2020 Tour Championship prize money, FedEx Cup payout: How the $45 million purse will be split at East Lake

The Tour Championship feels separate from the rest of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and in some ways, it stands out that way. The amount of money at stake — $45 million split between 30 golfers — dwarfs every other prize pool in golf, and while winning that trophy is prestigious, capturing the $15 million that comes with it can be life-changing for several golfers in this field.

Last year, in the first iteration of these playoffs, Rory McIlroy took home the first $15 million first prize (it was previously $10 million). This year, Dustin Johnson is the clear favorite with a five-stroke lead entering Monday’s final round. Getting second isn’t bad, either, as the runner-up will net $5 million. Third place gets $4 million and so on down the list.

Even if you go out and shoot 90 four days in a row, you still take home nearly $400,000, which is $195,000 more than the bonus you get if you finished one spot out of the Tour Championship by coming in 31st place in the FedEx Cup standings after the BMW Championship last week.
