As the last chance to earn your way into the field at East Lake and the opportunity to win the FedEx Cup, the focus at the BMW Championship remains more about points than money. The winner at Medinah Country Club on Sunday will grab 2,000 points, and almost certainly jump into the top three on the FedEx Cup standings, if not nudge Brooks Koepka out of the No. 1 spot.

Said another way, however, the BMW winner will be trying to parlay his $1.665 million first-place prize into a possible $15 million windfall for claiming the big payout next week at the Tour Championship. (Indeed, you can’t get completely away from the language of money). The total prize money payout available at the BMW Championship is $9.25 million with everybody in the field taking home something given there’s no cut in the event being held outside Chicago.

Here’s how the prize money breaks down for the week. We’ll update this list at the end of the tournament to link names with the money they’ve won.
