The Players Championship may not be an official major, but it certainly pays like one.

A purse of $10.5 million makes the tournament at TPC Sawgrass the second-most lucrative in 2017 behind only the U.S. Open, which upped its prize pool to a record $12 million this year. The winner’s share of $1.89 million is also the third highest on Tour behind the Open (more than $2 million) and the Masters ($1.98 million).

Here’s a complete look at what all the top finishers will be taking home at the Players:
