In this event, every player finishing the event earns official prize money, with 50th-place finishing professional earning $66,000. Every player making the cut also earns FedEx Cup points, with the winner receiving 2,000 points. The winner receives 49 Official World Golf Ranking points.

The BMW Championship does not have the biggest purse in professional golf. The Players Championship purse is tops at $25 million. The first two FedEx Cup playoff events and nine PGA Tour designated events are tied for second best with a $20 million purse each.

The tournament with the highest first-place payout in all of professional golf is on the PGA Tour. The winner of the 2023 The Players Championship will win $4,500,000, making it the biggest first-place payout in all of golf.
