New study reveals PGA Tour's highest all-time earner per shot

Despite the havoc wreaked by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 PGA Tour season was officially the most financially rewarding year for its players to date.

New research conducted by William Hill has revealed that PGA Tour players earned an average of $1,578 per swing in 2020, with Masters champion Dustin Johnson earning a whopping $6,619 per shot during the course of the season.

Jon Rahm made $2,245 every time he swung the club, with Webb Simpson taking home $1,633 per shot.

A spokesperson for William Hill commented: “We know that the PGA Tour winnings are always substantial which got us thinking, how much do these golfers really earn every time they swing their club?

“This season in particular looks set to be really exciting and we can’t wait to see who comes out on top.”

The same study also found that, over the course of his career, Rory McIlroy is the top earner per swing of the club, estimated to have racked up a massive $1,920 of winnings with every stroke.

Without the FedEx Cup bonus, Tiger Woods earns the most per swing, bringing in $1,354 per shot.
