How much will the winner of the Genesis Invitational win in 2022

We take a look at the purse and winners share for the Genesis Invitational, taking place in Los Angeles in 2022.

The Riviera Country Club plays host once again to the Genesis Invitational, and with 18 holes to play Joaquin Niemann is three shots clear of the field on his way to the biggest prize on the PGA Tour so far this year.

The Genesis Invitational puts up $12 million for its prize pool, which is the biggest cash prize available on the California swing of the PGA Tour. The winner still takes home the standard 18% for a victory, but even the worst player to survive to Saturday will head home with about $25,000 for their efforts.

And the cash is just one part of the equation, as the Genesis Invitational winner also gets a full PGA Tour exemption until the 2024 FedEx Cup Playoffs, plus spots in the 2022 Masters, 2022 PGA Championship, and the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions.
