We take a look at the purse and winners share for the WM Phoenix Open, taking place in Scottsdale, Arizona in 2022.

The final round of the WM Phoenix Open has a star-studded leaderboard, but a rookie on top in Sahith Theegala chasing his first PGA Tour victory.

And while Theegala’s future as a Tour pro seems safe, taking home the lion’s share of the $8.2 million purse is just one potential prize he’ll receive if he’s able to walk away with the win.

The winner of this event, like all full-field PGA Tour events, also receives a Tour exemption through the end of the 2024 season, entrance into The Masters and the PGA Championship, and 500 FedEx Cup points for this season (which is basically enough to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs).

Winners also get a spot in and The Players Championship, the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawai’i, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Charles Schwab Challenge, Jack Nickalus’s Memorial Tournament, The Genesis Invitational, and the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

And all the above might end up being worth more than the seven-figure payday itself, which translates to 18% of the prize pool as is the usual PGA Tour event standard.
