It's not the most prestigious or the greatest tournament in the world but it is the most lucrative (well, it's tied for the most lucrative).
The Players Championship has yielded $1.71 million to its winner each of the last six years and was bumped from a purse of $9.5 million overall to the first eight-figure purse in PGA Tour history at $10 million this season.
The winner will get $1.8 million.
PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem likes it like that.
"For years and years, The Players Championship has been the No. 1 purse in golf. We like that designation," Finchem said in the fall.
Here's a look at the five biggest purses in golf:
T1. Players Championship: $10 million
T1. PGA Championship: $10 million
T3. Match Play Championship: $9 million
T3. Cadillac Championship: $9 million
T3. Bridgestone Invitational: $9 million
All the majors were played with $8 million purses in 2013 and the Masters was at the same spot this year. Presumably both Opens will be at the $8 million mark, too.
