Prize money payout for each golfer at the 2023 Memorial Tournament: Hovland Takes Home 3.6 Mil

Viktor Hovland was hardly an afterthought entering the final round of the Memorial Tournament—he started Sunday just one shot off the lead at the menacing Muirfield Village Golf Club and was coming off an impressive runner-up showing two weeks earlier at the PGA Championship. But with 21 players within three shots of the lead at Jack’s Place, it was hard to single anyone out.

In the end, however, the 25-year-old from Norway proved too much for the rest of the field, shooting a closing two-under 70—including the only birdie of the day on the 17th hole—for a seven-under 281 total, good enough to get him to extra holes with Denny McCarthy. Then, with a seven-foot par putt on the first playoff, Hovland claimed his fourth career PGA Tour title.

“I don’t want it again,” Hovland joked with tournament host Jack Nicklaus after making the playoff putt to win for the first time in the 2022-23 season after posting six top-10s in 15 starts.

I’ve been playing well. I’ve just been trying to stay within myself and play my own game,” Hovland said. “I just played smart and played my game and game up clutch this time. Feels even better after a few close calls in the last few months.”

Hovland’s happiness was offset by disappointment for McCarthy. The 30-year-old, seeking his first PGA Tour title, had been playing bogey-free on the day and had a one-shot lead as he stepped to the 18th hole in regulation. But his drive missed the fairway left and the resulting bogey dropped him back into a tie with Hovland. Then in the playoff, McCarthy returned to the 18th hole only to miss the fairway right and make another bogey, setting up Hovland’s winning par putt.

Hovland’s win earned him the first-place prize money payout of $3.6 million from the $20 million overall purse in the tour’s latest designated event. Here are the prize money payouts for every golfer who made the cut this week.
