Ryder Cup 2021 purse

There has never been prize money for the Ryder Cup that goes directly to the players. Whichever team wins receives money to donate towards their charities of choice. Those donations then get put in each golfer’s name. 

The exact purse amount hasn’t been announced for this year, but in 2018, Team USA sent around $2.85 million to communities even though they lost. The biggest prize of the Ryder Cup is bragging rights for the next two years.
