The total prize money payout at the Bermuda Championship was low by PGA Tour standards—$4 million—with winner Brian Gay earning “only” $720,000. But given the stage of the career the new champion finds himself in, seven years removed from his last PGA Tour win and two years away from playing on the PGA Tour Champions, the stakes were hardly small change.

Gay, who turns 49 in December, has made $22 million in his tour career, which dates back to 1999. But since picking up the fourth of his now five career victories, the 2013 Humana Challenge, Gay has dealt with injuries and flirted with falling outside the top 125 on the FedEx Cup points race.

Gay earned just $702,647 in the 2019-’20 tour season while playing in 23 events. And save for the 2017-’18 season, when he had six top 10s that helped him earn $2.1 million, Gay hasn’t had a payday bigger than $256,000 when he teamed with Rory Sabbatini for a third-place finish at the 2019 Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Mind you, it’s likely the other perks of winning that Gay will surely savor even more than his prize money. It locks up a PGA Tour card through 2022, allowing him to cruise into senior golf at his own pace. With the victory, Clark also gets a spot in next year’s Masters (he hasn’t played at Augusta since 2013, and played in just three majors since 2013), PGA Championship and Players Championship, along with the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Here is the prize money payout for every golfer who made the cut in Bermuda.
