2022 Travelers Championship money: Purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2022 Travelers Championship prize money payout is from the $8.3 million purse, with 71 professional players who complete four rounds at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., earning an official-money paycheck this week.

The winner's share of Travelers Championship prize pool is at $1,494,000, with the second-place finisher taking home $904,700. The Travelers Championship prize money payout breakdown shows a payout of 18 percent of the purse to the winner, and how much each PGA Tour player earns is guaranteed down to the last-place player, who gets $16,849.

The Travelers Championship field is headed by Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele, Rory McIlroy, Sam Burns and more.

This tournament started with 156 players, and a cut was made this week after two rounds. Every professional player in the field is paid for completing the event, but how much each player is paid at the 2022 Travelers Championship from the correct 2022 Travelers Championship full-field payout is based on their finish.

The 36-hole cut was made to the top 65 players and ties, and those 71 players have an opportunity to move up the leaderboard in the final round.

The 2022 Travelers Championship prize money payout is only true after the PGA Tour cut is made, with the PGA Tour adding money to the purse if more than 65 professionals make the cut to ensure all players are paid.

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

What else is on the line

Beyond money, there are important points, perks and benefits on the line for the field -- in particular, the tournament winner.

The winner of this event will get 500 FedEx Cup points, as this is considered an official event on the PGA Tour schedule.

Additionally, there are 54 Official World Golf Ranking points on the line for the winner.

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, a 10-year Travelers Championship exemptions, five years of berths into the other three majors and The Players, and entry into the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions.
