The PGA Championship and The Players Championship made history in 2014, becoming the first tournaments to offer $10 million purses. The move gave the PGA Championship an identity as the highest-paying major in golf. The winner of the 2016 PGA Championship will again earn $1.8 million, a figure now matched by the other three majors and surpassed by The Players Championship, which has a $10.5 million prize pool and is golf's richest tournament.

The 2016 PGA Championship starts July 28 at Baltusrol Golf Club (Lower Course) in Springfield, N.J.
