Xander Schauffele emerged victorious on Sunday, taking home the Wanamaker Trophy at the PGA Championship at Valhalla Gold Club in Valhalla, New York.

And for Schauffele, 30, and the other golfers who finished near the top, the payoff was rewarding. This year's championship purse was $18.5 million — $1 million higher than a year ago and the largest in the tournament's history.

Schauffele is now $3.3 million richer, while second-place winner Bryson DeChambeau earned $1.998 million, followed by Viktor Hovland in third place with a prize of $1.258 million.

Meanwhile, the tournament drama started early. Before dawn on Friday, the second day of the tournament, early favorite and 2024 Masters champion Scottie Scheffler, was arrested and booked on several charges including second-degree assault of a police officer, and is scheduled to be arraigned on June 3. He reportedly warmed up in jail before being released to make his tee time. Scheffler finished the tournament in a four-way tie for 8th place.
