How much money does the 2019 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational winner get?



The winner of the 2019 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational gets a lot of money, and the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational first-place payout is commensurate with winning a World Golf Championships event.

The 2019 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational purse is $10.25 million, an increase of $250,000 from the prior year. The PGA Tour pays 17 percent of the total purse to the winner, so the 2019 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational winner will earn $1,745,000 as the first-place payout.

In 2018, Justin Thomas won $1,700,000 as the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational winner's check from a $10.5 million purse, back when it was the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, at Firestone Country Club.

The WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational does not have the biggest purse in professional golf. That honor belongs to the US Open, along with The Players Championship, as each has a $12.5 million purse.

However, the tournament with the highest first-place payout in all of professional golf now belongs to the European Tour. The winner of the season-ending 2019 DP World Tour Championship on the European Tour will win $3,000,000, making it the biggest first-place payout in all of golf.
