In a year in which money has been among the dominant talking points in men’s professional golf—LIV Golf and the PGA Tour racing to see how many zeros they can toss at the end of prize money payouts to try and make players feel special—Rory McIlroy was playing for something more in the final round of the CJ Cup.

Pride has no price tag, just personal value.

Mind you, with a one-shot triumph over Kurt Kitayama on Sunday at Congaree Golf Club—the 10th time in 17 attempts that the 33-year-old Northern Irishman had converted a 54-hole lead into a win on the PGA Tour—McIlroy earned a handsome payday. The victory, his 23rd on tour, allowed him to claim the first-place prize money payout of $1.89 million from a $10.5 million overall purse handed out in Ridgeland, S.C.

But more important than the loot or defending his CJ Cup title from a year ago, McIlroy regained the title of No. 1 player in the Official World Golf Ranking, jumping past Scottie Scheffler to grab back the label he had held on eight previous occasions, most recently in July 2020.

McIlroy shot a final-round 67, with four birdies in a five-hole stretch on the back nine that allowed bogeys on the 17th an 18th not to change the final outcome. It was a victory in his first start on the PGA Tour in the new 2022-23 season, McIlroy becoming the first since Tiger Woods in 2008 to win the FedEx Cup and then come back with a win in tour start.

Here’s the prize money payout for every golfer in the field at Congaree. Come back shortly after the end of the tournament and we’ll update the list with names and individual payouts.

Tom Fazio has designed many compelling golf courses on sites that weren't great. But at Congaree, 30 minutes inland from Beaufort, S.C., Fazio at least had great material: sand, in the form of two deep sections of it separated by a lowcountry wetland area. The sand made it easy to scoop and shape long ridgelines, creating significant movement across an otherwise level property—and dozens of stately live oaks, carefully transplanted for effect—further outline the design. Finely edged Melbourne-style bunkers sweep up to the edges of fairways and against greens, catching shots that drift too far and leading to challenging hi-lo recovery situations. Congaree hosts the 2022 CJ Cup after making its debut as a tour venue for the previous year's Palmetto Championship, which replaced that year's Canadian Open.
