The 2024 Regions Tradition prize money payout is from the $2.6 million purse, with 78 professional players who complete two rounds at Greystone Golf and Country Club in Birmingham, Ala., earning PGA Tour Champions prize money and an official-money paycheck this week.

The winner's share of Regions Tradition prize pool is at $390,000, with the second-place finisher taking home $228,800. The Regions Tradition prize money payout breakdown shows a payout of 15 percent of the purse to the winner, and how much each PGA Tour Champions player earns is guaranteed down to the last-place player, which is $1,300 for 78th place.

The Regions Tradition field is headed by Steve Stricker, Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington and more.

This tournament started with 78 players, and a cut was not 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 2024 Regions Tradition from the correct 2024 Regions Tradition full-field payout is based on their finish.

Every player still in the field can improve their position in the final round of this 72-hole event, which is considered one of five majors on the PGA Tour Champions schedule.

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 390,000 Charles Schwab Cup points, as this is considered an official event on the PGA Tour Champions schedule with dollars converted to points.

There are no Official World Golf Ranking points on the line in PGA Tour Champions events.

While this event offers a significant payday, a win comes with the benefits that come with winning on the PGA Tour Champions. Winners of these events get better status and access on tour.
