Although there is a lot of money on the PGA Tour, Ryder Cup players are not paid.

There is no money at stake when Team USA takes on Team Europe in Italy for the 2023 Ryder Cup.

The PGA of America reportedly does give each player money to be donated to a charity of their choice, but no prize money is up for grabs or distributed.

The United States has Ryder Cup odds of -105 heading into the 2023 edition.
