The PGA Tour will begin the first leg of the Fedex Cup Playoffs at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee with the 2022 St. Jude Championships on Thursday.

For the first week of the postseason, the St. Jude Championship purse will see a 30% increase in 2022 with the winner set to take home a $2.7 million payout.

St. Jude Championship 2022: Purse, Prize Money, and Payout

In 2022, the St. Jude Championship purse is valued at $15 million.

While the purse is higher than it’s ever been, the field will also be focusing on FedEx Cup points this weekend.

In the postseason, FedEx points are worth four times more than usual.

Players that finish in first place will be rewarded 2,000 FedEx Cup points, and with the 2022 FedEx Cup winner taking home a smooth $18 million, a win will mean more than ever this weekend.

At the St. Jude Championship, the first place winner always takes home the standard 18% payout of the purse.

That means, in 2022, the winner at the TPC Southwind will earn $2.7 million. The second-place golfer will also take home a cool $1,635,000. With $2.7 million on the line, the best golfers in the world tee off on Thursday morning at 8:15 a.m.
