PGA Championship purse up to $17.5M total

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The winner of the PGA Championship will be getting $3.15 million.

The PGA of America released its prize fund Saturday at $17.5 million. That’s up from $15 million last year, and $500,000 less than what the Masters offered last month.

The other two majors have not announced their prize money.
