2013 PGA Championship

The 2013 purse was announced Aug. 7th, at the 95th PGA Championship. In 2012, a total purse of $8 million was offered, with a winner’s prize of $1.445 million. The 2013 PGA Champion will have his name inscribed on the Wanamaker Trophy, which is permanently enshrined at the PGA Museum of Golf in Port St. Lucie, Fla. The PGA Champion also receives a replica of the Wanamaker Trophy. 

Method of Play

Seventy-two holes of stroke play, four rounds of 18 holes. Following the first 36 holes of play, the field of 156 players will be reduced to the low 70 scorers and ties. Those players will advance to complete the final two rounds. In the event of a tie for first place after 72 holes, there will be a three-hole aggregate-score playoff on holes No. 16, 17 and 18. If a tie still remains, there will be a hole-by-hole playoff beginning on hole No. 18, and, if necessary, on to holes No. 10, 17, and 18 repeated until a winner is determined.

Rules and Regulations

The Rules of Golf, which govern play, are determined by the United States Golf Association and applied by the PGA of America Board of Directors. The PGA Championship is subject to the overall supervision of the PGA of America Board of Directors.
