The golfer who takes home the Wanamaker Trophy as the winner of the PGA Championship will again take advantage of the increased payouts of the tour's major tournaments.

The purse for this year's PGA Championship at Southern Hills Golf Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is $15 million, a tournament record, up $3 million from 2021.

The winner will take home $2.7 million.

Last year's champion, Phil Mickelson, received $2.16 million for his historic win when he became the oldest men’s major champion.

The 2022 Masters also paid out $15 million, with Scottie Scheffler taking home the Green Jacket and a cool $2.7 million.

The overall payout record was for 2022 The Players Championship in March, which had a purse of $20 million. Cameron Smith's one-shot victory earned him $3.6 million.
