How much will the winner of the Wells Fargo Championship win in 2022

We take a look at the purse and winners share for the Wells Fargo Championship, taking place in Potomac, MD in 2022.

After 54 holes of the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship, Keegan Bradley at -8 holds a two-shot lead over Max Homa as we come to the final day of play at TPC Potomac in Maryland. But for the 65 players exactly that made the weekend, there is still plenty to be decided heading into Sunday’s final round.

The purse for this PGA Tour stop increases to a record $9 million this season, along with the new course being used that replaces venerable Quail Hollow. It’s an increase from the $8.1 million on offer last year, and the standard 18% check for the winner now comes to $1,620,000.

That’s in addition to the usual bag of goodies that come with being a winner on the PGA Tour: A full tour exemption through the end of the 2024 season and a spot in the Sentry Tournament of Champions next January in Hawai’i are terrific, but there’s a more immediate major concern for any potential winner as well.

This is the next-to-last chance to qualify for the 2022 PGA Championship at Southern Hills in just 11 days, as the Byron Nelson next week is the last potential ticket. But the Wells Fargo winner can also start planning a trip down Magnolia Lane in 2023 as well, as they’ll receive a Masters invite next year too.
