The CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges is just in its third year, but already its reputation proceeds it. Specifically, its status as a big-money event on the PGA Tour.

The total purse for the no-cut, limited-field event held at The Club at Nine Bridges on Jeju Island in South Korea is $9.75 million. That’s the largest prize money payout for any tournament on the PGA Tour that isn’t a major championship, a WGC or the Players. Not only did the winner on Sunday, Justin Thomas, grab more than $1 million ($1,755,000 to be exact), but so did the runner-up, Danny Lee ($1,053,000 to also be exact).

Below is the prize money payout for each place in the tournament. Next week at the inaugural Zozo Championship in Japan, the players will also be contending for a $9.75 million purse.
