2019 PGA Championship prize money, purse: Payouts, winnings for each golfer from $11 million pool

In winning the 101st PGA Championship in historic fashion on Sunday, Brooks Koepka is the recipient of nearly $2 million in winnings. Koepka is set to receive $1.98 million in winnings from the $11 million total purse for second major championship of this season. Both numbers -- the total for the winner and the total purse -- are the same from last year's PGA Championship, also won by Koepka, who has become the first golfer in history to simultaneously hold consecutive titles at two separate majors (U.S. Open). 

While Koepka was on his way to a second-straight PGA Championship and fourth major win, the rest of the field was competing for the highest possible placement on the leaderboard -- to result in the highest possible payout. Just a few strokes across the tournament are the difference of hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention the exemptions and future tournament invitations that come with a notable finish on the leaderboard.

Let's take a look at how the prize money breaks down for the 101st PGA Championship. Golfers that tie for a place will split an average of the combined winnings of their respective spots on the leaderboard.
