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.
Here are the 13 players who have earned the most prize money at the PGA Championship since 1969. For players who rank among the leaders in money earned per tournament or money earned per shoot, their earnings and rank for those categories are also listed.
