2012 PGA Championship Purse: Rory McIlroy Takes Home Seven-Figures

The 2012 PGA Championship came to a close on Sunday and saw Rory McIlroy absolutely dominate the field. McIlroy shot a bogey-free round on the tournament's final day and won by an astonishing eight strokes as he finished at 13-under par after four rounds of play.

As you can imagine, aside from being handed the Wanamaker trophy as one of the spoils of victory, McIlroy will also receive a seven-figure check as the top prize, an amount that nearly doubles what the rest of the competitors will receive.

Here is a break-down of the top-ten and the money that they will take home:

First place: Rory McIlroy, $1,445,000
Second place: David Lynn, $865,000
Tie for third: Carl Pettersson $384,500
Tie for third: Justin Rose $384,500
Tie for third: Keegan Bradley $384,500
Tie for third: Ian Poulter $384,500
Tie for seventh: Blake Adams $226,000
Tie for seventh: Jamie Donaldson $226,000
Tie for seventh: Peter Hanson $226,000
Tie for seventh: Steve Stricker $226,000
