When converted to Japanese yen, the total prize money is about 2.2 billion yen, and the winning prize is about 400 million yen, which is an exceptional prize money. If you win one game of The Players Championship, it will exceed the annual prize amount of the Japanese prize king, so you can see how amazing it is. It can be said that the prize money is already more than the major tournament, rather than the prize money suitable for the fifth major tournament.
