PGA Championship 2022 Winner Prize Money And Full Purse Payout Breakdown

This Sunday, Justin Thomas won the 2022 PGA Championship, the second major championship of his career, know the purse and prize money

Unfortunately, Mito Pereira’s awful implosion will be remembered more than Justin Thomas’ win. Pereira was at the 18th tee in the final round of the US PGA Championship, poised to make history. There has never been a big winner from Chile. There still hasn’t been one; Pereira, who needed a par to win, cut a huffy drive into a drainage ditch.

The shot would have shocked an 18-handicap golfer. Pereira’s double-bogey six did not even qualify him for a playoff. This occurred after Thomas and Will Zalatoris had tied at five-under-par. This tournament was the slowest to heat up, but the high drama was well worth the wait.

Thomas is a big star in golf. Despite having burst into the limelight a few years ago with 15 PGA Tour victories, including the 2017 PGA Championship, he has not won a tournament since the Players Championship in March 2021. However, in recent months, he has shown signs of reverting to his former self.


He finished tied for seventh at the Masters earlier this year and came into the tournament as one of the favourites. Rear three-under-par rounds on Thursday and Friday propelled him to the top of the rankings, but a four-over-par performance in difficult conditions on Saturday derailed his championship bid. But he returned with fury on championship Sunday.

He blasted a stunning three-under 67 once more to put himself in contention at five-under for the tournament. When he concluded his round, he was still one shot behind leader Mito Pereira. Pereira, though, met with misfortune on the final hole. The Chilean was leading by a stroke when he put his ball into the water and finished with a double-bogey at four-under.

That disastrous blunder sent the two Americans into a three-hole playoff. And they fought under the low Oklahoma sun. This couldn’t have turned out better for both on the opening playoff hole, the par-five 13th. Both carded birdies after some magnificent iron strokes and good putts.


“It was good, and it placed a little more pressure on Will (Zalatoris). I enjoy playing the 17th hole in PGA Championships, and I’d like to continue doing so ” he stated.

Thomas was up by one shot.

And on the par-four 18th hole, the last playoff hole, some cool and composed golf from the world No. 9 resulted in a tap-in putt from very close range for par, capping up his second major championship. The emotions of the moment eventually caught up with Thomas, now a two-time major winner, as his father Mike stood nearby and the two shared a hug on the 18th green.

He joins Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Tom Watson, and Johnny Miller as the only players after World War II to have 15 PGA Tour wins, including two majors, before the age of 30. Thomas’ incredible recovery to win the PGA Championship rivals John Mahaffey’s record-breaking seven-shot comeback in 1978.
