How much will the champion of the Honda Classic win in 2022

We take a look at the purse and winners share for the Honda Classic, taking place in Palm Beach, Florida in 2022.

The Honda Classic at PGA National is a favorite stop for many players on the PGA Tour because they can sleep in their own beds. South Florida is a popular home for Tour pros for both taxation and weather purposes, but this event has a field not quite as strong as some we’ve seen in California the last several weeks.

Daniel Berger opens Sunday as the leader at -11. He holds a five-stroke lead on Shane Lowry, Sepp Straka, Kurt Kitayama, and Chris Kirk. Berger and Lowry are the final pair to hit the course on Sunday, teeing off at 1:35 p.m. ET.

The prize money drops from $12 million at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club last week to $8 million for the Honda Classic in Palm Beach. With The Arnold Palmer Classic at Bay Hill next week and The Players Championship right after, this is a good week for some of the best players on Tour to take a week off and get some rest.

For those that do choose to play, the standard 18% of the prize pool is available for a win. And since this is a full-field event the winner also receives all the usual Tour champion perks, including a full PGA Tour exemption through the 2024 FedEx Cup Playoffs, a spot in the 2022 Masters, the 2022 PGA Championship, and the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions.
