Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2019 Zurich Classic of New Orleans


The team, the team, the team! It’s the mantra of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, where the tournament’s identity as the lone regular-season team competition on the PGA Tour gives it a cache all its own. Arguably the only drawback of the event is that players don’t get any World Ranking points. They do, however, received FedEx Cup points as well as cold hard cash.

The overall purse for this week is $7.3 million, and the prize money breakdown works similarly to other PGA Tour events. For the first-place team, you add the money an individual champion would make ($1.314 million) to the money the second-place finisher would receive ($788,400), then divide by two to get the amount that each player on the winning team receives ($1.051 million). Continue to do that throughout the field and that’s how much each team earns.

What’s interesting about this is that the distribution of money in the event skews more toward the top of the leader board than a regular individual event. Here’s how much money particular finishes would get you if it was an individual event with a $7.3 million purse versus how much a team finish gets you:

In other words, it pays EVEN MORE to finish strong at the Zurich Classic.

Here’s how much prize money every golfer who made the cut earned this week at TPC Louisiana (all money is per player).
