The PGA Tour’s seventh signature event of the season is in its final round as the 2024 Memorial Tournament takes center stage at Muirfield Village. While the Memorial marks one of the last big-money tournaments on the PGA Tour schedule, it also kicks off a highly lucrative three-week stretch in professional golf.
A combined $60 million will be up for grabs between the Memorial, the U.S. Open and Travelers Championship — two signature events surrounding the third major of the season — over the next three weeks. Muirfield Village ultimately welcomed 73 players this week, and it was once again Scottie Scheffler that claimed victory at a significant tournament and brought home a massive check to go with it.
Scheffler, back in form after a couple recent hiccups, won for the fifth time in his last eight events. Those five wins are the most in a single season for any PGA Tour golfer since 2017 (Justin Thomas), and given what remains on the calendar, Scheffler now has an opportunity to join the rare eight-win club.
What he has already accomplished, though, is setting a new PGA Tour earnings record for a single season. Collecting $4 million for winning the Memorial, Scheffler has now claimed over $24 million this season — $3 million beyond what he earned in 2023 when he last set the PGA Tour earnings record.
The $4 million paid out to Scheffler matched the sum up for grabs at the Genesis Invitational and Arnold Palmer Invitational on the PGA Tour calendar. And if Scheffler remains on a heater, he could clean up close to eight figures over the next couple of weeks.
Those inside the top 11 all cleared $500,000, while every player inside the top 21 made more than $250,000 with those inside the top 50 bringing home at least $52,000.
