Even those golfers who couldn’t sniff a first- place finish stood to make decent money this week — so long as they made the cut — with the clear-cut last – place finisher making nearly $20,000.
You can still hold a golf tournament , but only if you have no spectators on site. That means having fans at PGA West and La Quinta Country Club – other than fans who are sitting in their backyards watching the tournament march past them – depends on two things.

The PGA Tour will pay out $15 million in total prize money this year to the golfers who make the cut at TPC Sawgrass with first place nabbing $2.7 million and everyone in the top three scoring at least $1 million.
No, professional golfers do not make money or get paid if they miss the cut . One exception would be if a player received an appearance fee to play in the event. They would obviously receive that money regardless of performance. Originally Answered: Do pro golfers get paid if they miss the cut ?

We are disappointed to announce that the 2020 PGA Professional Championship , July 19-22 at the Fazio Foothills and Coore Crenshaw Cliffside courses at Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas, has been cancelled .
ESPN, ESPN+ and CBS will broadcast the PGA Championship in 2020 . Early coverage during all four rounds of the Championship will be streamed live on ESPN+, with TV coverage provided by ESPN and CBS. Morning and afternoon Featured Groups will be streamed live on ESPN+ during all four rounds as well.
For most tournaments, the 36-hole cut line is the top 65 players plus those tied at the end of that group. Each major uses a different rule . For the PGA Championship the top 70 players including ties make the cut. Anybody in 71st place or worse does not make the cut.
The inaugural ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP , held last October, was affected by torrential rains that forced us to partially suspend the competition, and also lead to the absence of spectators during the course of the tournament .
Masters joins U.S. Open, PGA as majors this season held without fans; ticket holders for 2020 will retain them for the 2021 tournament. The Augusta National patrons — knowledgeable, vocal and emotional in their embrace of great shots and great champions at the Masters — won’t be a part of the 2020 tournament.
There are no fans at this year’s Masters . At least, no patrons. Not in the typical Masters way. Certainly not in the way there were at last year’s Tiger Woods coronation, when spectators ringed the closing holes three and five and 15 deep.
