2022 Sanderson Farms Championship Purse and Payouts: How Much Money Will the Winner Take Home?
The fall swing on the PGA Tour schedule isn’t exactly the most exciting time in professional golf. Most of the top players in the world take this time off to give themselves a full offseason. The players that do highlight these fields are normally rookies eager to get their PGA Tour careers started or little-known veterans looking to give themselves a head start in the FedEx Cup standings.
That’s the case at this week’s Sanderson Farms Championship, as Sam Burns entered the tournament as the favorite and the only player inside the top 40 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Despite the week field, there’s still a large purse to give out at The Country Club of Jackson on Sunday.
So, what is the purse for the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship, and how much money will the winner take home?
The winner of the Sanderson Farms Championship will take home $1.422 million
Because the fall events on the PGA Tour don’t attract the big names, they aren’t nearly as marketable as the majors or the events in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. In turn, the purses for fall tournaments aren’t as lucrative as the ones you’ll see once the calendar flips to 2023.
Still, nearly $8 million will be given out at The Country Club of Jackson this Sunday, and the winner will take home $1.422 million. This year’s winner will bank just a bit more than last year’s champion, as Burns won $1.26 million for his victory here in 2021.
The winner of the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship will be the only player in the field who takes home more than $1 million.
