Wyndham Championship 2022 Purse: Payout and Prize Money Breakdown

The PGA Tour is currently in North Carolina as the Wyndham Championship is being contested at the Sedgefield Country Club. Here, you will find all the necessary information regarding the Wyndham Championship 2022 purse, payout, and prize Money Breakdown.

Wyndham Championship 2022 is already underway, having started on the 4th of August. The 4-day event is close to its conclusion with only the final round remaining to be played. 

The 2022 Wyndham Championship is the last regular season golf event on the PGA Tour schedule before the start of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. While many top players have opted to withdraw from the tournament, the event is still fielding a solid player field.

156 golfers have arrived in Greensboro, North Carolina to participate in this year’s edition. Some top players among them are; Will Zalatoris, Billy Horschel, Sungjae Im, Shane Lowry, etc. Kevin Kisner, who won the 2021 edition of the Wyndham Championship is also here to defend his title. 

All the top-seeded players have their eyes set on the massive prize pool of $7,300,000. However, this tournament has extra significance as many players’ tour standings are dependent on how they perform in this event.

Golfers like Callum Tarren, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day, and Webb Simpson are hovering just outside the top 125. A decent performance in this event will help them reach the top 125 and that in turn will make them eligible to play next week in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Wyndham Championship 2022 Purse and Payout:

The PGA announced the Wyndham Championship 2022 Purse to be 7.3 million US dollars, with the winner receiving $1,314,000. The winner’s share is the standard 18% of the overall purse in accordance with the PGA Tour’s prize money distribution chart.

In the 2021 PGA Tour Season, Wyndham championship prize money was set at $6,400,000, while the winner, Kevin Kisner, bagged $1,152,000 for himself.

As evident, there has been a significant bump in purse and payout. Compared to last year, the Wyndham Championship 2022 Purse increased by $900,000. The winner of the tournament will also get an extra $162,000.

The 2nd and the 3rd placed finisher will be awarded a handsome sum of $795,700 and $503,700 respectively. To be eligible for a share of the prize money, a player needs to make the 36-hole cut placing inside the top 65.

Along with the lucrative prize money, there are some extra benefits on the line as well. The winner of the event will acquire 500 FedEx Cup points in addition to 42 Official World Golf Ranking points.
