2022 Wells Fargo Championship purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2022 Wells Fargo Championship purse is set for $9 million, with the winner's share coming in at $1,620,000 -- the standard 18 percent payout according to the PGA Tour's prize money distribution chart.

The Wells Fargo Championship field is headed by Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau, Abraham Ancer and more of the world's best players.

The 156-player field is the one-year one-off for Quail Hollow in Charlotte, which hosts the Presidents Cup this year instead of this event.

A cut is made after 36 holes to the top 65 players and ties for the final two rounds of the tournament. All players who finish four rounds of the tournament will earn money.

The event is played this year at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Potomac, Md.

This is the 29th PGA Tour-sanctioned event of the 2021-2022 PGA Tour schedule.
