FedEx St. Jude Championship: How much they all won

Will Zalatoris made hard work of his emotional, maiden win on the PGA Tour at the FedEx St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind. 

After a frankly emotionally exhausting playoff against Sepp Straka, a tearful Zalatoris broke down and hugged his girlfriend after finally getting the win. 

It has been, as they say, a long journey for Zalatoris up until this point. The 25-year-old had previously played in 55 PGA Tour events without a win. 

Of course, that may not sound like much, considering the tournament schedule and the fact players can go what seems like a lifetime without winning. Just ask LIV rebel Dick Bland. 

Zalatoris had previously mustered as many as 16 top-10s, including four as the runner-up. He closed out his Sunday with a sublime 66 after a shaky start on Thursday that he must have felt was going to cost him. 

A clutch par save at the 72nd hole and a verbal shot at the haters saw him reach a playoff which went onto become one for the ages. He will undoubtedly look back on those holes, going toe-to-toe with Sepp Straka and think to himself: what the heck did I just do?! 

The PGA Tour loyalists will tell you winning means more than the money. But Zalatoris did collect a hefty pay day for his efforts. As did his new caddie, who claimed $270,000 on debut. 

I mean, he did earn it, convincing Zalatoris to take a drop when he was contemplating a ridiculous shot when his golf ball somehow found itself wedged between a rock and the Bermudagrass.

Zalatoris earned $2,700,000 for his maiden victory. The prize purses have been increasing in recent years and will grow even more in response to LIV Golf.

The prize purse here was $15million. This tournament replaced the Northern Trust as the PGA Tour's first FedEx Cup Playoff event. Last year, it had a prize purse of $9.7million. Tony Finau won that, earning $1.71million.
