The 2017 PGA Tour Champions Charles Schwab Cup bonus pool purse is set for $2.1 million, with the winner's share coming in at $1,000,000 -- coming in the form of an annuity for the winner of the PGA Tour Champions playoffs.
A total of 72 players qualify for the three-event Charles Schwab Cup playoff series, with 36 players qualifying for the season finale based on a total of 1 point for dollars earned in the regular season and 2 points for each dollar earned in the first two playoff events. The points are reset for the season finale to give all players a mathematical chance of winning the Charles Schwab Cup.
The top five players in the final standings are paid part of the $2.1 million bonus pool (all as annuities), based on the points standings at the conclusion of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, played at Phoenix Country Club in Phoenix, Ariz.
