Players with most PGA Championship earnings

The 13 players who have won the most prize money at the PGA Championship

Tiger Woods hasn't made the cut at the PGA Championship since 2013 (and hasn't played since 2015 because of injury) but he still ranks first in career earnings at the PGA Championship by more than $1.5 million in prize money over second-place Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy, however, has earned more money per appearance in the PGA Championship and per shot at the PGA Championship than Tiger and every other golfer not named Justin Thomas. In three starts at the PGA Championship, Thomas has earned nearly $700,000 per tournament and almost $2,500 per shot, making him the highest-earning golfer at the major, shot-for-shot.
