The 2017-18 PGA Tour season concludes with the Tour Championship, which will also help determine the winner of FedExCup playoffs, and there is an absurd amount of prize money awaiting the winner(s).
The 2018 Tour Championship alone has a $9 million purse, and the winner will get a payout of more than $1.6 million. But that’s not all. The winner of the season-long FedExCup (i.e. the PGA Tour’s playoffs) will also win $10 million.
So, if the winner of the Tour Championship also claims enough points to win the FedExCup, then that golfer will haul in more than $11.6 million.
Here are the breakdowns of the huge prize money on the line in the PGA’s Tour Championship and FedExCup purses for 2018.
