How much money does the last-placed golfer win in the PGA Championship? Luke Kerr-Dineen:
It doesn’t matter where you from or how old you are; if you make the cut, you get paid. If you don’t, you go home empty handed.If he beat another guy that day, you make more than that other guy that day. Players win only as much as they earn, and nothing more.
Ok, the first step is the cut. Make the cut, you make money. Fair enough. How much?
Last place this year will walk home with just $3,000 – barely enough to cover his expenses for the week. The last-placed player to make the cut will take home about $19,000.
The winner gets $1.89-million. Ties are complicated.
