PGA Championship 2018: How much prize money every player earned at the 2018 PGA

Brooks Koepka already scored the largest pay day in golf this year when he won the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in June and banked the $2.16 million first prize. Yet we get the feeling the 28-year-old former All-American at Florida State isn't going to be disappointing with only making $1.98 million on Sunday for his victory at the 100th PGA Championship, his third career major championship title and the third he's won in his last six major starts dating back to the 2017 U.S. Open. With the win, Koepka is just the fifth player to win the U.S. Open and PGA in the same calendar year, joining Gene Sarazen (192), Ben Hogan (1948), Jack Nicklaus (1980) and Tiger Woods (2000).

This year the PGA of America bumped up the overall prize money for its oldest event from $10.5 million to an $11 million purse. Suffice it to say, the folks at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis are more than happy for the association's largesse.

Curious how much everybody made for their efforts in the year's final men's major? Here's the breakdown for the prize money every player who made the cut earned this week at Bellerive.
