The Ryder Cup is approaching and for those who tune in, it will be an almighty challenge to peel away from the TV screen over the course of an inevitably dramatic weekend.


Broadcasters love it, fans love it, players love it. The Ryder Cup transcends sport and draws in a crowd to the sport of golf like no other tournament ever could.

Around 600 million global viewers are expected to watch some of the action over the course of the weekend, according to the Ryder Cup official website, and headlines will be dominated by proceedings from Rome.

But what's in it for the players? In an era of enormous cheques being thrown around in an increasingly complicated sporting landscape, how much do players stand to earn from competing on golf's grandest stage? brings you all the details about the Ryder Cup prize money in 2023.

Is there Ryder Cup prize money in 2023?

No. The Ryder Cup does not offer any prize money to players or teams, regardless of whether they win or lose.

It's a truly remarkable thing in 2023 for a global event such as the Ryder Cup to attract the finest talent without the lure of a mega-bucks pay day.

Instead, all 24 players across Team Europe and Team USA will fight for sporting immortality, glory and pride, with no direct financial reward.

Of course, players will be hosted in luxury throughout the tournament and a triumphant performance could lead to exorbitant sponsorship deals. However, during the Ryder Cup, players wear team uniforms as opposed to their own personal sponsors' gear, creating a unique spectacle for fans tuning in and attending on the day.
