2011 PGA Championship Payouts, Purse: Ryan Moore, Robert Garrigus Don't Fare Well

Ryan Moore and Robert Garrigus faded over the final two rounds of the PGA Championship, but still pocketed a five-figure paycheck for making the cut. With a hefty purse -- winner Keegan Bradley earned $1.445 million -- the PGA Championship can be a lucrative affair, even for those that fall out of contention after making the cut.

Garrigus and Moore had rough weekends, with the former shooting a 76 on Sunday and the latter doing the same on Saturday. The end result was a T-56 finish for Moore and a T-62 finish for Garrigus. Moore pocketed $16,600 for his efforts while Garrigus took home $15,750. Just making the cut at the PGA Championship was worth $14,550 this year.

At the top of the leaderboard, Keegan Bradley defeated Jason Dufner in a three-hole playoff to take home his first major championship on Sunday. Bradley made a hard charge while Dufner faded on the back-nine, resulting in a tie after 72 holes. Bradley was superb in the playoff, earning the PGA Championship for his efforts.
