Major championships are not about the money, but the PGA has made it about the money. For the first time, it is offering a $10 million purse -- only the Players Championship is as much, with the WGC events offering $9 million. The winner will receive $1.8 million with 10th place getting $253,000.

"Hopefully it's an indication to the players on the PGA Tour how much the PGA of America appreciates what they do week-in and week out," president Ted Bishop said.
