PGA Golf Prize Money Up for Grabs at 2017 SBS Tournament of Champions

The 2017 SBS Tournament of Champions golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from January 5-8, 2017, on the Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort located on the west coast of Maui in Lahaina in Hawaii. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs this week at the 2017 SBS Tournament of Champions.



The SBS Tournament of Champions is the first PGA Tournament in the calendar year of 2017 but it is not the first tournament of the 2017 PGA season which began last October. The Tournament of Champions is a unique PGA event as the field is restricted to players who won a tournament over the previous calendar year of 2016.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2017 SBS Tournament of Champions is $6.1 million. That's up 3.4% over the $5.9 million in prize money that was up for grabs here last year. All players who start and finish the tournament will earn a paycheck of at least $60,000 which is really a reward by the PGA for all the players who won a tournament in 2016.
