2012 PGA Championship Purse: Rory McIlroy Claims Top Prize

Here's what the top-ten prize money breakdown looks like. As a reminder, prize money for ties is determined by pooling the money, then splitting it equal ways amongst the competitors.

Rory McIlroy finished in first place and received the main prize money with over $1,445,000. David Lynn finished second and ended up with $865,000.

Carl Pettersson, Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley and Ian Poulter earned $384,500 in a tie for third. Blake Adams, Jamie Donaldson, Peter Hanson & Steve Stricker ended up making $226,000 in a tie for seventh.

Sadly, it looks as if no Seattle-type golfers came up with no prizes at all. Ben Crane, Corey Prugh, Jeff Coston, Kyle Stanley and Ryan Moore all ended up missing the cut. None of them ended up earning any prize money.

The full leaderboard recap can be found here. A breakdown of the rest of the purse -- without ties -- can be found here.
