PGA Tour Zurich Classic Prize Money: Winners Take Home $1,286,050 Each

This past weekend was the Zurich Classic, which continues to be the only team competition on the PGA Tour schedule. It is distinct in that regard, but other than that, it is similar to other tournaments in that the winners receive a prize fund. 

PGA Tour Zurich Classic Prize Money

On the PGA Tour, it was a team week. After a couple of weeks of the biggest names in golf competing against one another in major events, there was a little break for a week where players played four days in a different format in a much more laid-back setting. 

However, five of the top 15 players in the world were competing at TPC Louisiana, so there were some larger names in the field than usual. Ultimately, it was two of those more well-known players, Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry. 

While Ramey and Trainer will receive $525,100 as a consolation prize, McIlroy and Lowry will each pocket $1,286,050. Mark Hubbard and Ryan Brehm tied for third place and split the $343,763 prize money. 

Who is the winner of PGA Tour Zurich in 2024? 

The PGA Tour pros took a much-needed breather from competition at the 2024 Zurich Classic of New Orleans after two weeks of back-to-back majors, including the first major of the season. It was the ideal combination for a week of team golf in the Bayou state. 

The Zurich Classic drew a lineup that was perhaps among the strongest in recent memory, despite its position on the schedule and following two major tournaments this season.

At the Zurich Classic of New Orleans this year, Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy, the Ryder Cup duo, were one of the standout pairings. Rory McIlroy, ranked second in the world, was attending the Zurich Classic for the first time this year.

His companion, 2019 Open champion Shane Lowry, shot a stunning 11-under 61 in the best-ball format to start the week off on the highest level of the leaderboard and never glanced back.
