The following is a list of the prize money up for grabs for professional golfers at the 2014 Deutsche Bank Championship, which is taking place from August 29 to September 1, 2014, at TPC Boston in Norton, Massachusetts.
The Deutsche Bank Championship is the second round of the FedEx Cup playoffs for golfers, and the tournament offers one of the larger purses up for grabs in 2014 ($8 million). Only the top 100 players on the FedEx points list are eligible to play in the 2014 Deutsche Bank Championship.
Golfers really want to do well this week at the Deutsche Bank Championship so they can keep advancing in the FedEx Cup playoffs and try to advance to the Tour Championship in a few weeks. Only 30 players will make the Tour Championship and each one of those players will make at least $128,000 no matter how badly they play there.
Players are not guaranteed any money at the Deutsche Bank Championship, as only the top 75 players (plus ties) will make the cut this week and make money. The Deutsche Bank Championship has been played since 2003, and been part of the FedEx Cup playoffs since 2007.
To date, Vijay Singh is the only player to win the tournament twice (2004, 2008). All three of golf's biggest stars have won the Deutsche Bank Championship. Tiger Woods won in 2006, Phil Mickelson in 2007, and Rory McIlroy won in 2012.
The total prize money at the 2014 Deutsche Bank Championship is $8 million. The same amount of money as last year. The tournament is unique on the PGA Tour because it is played from Friday to Monday.
