2024 PGA Championship: What was the total payout for Xander Schauffele, other top finishers?

The 2024 PGA Championship had everything golf fans could want. Xander Schauffele birdied the final hole at Valhalla to secure his first-ever major, defeating Bryson DeChambeau, who shot a 7-under 64 in the final round to finish 20-under for the weekend. Yet, even that was not enough to secure the win.

We also saw incredible outings from golfers like Sahith Theegal — who might have fallen out of contention on Sunday, but was a still a major factor heading into the final round — and Robert MacIntyre, who only had one top-ten finish all year coming into the PGA Championship, yet managed to secure a tie for eighth place. Wow! What a weekend.

Now that everything is behind us now though, the question on everyone’s mind is just how much Schauffele earned from this victory. In fact, what was the total payout for the golfers in attendance? Here’s everything to know about the full prize pool for the 2024 PGA Championship.

What was the total prize pool for the 2024 PGA Championship?

The total winnings dished out for the 2024 PGA Championship was $18.5 million, $1 million more than the payout was for the 2023 PGA Championship.

What were Xander Schauffele’s winnings?

Schauffele took home $3.3 million for winning the event, which is roughly 16% of the total prize money.

What were the payouts for each of the top-ten finishers?

  • 1st: $3,300,000
  • 2nd: $1,998,000
  • 3rd: $1,258,000
  • 4th: $888,000
  • 5th: $740,000
  • 6th: $660,580
  • 7th: $618,300
  • 8th: $577,790
  • 9th: $539,030
  • 10th: $502,040

Now an obvious question would be, “Well, four golfers tied for eighth place. How much does each of them take home?”

Good question. The answer is quite simple: Essentially, the four golfers (Scottie Scheffler, Robert MacIntyre, Justin Thomas, and Billy Horschel) will each take home the same amount, equal to the average payout for the 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th place finishers. In this instance, each golfer won $521,417.50.

Any player that missed the cut, or failed to submit a 72-hole score was paid $4,000.
