The PGA Tour continues to increase the money paid to its players throughout the year in response to potential threats to its future profitability. According to a memo obtained by No Laying Up from PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, the FedEx Cup, Player Impact Program, and a few tournaments will all undergo financial changes in 2022.

In 2022, PGA Tour players will receive 55 percent of the Tour's $1.52 billion in income, according to Monahan. The remaining 45 percent will be used for tournament-related costs, personnel costs, and TPC network costs.


Players will receive $838 million as a result of this. Eighty percent of that comes in the form of prize money, various incentive schemes, and Tour member privileges. The remaining 20% ($153 million) comes from marketing partners and corporate marketing partners (mainly clothes and equipment firms), and Monahan expects this to treble (!) over the next two years.
