Zurich Classic purse: Seung-yul Noh gets beer shower, career $1.2M payout

Chris Graythen

It was a pretty good day for Seun-yul Noh at TPC Louisiana, where he won his first PGA Tour event and walked away with more than $1.2 million.

Seung-Yul Noh continued the trend of first-time winners cashing huge checks this season on the PGA Tour. He's the seventh player to win for the first time in this wraparound schedule, and with it comes a career payday. Noh will cash a $1,224,000 winner's check (of the $6.8M purse) for taking the Zurich Classic of New Orleans on Sunday at TPC Louisiana.

It could be the first of multiple career wins for Noh, a 22-year-old up-and-comer who has made noise on PGA Tour leaderboards this season. He already has a Euro Tour win and two Asian Tour wins under his belt, and now this PGA Tour victory could boost him stateside. His career earnings, at just 22, were already at $4,504,455, but this was obviously the biggest win of his nascent career. He had just one six-figure payday so far this season, and before today, his season total was just $459,773. In one day, he increased that total to $1,683,773 and also earned a berth in this year's PGA Championship and next year's Masters. He's played in three previous PGAs but never at Augusta, so there are certainly added perks for Noh beyond the cash.

He also got a nice little beer shower from Charlie Wi and Y.E. Yang, who is one of the four previous Korean-born winners on the Tour.

The two runners-up, Andrew Svoboda and Robert Streb, earned six-figure checks that were both more than half their career earnings to date. Svoboda had won $1,098,733 before this week, while Streb had earned $988,892. They both walk away with almost $600k from NOLA.
