PGA Championship 2013 Payout: Winner's Purse and Final Leaderboard

Tim KeeneyContributor IAugust 12, 2013

Jason Dufner just received a massive raise. 

By holding off veteran Jim Furyk on Sunday to win the 2013 PGA Championship, his first career major, Dufner earned a hefty $1,445,000—which is more than what he had made in the first eight months of 2013

Not too shabby for a few days' work. 

But what a few days of work it was for the 36-year-old American, who was absolutely locked in for 18 clinical, almost machine-like holes of golf. 

Nearly going bogey-free for the second time this tournament—the first being during his course-record-setting 63 on FridayDufner's only two mess-ups came on Nos. 17 and 18 when the tournament was already pretty much decided. On the first 16 holes, he hit four birdies, showing off an absolutely unreal mid-range game:

Dufner can sometimes struggle with the putter, but it's pretty easy when you are hitting approach shots like that. And as fellow pro Geoff Ogilvy and ESPN's J.A. Adande pointed out, the former Auburn star was making it look easy:

It was the performance of a consummate professional, and the raise is a well-deserved one. 

Let's take a look at the final leaderboard and prize money for the top finishers. Hopefully some of them were paid with the really big checks

Other Notable Finishes

The top two players on the 2013 PGA Tour money list, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, were quite disappointing at this tournament. 

Woods finished in a tie for 41st, earning $28,000, while Mickelson made just $14,750 for his 72nd-place result.

No. 3 on the money list Matt Kuchar fared quite a bit better. He tied with Michael Thompson and David Lynn in 22nd place, thus earning a cool $75,000. That will be enough for him to pass Lefty for second place. 

Perhaps the most surprising performance came from 24-year-old Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand. After missing the cut at his first career major in Scotland last month, he shot an impressive one-over this week to finish in a tie for 25th. 

For his efforts, he took home $58,750. He has three wins overseas, but that is still a healthy sum to bring in.
