The 2023 Genesis Invitational tees off on Thursday, February 16 from Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California. The Invitational is one of the PGA TOUR’s new elevated events, which means that the field brings together many of the top golfers in the world. Twenty-three of the 25 top-ranked players are part of the field, as well as 15-time major winner Tiger Woods.

Because it’s an elevated event, the purse for the event is significantly increased to $20 million. The winner will receive $3.6 million, the runner-up will get $2.18 million, and the third-place golfer wins $1.38 million.

Jon Rahm is rolling into the final round with a three shot lead on Max Home. Rahm sits at -15, Homa is -12, and the rest othe top five includes Keith Mitchell (-11), Patrick Cantlay (-10), and Gary Woodland (-9). Tiger Woods is tied for 26th place at -3.

But it’s not only a paycheck a player receives for winning the Genesis: There are 550 FedEx Cup points on offer, as well as 46 Official World Golf Ranking points as well. A win will also get the victor into the 2023 Masters and PGA Championship, as well as a full PGA TOUR exemption through the end of the 2025 season.

Also previous winners of the Genesis are the first exempted category for the Invitational event, so it can also serve as long-term exemption to the tour stop. 2019 Genesis winner J.B. Holmes took advantage this week, making the cut despite not having any PGA TOUR status at present.

Here’s the complete prize money breakdown for the 2023 Genesis Invitational.
