2014 PGA Championship prize money: Rory McIlroy takes home $1.8 million payout

Rory McIlroy's bank account just keeps growing and his win on Sunday at the PGA Championship gives him another very lucrative payout.

Rory McIlroy is in the midst of one of the best stretches of golf you'll ever see with his latest victory coming at the PGA Championship. That makes two majors in a row and three straight wins. The victory adds to his growing resume of accomplishments and comes with another very large prize. By winning at Valhalla, McIlroy claimed the $1.8 million first-place purse.

He has now won at least $1.5 million in each of his last three events. McIlroy banked $1,665,788 for winning the Open Championship and added another $1.53 million payout with his win last week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. His take on Sunday was the biggest yet and gives him $4,995,788 in on-course winnings in the last four weeks. Winning three straight events is hard enough on the PGA Tour, but beating major-caliber fields three times in less than a month is on an entirely different level.

McIlroy's winnings are even significantly more than what he would have won in the event last year. The PGA increased the purse by $2 million, raising it to $10 million. That led to a considerable jump in the winner's share as Jason Dufner took home $1.44 million when he won last year. The $1.8 million is the biggest prize in a major championship, with the PGA Championship purse topping the Masters, British Open and U.S. Open, all three of which have a $9 million purse.

Although McIlroy will take home the largest stake, he isn't the only player walking away with a significant payout. Ties factored heavily into the final payouts, but 23 players still took home more than $100,000. Phil Mickelson came up just short of a playoff, finishing at 15-under, one stroke behind McIlroy. That was good enough to earn him more than $1 million with a second-place prize of $1.08 million.

Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson finished tied for third, each walking away with $580,000 for their efforts. Here is a look at the complete payout:
