The winner of the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions gets a lot of money, and the Sentry Tournament of Champions first-place payout is commensurate with winning on the PGA Tour.

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 2022 DP World Tour Championship on the European Tour will win $3,000,000, making it the biggest first-place payout in all of golf.
