The PGA Championship is being contested at a new course in 2017, and the stars of the game will be competing for more money than ever before.

Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C., hosts the event from Aug. 10-13, and for the first time since 2014 the total purse is increasing by $500,000 to a new total of $10.5 million. For comparison's sake, the purse at last year's PGA was $10 million, while the prize money at last month's British Open was $10.25 million.
