WGC-Bridgestone Invitational 2013 payout: Tiger Woods will win another $1.5 million purse

Gregory Shamus

Sunday's win for Tiger will ensure that the richest golfer in the game's history will have cashed three of the season's largest winner's checks.

He's the richest man in the history of golf, and Tiger Woods will add another huge winner's check to his coffers on Sunday afternoon. Woods is cruising to his eighth career WGC-Bridgestone Invitational title, and 18th career WGC title. The purses for the three WGC regular season events on the PGA Tour are actually larger than the four payouts at the majors. A total of $8,750,000 will be paid out on Sunday, whereas only $8 million is awarded at the game's most important four events.

The winner, who will be Tiger, will take home $1.5 million of the $8.75 million purse. The man already has $120,109,956 in career earnings, and he always seems to win where the most money is available. This season alone, he's won four million-plus purses, including the two biggest on Tour. He won the largest prize of the season at The Players Championship, cashing a $1.71 million check. And Sunday's victory at Firestone South will be his second WGC title in 2013, with Woods banking $1.5 million earlier this season at Doral for the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

The victory on Sunday will bring Tiger's total 2013 earnings to $7,659,119 -- not a bad year. Unless someone loses their mind in the FedExCup, no one will come close to matching that total.

If there is no tie, the second-place finisher on Sunday will earn $880,000.
