Wells Fargo Championship 2013 purse: Derek Ernst cashes career payout at Quail Hollow

Streeter Lecka

Derek Ernst, a rookie who had made less than $30,000 before Sunday, picks up a $1.2 million payday in Charlotte.

It was a career-defining Sunday for Derek Ernst, a PGA Tour rookie who earned his card in last year's final Q-school and started the week as the fourth alternate at the 2013 Wells Fargo Championship. Ernst became a late addition to the field at Quail Hollow when several players withdrew, concerned about the rough shape of the greens at the Charlotte-area course. Four days later on Sunday afternoon, Ernst shot up more than 1000 spots in the world rankings is $1.2 million richer after picking up a playoff win over David Lynn.

In his first season on Tour, Ernst had missed five cuts in his first seven events, with his best finish just inside the top 50 last week at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans. The only other time he made the weekend was at the Sony Open, just the second tournament of the year way back in January. Those two events put his career PGA Tour earnings slightly north of $28,000 before this week. That number will get a bit of a bump now.

Here are the full payout totals for the players who made it to the weekend. This does not include the 11 players who received a "Missed Cut -- Did Not Finish" designation, and like two weeks ago at Harbour Town, earned at least 11K for only two days of work. Not bad if you can get it.
