Viktor Hovland Sets PGA Tour Record with $32.1M After FedEx Cup Win

Aug 28, 2023

Viktor Hovland has set a new single-season record for PGA Tour earnings at $32.1 million after he won the FedEx Cup on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Norwegian entered Sunday with $26.8 million in career PGA Tour earnings before he took home $18 million for winning the FedEx Cup. Next year’s FedEx Cup Champion prize will be raised to $25 million, so Hovland might not hold the single-season earnings record for very long as the PGA Tour shuffles its prize standards amidst its planned merger with Saudi Arabia’s LIV Golf.

Hovland began last week’s Tour Championship with a leg-up in Atlanta at -8, as the FedEx Cup finale format allows the top-five ranked golfers to start the tournament at below par based on their season-long performance leading up to the championship.
