Golf is in a good place with purses up $100 million overall from 2021 (totaling $1.5 billion in 2022) and there’s some real parity on the PGA Tour.

This makes for some tough calls for golf betting each week. But at the same time, it makes for some exciting weekends with several tournaments coming down to the back nine on Sunday. 

Some highlights for the 2022 season include the Players Championship in March, Masters in April, PGA Championship in May, US Open in June, British Open in July, FedEx Cup playoffs in August, and the Presidents Cup in September. 

Be sure to check out the BetMGM online sportsbook for the most up-to-date golf odds.

Below is a running list of the winner’s share and purse breakdown for every tournament in 2022. 

Wells Fargo Championship Payouts

Winner: Max Homa

With Quail Hollow hosting the Presidents Cup later this year, the event shifted to TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm. The week featured rainy and cool conditions for three of the four days, which kept scoring down. Max Homa ended up by winning the event with a score of 8-under par.

For Homa, it was his second PGA Tour win of the season and fourth top 10 in just 15 starts.

Rahm was a heavy pre-tournament favorite and the 27-year-old led the event from start to finish en route to his seventh career win on the PGA Tour. He finished at 17-under, which was one shot better than three other players.

His opening round 64 was the key to victory, but he played solid golf the other three days, firing rounds of 66, 68 and 69.
