The winner of the 2020 Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup playoffs will make a life-altering sum of money — even by golf’s gaudy requirements.

The richest purse within the sport is on the road this week on the East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta, with even the last-place finisher standing to make a whole lot of hundreds of dollars. The perks of being top-of-the-line golfers on the planet, proper?

Simply ask Rory McIlroy, who by profitable this occasion final season earned the single-largest payout within the historical past of the game — greater than each different golf main and playoff occasion mixed.

Under is the complete breakdown of the 2020 Tour Championship purse, together with winner’s share and the way it compares to earlier years and majors.

**MORE: Explaining the FedEx Cup format**

## Tour Championship purse 2020

The purse on the 2020 Tour Championship is **$60 million**, the identical as final season. That stated, final 12 months’s Tour Championship featured a major leap within the measurement of the purse and winner’s share: When Tiger Woods received the occasion in 2018, he received $1.62 million out of a **$9 million** purse.

The explanation for the elevated leap is a rule change the PGA Tour enacted in 2019: The FedEx Cup playoffs have been reformulated so the winner of the Tour Championship would robotically win the FedEx Cup playoffs — and the bonus cash that comes with it.

## How a lot cash does the winner get?

The primary-place finisher at this week’s event will make **$15 million**, identical as McIlroy made final 12 months. That is an absurd sum of money for 4 rounds of golf, and that quantity appears even crazier when in comparison with golf’s majors and different two FedEx Cup playoff occasions. Y

ou may win each of the opposite playoff occasions (The Northern Belief and BMW Championship, each at **$1.71 million**), the Masters (**$2.07 million**), PGA Championship (**$1.98 million**) and U.S. Open (**$2.25 million**), and nonetheless not have as excessive a payout because the Tour Championship: solely **$9.72 million**.
