The PGA Tour was prompted to reassess its strategies upon LIV’s aggressive player signings, which eventually led to discussions with the PIF- Public Investment Fund. With a whopping 123 players earning beyond $1M in the ’23 season, it raises questions about potential growth in future prize pools.
In the recent golf season, Scottie Scheffler took the spotlight by participating in 23 events and bagging an impressive $21 million. His season included 17 top tens and two wins. Following closely, John Rahm bagged in over $16.5 million. Viktor Hovland wasn’t far behind, amassing $14.1 million.
Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy stood at with $13.9 million, and Wyndham Clark rounded off the top five earners with $10.7 million. Interestingly, these numbers don’t factor in the hefty $75 million from the FedEx Cup bonus, awarded post the Tour Championship.
A special mention goes to Viktor Hovland, who, after a triumphant first-place finish, pocketed a remarkable $18 million check in Atlanta. With these earnings coupled with off-field endorsements, it’s evident that these golfers are at the top of their game, both on and off the course.

And whether you get a dollar out of it or 10 million dollars out of it, a win’s a win.” But the backdrop has transformed with LIV Golf’s emergence.
