From Aug. 13 to Aug. 16, the PGA Championship 2015 will air on CBS and TNT. For fans who can’t pass going to Whistling Straits, Wisc., to be there in person, PGA Championship 2015 tickets start at $30 to $40 for the first three practice rounds from Aug. 10 to Aug. 12 and go up to $90 and $95 to attend the four official rounds toward the end of the tournament.
The biggest attraction of the tournament is seeing which pro golfer on the PGA leaderboard will win the lion’s share of a $10 million purse. Last year, winner Rory McIlroy walked away with $1.8 million — a payout that only added to the star’s huge net worth. McIlroy, along with contenders Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson and other pros, are some of the most lucrative athletes in the world. Check out how much each one is worth below, according to CelebrityNetWorth.
