PGA Championship Purse 2012: Rory McIlroy Earns Nearly $1.5 Million In Prize Money

The 2012 PGA Championship has come and gone and the beautiful scenery at Kiawah Island is now left behind on the golf calendar for everyone, but nearly everyone who played at this weekend's big event earned more than enough to take a return trip, should they choose to do so. Rory McIlroy raked in the big bucks as the winner of the tournament, but even those who finished far down the list still earned a sizable check.

McIlroy took in a lump sum of $1.445 million over four days worth of work, which is a tremendous boost to his career earnings. David Lynn took second place which earned him $865K.

Gary Woodland was tied at 42nd overall which means he earned a cool $29,500 for his efforts.
