BMW Championship Purse: How Much Prize Money Does the Winner Make?

keegan bradley

Getty Keegan Bradley has a chance to shake things up at The Players Championship.

FedEx Cup points were not the only thing on the line at the rain-delayed BMW Championship on Monday. Players are also competing for part of a $9 million purse. The winner of the tournament, which is the penultimate event in the FedEx Cup playoffs, takes home a $1.62 million paycheck. Second place receives $972,000 and third place receives $612,000.

Unlike most tournaments on the PGA Tour, there is a smaller field to split the $9 million prize pool with as the FedEx Cup playoffs have narrowed down the players eligible to compete over the past two weeks. The tournament, being held in Newton Square, Pennsylvania, at the Aronimink Golf Club, was scheduled to end Sunday, but was delayed until Monday because of rain. Several of the top golfers in the world are competing for the prize money and to put themselves in position for the final event of the FedEx Cup playoffs, the Tour Championship. The top 30 players in the FedEx Cup standings will take part in that tournament.

Keegan Bradley and Justin Rose were tied after 18 holes at 20-under, and Bradley won the tournament in a playoff. Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele were tied one shot back and Rory McIlroy finished in fifth at 18-under. Tiger Woods and Webb Simpson finished tied for sixth at 17-under.
