PGA Golf Prize Money Up for Grabs at the 2019 Barbasol Championship

The 2019 Barbasol Championship golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from July 18-21, 2019, on the Grand National Course at the Keene Trace Golf Club located in Nicholasville, Kentucky. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs this week for the PGA golfers at the 2019 Barbasol Championship.

The Barbasol Championship is an alternate event on the PGA Tour for the British Open and it dates back to 2015. Scott Piercy was the inaugural winner, Aaron Baddeley from Australia won in 2016, Grayson Murray won in 2017 and Troy Merritt is defending champion. 

PGA Tour players who did not make it into the 2019 British Open can play in the Barbasol Championship this week. Players earn reduced FedEx Cup points and prize money this week and the winner of the Barbasol Championship does not get a Masters invitation but the winner does get a full two-year PGA Tour exemption just like the winner of a regular PGA Tour event.

The field for the 2019 Barbasol Championship includes two-time major winner John Daly. Daly won the British Open in 1995 and is eligible to play in the major this week but withdrew because he is not allowed to use a golf cart and instead entered this alternate event. How will he do?  It's a good reason to watch to find out this week.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2019 Barbasol Championship is $3.5 million. The same amount of prize money that was up for grabs in this PGA Tour event last year.
