European PGA Tour Golfers Who Made the Most Money in 2017

Here's a list of the golfers who made the most money on the European Tour in 2017. The PGA owns the European Tour. Only prize money made by the players on European Tour events is included plus bonus prize money the players made from their Race to Dubai finishes.

Money the players made on the PGA Tour or any other tour are not included here unless the events were co-sanctioned by the European Tour. All the majors and WGC events are co-sanctioned by both the PGA and European Tours. So prize money from those events are included below. 

Technically, players like Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth made more than enough money in the golf majors and WGC events to be included on this list but Thomas and Spieth are not members of the European Tour.  So they are not included here. You can see the players who made the most money in 2017 on the PGA Tour here.

You can see the European Tour player who made the most money in one year here. The top player below made quite a bit below the most amount of money ever made by one player in one year.
