PAYDAY! 2023 John Deere Classic, U.S. Women’s Open, & LIV Golf London Prize Money Payout

I thought it’d be interesting to drop this weekend’s top professional golf earners into a single table to see where the big money was won, but most importantly where it was earned. 

Key takeaways: 

  • Seeing the $2M next to Corpuz’s name is awesome for women’s golf. Not only did she earn every penny, but that sum shows the commitment that the USGA has thrust onto professional women’s golf. And how about Pebble this week? Glorious. Kudos for the USGA for hosting the event on one of golf’s greatest gems.
  • Cutting a $4M check for Cam Smith to win a tourney that literally no one watched or cared about is bizarre. If LIV continues to live in any form after the PGA/PIF merger takes effect in the future, hopefully something is done to make the competition more compelling. I doubt it ever turns that corner, but right now, the charade isn’t working for any fans of golf.
  • Seeing the $1.3M next to Straka’s name makes sense. Arguably the smallest and least compelling PGA event of the regular season (excluding a few of the fall events), the field just doesn’t warrant a bigger purse 
  • My kids are going to start practicing golf more, because this is all crazy money! 

Combined Table from Sunday’s Payouts:

Cameron Smith (LIV) – $4M

Allisen Corpuz (US Women’s Open) – $2M

Marc Leishman/Patrick Reed (LIV) – $1.9M

Sepp Straka (John Deere) – $1.3M

Louis Oosthuizen (LIV) – $1M

Jiyia Shin/Charley Hall – (US Women’s Open) – $969k
