Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2019 Wyndham Championship

News

Every week we can throw out a shocking statistic about the dramatic rise in the prize money payout on the PGA Tour. And while maybe that feels like a tired subject, we’ve got a number for that involves the Wyndham Championship that we think is worth noodling. Here goes …

The PGA Tour’s stop in Greensboro, N.C., has been around since 1938 and has become synonymous with its all-time greatest winner, Sam Snead. The legendary Hall of Fame golfer won this event a record eight times, including a win in 1965 when he was 52. That gave him the record for oldest winner in PGA Tour history, a mark he still holds. Snead made 34 overall starts in Greensboro, and in addition to his eight victories, he had three runner-up finishes and six third-place showings. In total, Snead had 23 top-10s in the tournament and never missed a cut.

OK, so what’s our amazing stat? Well, for all that success, Snead overall prize money earned in the event was … $59,051.98.

To put that in perspective, Snead ranks 375th on the tournament’s all-time money list before the tour dolls out $6.2 million more for this week’s event. Sunday’s winner grabs $1.116 million, or nearly 19 times as much as Snead earned his entire career at this event.

Additionally, anybody who finishes 24th or better on Sunday will earn more money than Snead won in his lifetime in Greensboro.

The current all-time prize money leader in Wyndham Championship history is Brandt Snedeker, having made $2,879.369 in 11 starts entering the week. He can be passed on Sunday, however, by Webb Simpson, who is third on the all-time money list at $2,545,268.33 and is in second place entering the final round (Snedeker is T-38).

OK, here’s the prize money payout for the entire field this week. We’ll fill in specific names after the end of the tournament to see who jumped past the Slammer’ on the all-time Wyndham Championship money list.
