PGA Championship 2023 purse, payout breakdown: How much prize money does the winner make?

There was a lot more on the line than bragging rights at the 2023 PGA Championship

The winner of this year’s second major championship — which was held at Oak Hill Country Club outside Rochester, N.Y. — would not only take home the coveted Wanamaker Trophy, but also several million dollars. But not only the first-place golfer would come away with a massive payday: Each of the first-, second- and third-place finishers would earn over a million dollars.

The biggest winner from this year’s event was Brooks Koepka, who won the tournament for a third time. He held off Scottie Scheffler and Viktor Hovland for the victory and the top prize.
