PGA Tour players do not get a yearly salary. But things did change in the 2022-23 season.

Starting that season, exempt players will now receive $500,000 against earnings. It is not a salary but instead a base level.

Exempt PGA Tour players will receive $500,000 (rookies can claim it up front), and they only start to collect prize money when they earn more than that $500,000 base. If they do not reach $500,000, they do not need to pay anything back.
