Wells Fargo Championship 2024: Full prize money breakdown

The sixth signature event of the season takes the PGA Tour to Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo Championship, where Wyndham Clark will aim to defend his title and take home a huge cut of the $20m purse.

The good news for Clark, and the rest of the 69-man field at Quail Hollow, is that World No.1 Scottie Scheffler, who has won the last two Signature Events either side of his second Major victory at The Masters, will not be playing. The 27-year-old, whose performances this season have taken him into the Top 10 on the all-time PGA Tour money list, has withdrawn from the event, which runs from May 9-May 12 in Charlotte, because wife Meredith is due to give birth to the couple’s first child.

Another week, another win, and another jacket for Scottie Scheffler who was victorious at the RBC Heritage.

Masters runner-up Ludvig Åberg is also out having withdrawn with lingering soreness in his knee. The young Swedish star is still expected to tee it up at next week’s PGA Championship at Valhalla and has chosen to sit out this week as a precaution. The Signature Events have limited fields of 70 players and no cut, but Åberg will not be replaced in North Carolina because Peter Malnati, who is next in the Aon Next 10, was already exempt as a tournament winner.

As well as defending champion Clark, who is seeking his second Signature Event win of the season, Rory McIlroy, Max Homa, Matt Fitzpatrick, Tomnmy Fleetwood, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Viktor Hovland and Shane Lowry are among those teeing it up.

Wyndham Clark is the Wells Fargo defending champion

They’ll be joined by the newest Aon Swing 5 and Aon Next 10 qualifiers, as they try to navigate Quail’s famously-difficult Green Mile stretch and bag themselves 700 FedExCup points with a victory.

Let’s take a look at the full money breakdown, including what happens in the event of ties.
