Rory McIlroy Clinches Huge Cash Victory in PGA Tour’s Player Impact Program Rankings

Rory McIlroy secures a $15 million payday by claiming the top spot in the PGA Tour’s Player Impact Program (PIP) rankings.

Introduced in the 2020/21 season, PIP aims to recognize and reward players who contribute significantly to the Tour’s popularity and financial success.

The program seeks to measure the positive influence each top player has on promoting the sport of golf. McIlroy’s accomplishment sees him leading the pack among 20 golfers, sharing a total pool of $100 million. Notably, he surpasses golf legends Tiger Woods and Jon Rahm in the rankings.

Despite a major title drought, the Northern Irishman’s on-course success, coupled with his role as a vocal advocate and face of golf, solidifies his position.

McIlroy’s ascendancy coincides with his withdrawal from the PGA Tour’s policy board, a decision that paves the way for Jordan Spieth to take his place.

Tiger Woods claims the second spot on the list, highlighting the enduring impact of the 15-time major champion on a sport he once dominated. Woods’ limited play in the 2022/23 season, marked by only two appearances and an injury-forced withdrawal from the Masters, underscores his continued influence.

The PIP allocations for the 2022/23 PGA Tour season are as follows:

  1. Rory McIlroy: $15 million
  2. Tiger Woods: $12 million
  3. Jon Rahm: $9 million
  4. Jordan Spieth: $7.5 million
  5. Scottie Scheffler: $6 million
  6. Rickie Fowler: $5 million
  7. Viktor Hovland: $5 million
  8. Justin Thomas: $5 million
  9. Tommy Fleetwood: $5 million
  10. Max Homa: $5 million 11-15. Xander Schauffele, Jason Day, Tony Finau, Collin Morikawa, Matt Fitzpatrick: $3 million each 16-20. Wyndham Clark, Cameron Young, Justin Rose, Patrick Cantlay, Brian Harman: $2 million each
