The remainder of the professionals will receive cash prizes ranging downward from $36,900 depending on the scores. This increase comes relatively hot on the heels of the PGA Tour's announcement that it would be upping the prize money (opens in new tab) on offer this season from $367m to $427m. As part of that, an extra $5m was pumped into the Players Championship fund, making it the most lucrative event in golf with a total purse of $20m.

This led to some calls for the Major championships to boost their purses accordingly, with most hovering around the $12m mark. 

On Sunday, Scheffler (opens in new tab) would claim the Green Jacket, adding to his Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational and WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play successes, which have all come in the last two months.
