Brooks Koepka will take home a hefty $1.98 million in prize money for winning the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club. The final major tournament on this year’s schedule means one of the biggest purses in the sport, and a winner’s share topped only by the $2.16 million paid out at the 2018 U.S. Open.

Tiger Woods will receive $1.188 million for finishing in second place after his thrilling final-round 64 put him past Adam Scott. It’s the second time Woods has finished in the top 10 of a major tournament this year.

The $11 million purse for the PGA Championship represents the second-largest in golf, tied with the Masters and the Players Championship. The Open Championship offered a $10.5 million purse, while the U.S. Open led the pack with a record-setting $12 million purse.

Koepka, the winner of the last two U.S. Opens, entered Sunday atop the leaderboard at 12-under. He held off a surging Woods and an impressive showing from Scott to win his third major in the last two years.

This is the last PGA Championship to be held at the end of August. The PGA announced last year that the major tournament would be moving to May starting in 2019 when it’s held at Bethpage Black.

Here’s a look at the full purse for the 2018 PGA Championship. This list is subject to change based on tied scores.
