  • The Players Championship has the biggest purse of the season ($25 million).
  • The winner's share for that event is $4.5 million.

There’s a lot of money up for grabs on the PGA Tour during the 2022-23 season — over $500 million, in fact.

There are 47 official PGA Tour tournaments, all with different prize money. With the new designated events, a number of tournaments will have purses of at least $15 million.

The Tour Championship technically has the biggest purse ($70 million) and winner’s share ($17 million), but that represents the final event of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

The event doesn’t have its own purse and winner’s share, rather paying out players for their performance that week combined with the rest of the season.

What Is the Biggest Purse for the 2022-23 PGA Tour Season?

The biggest purse for the 2022-23 PGA Tour season is $25 million at The Players Championship. It’s played March 9-12 at TPC Sawgrass.

What Is the Biggest Winner’s Share for the 2022-23 PGA Tour Season?

The biggest winner’s share for the 2022-23 PGA Tour season is $4.5 million at The Players Championship. It’s played March 9-12 at TPC Sawgrass.
