Most weeks, players who miss the cut on the PGA Tour do not get paid.

There are some exceptions, including majors, but for the most part, if a player misses the cut at a PGA Tour event, he does not get paid for that week.

In addition, there are several no-cut events where all players play four rounds and get paid.

A typical PGA Tour event is reduced to the top 65 players and ties following the second round.

Do Caddies Get Paid if the Player Misses the Cut?

Yes, caddies still get paid even if their player misses the cut.

Typically, caddies and their players agree on their base pay for the week.

If a player does earn a check, caddies receive between 8-10%.
