PURSE: Players Championship winner will bring home a record payday

How much money does the winner of the Players Championship bring home? The exact same as Patrick Reed did for winning the Masters. Not a bad payday.

First place for winning the Players at TPC Sawgrass is $1.98 million, but even the runner-up cashes a check of $1.188 million.

This year’s purse was increased to a tournament-record $11 million following last year’s $10.5 million total. 2017 winner Si Woo Kim and 2016 champ Jason Day both brought home first-place checks of $1.890 million the past two years.
