2018 Players Championship: Record $11 million purse equals Masters'

The purse for the 2018 Players Championship will stand at a tournament-record $11 million, matching the total amount and prize money breakdown from the Masters in April.

The $11 million purse marks an increase from the $10.5 million awarded last year at TPC Sawgrass. Like Patrick Reed did at the Masters, the winner this week of The Players will earn $1.98 million. The payouts for each resulting spot also match dollar-for-dollar the positional payouts at Augusta National.

Winners Si Woo Kim and Jason Day each pocketed first-place checks of $1.890 million during the past two years at The Players.
