Tour Championship money: Total purse, payout breakdown and winner’s share

The total purse for the Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta is $9 million, and the winner will bring home $1.62 million.

The field is only 30 players, but it wasn’t easy to get this far. Pros had to first qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs (the top 125) and then advance through the first three stages of the postseason, which finally whittled the field down to 30 for East Lake.

The runner-up of the Tour Championship receives $972,000, third place gets $621,000, fourth 432,000 and fifth 360,000. Winning on Sunday also goes a long way in claiming the FedEx Cup title and the $10 million bonus. Other players get hefty bonus checks as well.

Tiger Woods leads the Tour Championship after 54 holes, holding a three-stroke lead over Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose.
