BMW PGA Championship 2022 Purse: Payout and Prize Money Breakdown

As the 2022 BMW PGA Championship has just come to an end following 4-days of exciting golf, let us find out the BMW PGA Championship 2022 Purse, payout, and prize money breakdown.

Established in 1955, it is one of the most reputed tournaments of the DP World Tour. This year marked the 68th edition of this professional men’s tournament. The event took place from Sept 8 to Sept 11 at the Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, Surrey, England.

The BMW PGA Championship has always appealed to the leading golf players of the world due to its prestige, along with the lucrative prize money that it offers. In 2022, a very strong player field teed it off at the Wentworth Golf Course. The 144-player field was led by Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, and Matt Fitzpatrick.

However, world no. 23, Shane Lowry emerged victorious after the conclusion of round 4 ahead of the three top 10 players, including Rory McIlroy. We will now take you through the details of the payouts and prize money that Shane Lowry and his fellow golfers will receive for their performances at the event.

BMW PGA Championship 2022 Purse:

The BMW PGA Championship 2022 Purse is set to be $8 million. The winner of the tournament, Shane Lowry, will receive $1,333,330 for his spectacular performance at the event. His share makes up the standard 16.67 percent of the total payout in accordance with the European Tour’s prize money distribution chart.

Compared to the previous edition, no changes have been made to the purse and payouts. The 2021 BMW PGA Championship offered the same purse of $8 million and the winner of that tournament, Billy Horschel, took home the same amount of prize money ($1.33 million).

Not every participant is eligible for a share of the massive purse. This is a 36-hole cut tournament and only the top 65 earned themselves a payout. The runner-up, Rory McIlroy, is set to acquire $888,880 for placing 2nd, while the 65th placed golfer will get $18,400 for making the cut.

There are added incentives to win the event. Shane Lowry will improve his position in the world ranking, thanks to the approximate 38 Official World Golf Ranking points awarded for winning the event. He will also get DP World Tour 1,335 points, crucial to placing in the top 5 of the Race-to-Dubai standings.
