This news is also included in Jay Monahan’s memo addressed to members by the PGA Tour Commissioner about changes to the PGA Tour schedule.

The RAP, you know.

The PGA Tour’s Player Impact Program will now pay $50 million to the top 10 players. This is a decrease of $100 million for the top 20 players and a return to original PIP amount in the inaugural year. The $50 million is not going away. Restricted funds will instead be distributed through the FedEx Cup Bonus Program, Comcast Business Tour top 10 which rewards top finishers in regular season points lists.

The Tour’s Positive Interest Program (PIP) is a reward system that rewards players who have generated the most positive interest. This is the Tour’s “objective measurement criteria” that pays Tiger Woods and Rickie fowler, and all those who are responsible for the sport’s popularity and loyalty.

Woods won the two previous years’ tournaments, netting a total of $25 million despite not playing. Woods will likely continue to be rewarded for his contributions to the game. However, more players would rather play for the money than for their reputation. Patrick Cantlay famously stated at the 2021 Tour Championship that he wouldn’t accept any PIP money. It’s ridiculous, I think.

According to the Tour, the story about the changes stated that the Tour would share more details with its members in the coming weeks.
