FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — The PGA Championship is keeping its prize money at $11 million, with $1.98 million going to the winner. That trails the other two U.S. majors. Last place receives around $19,000, which is $6,000 more than Jack Nicklaus earned for his first PGA Championship title in 1963. Unlike regular PGA Tour events, everyone goes home with something. Players missing the cut, or those who have to withdraw on the weekend, still receive $3,100.
