Korn Ferry Tour purse payout percentages and distribution



The Korn Ferry Tour has a standard formula for payout percentages and distribution its purse and prize money for almost every event. If there's a cut where 65 or more players make the final round or rounds of the tournament, there's standard table of payout percentages and distribution.

The winner of a Korn Ferry Tour event gets 18 percent of the purse. Typically, the second place player gets 9 percent of the total purse (it was formerly 10.8 percent before a 2020 change to flatten the pay scale). Then it goes on like that, all the way down to 65th place, which gets 0.40 percent of the total purse.

There are a few situations where the Korn Ferry Tour doesn't follow its standard purse payout and distribution formula.
