There’s no shortage of storylines heading into the 2023 PGA Championship. Will Scottie Scheffler and Jon Rahm continue their dominant play in the elevated events? Can Rory McIlroy snap out of his recent funk and win his first major in nine years? Will the talented group of LIV Golf players be as prevalent on the leaderboard as they were at the Masters last month?

All those questions and more will be answered at historic Oak Hill this weekend.

As for the eventual winner, he’ll go with $3,150,000 on Sunday afternoon. That’s a touch lower than the $3.24 million Rahm won at the Masters, but it could still be a life-changing payday for the champion at Oak Hill.
