Players Championship last year.

Let’s take a look at how much the payouts for the 2022 PGA Championship will be divided among the top 78 players who completed play this weekend.
