2020 The American Express money: Purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2020 The American Express purse is set for $6.7 million, with 74 professional players who complete four rounds at PGA West and La Quinta Country Club in Palm Springs, Calif, earning a paycheck this week.

The winner's share of the The American Express prize pool is at $1,206,000, with the second-place finisher taking home $730,300.

The American Express field is headed by Scottie Scheffler, Matthew Wolff, Tony Finau and more.

This tournament started with 156 players, cut down to the players who were at 9-under 207 or better through three rounds, after playing each course in the rotation: PGA West Stadium and Nicklaus Tournament Courses, as well La Quinta Country Club.

With the new PGA Tour cut rule down to the top 65 and ties, no players are subject to the PGA Tour's secondary cut any longer.

Additionally, there are 40 big Official World Golf Ranking points on the line, as the field strength is weaker than the first two events of the year.

While this event offers a significant payday, a win comes with the benefits that come with winning on the PGA Tour. Winners of these events get a two-plus season exemption on the PGA Tour, berths into the Masters, the Sentry Tournament of Champions, The Players Championship and the PGA Championship.
