PGA Tour PaydayAugust 29, 2018

Here's everyone who has earned more than $1 million on the PGA Tour this season (and the number will amaze you)

Thanks to Brooks Koepka's performance at Shinnecock Hills, Curtis Strange is no longer the answer to one of golf's more wonky questions: Who was the last player to win back-to-back U.S. Open titles? Yet Strange will forever be the solution to another piece of golf trivia: Who was the first golfer to earn $1 million in a single season on the PGA Tour.

Thirty years ago this coming November, the World Golf Hall of Famer won the season-ending Nabisco Championship in a Monday playoff over Tom Kite at Pebble Beach, earning $360,000 and pushing his year-long haul to $1,147,644. "I guess the first one to do it is the one everybody will talk about," Strange said at the time. "But a couple of years from now, four or five guys will be doing it. It's kind of like Arnold Palmer becoming the first player to win $1 million in a career [in 1968]. Now there are 40 or 50 who've done it."

Oh, how clairvoyant Strange proved to be. Fast forward to 2018 and through last week's Northern Trust, the number of golfers who have cracked the $1 million in this latest PGA Tour season (official money) is an impressive 114, which is believed to be an all-time high. Indeed, every golfer in the field at this week's Dell Technologies Championship is on this list.

The number of season-long millionaires is up from 102 during the 2016-'17 and 107 from 2015-'16.

As for the number of golfers who have earned at least $1 million in PGA Tour events during their careers, well that number is now at 556 and counting. Sam Ryder became the latest this past weekend at Ridgewood Country Club, taking home $59,850 for his T-28 finish. He didn't earn enough FedEx Cup points to move on to the season's second playoff event, but his cash reward pushed him to $1,046,166 in winnings on tour.

Makes you wish you had put a few more hours on the range when you were a teenager, now, doesn't it?
