No, a term of accepting the sponsors invite is that he doesn't receive any official money, so no, he receives none of the tournament purse.

Do PGA Tour players have to pay entry fees for PGA Tour events?

Basic FeesThe entry fee for a PGA Tour Event has been $100 for a long time. It is the player's responsibility to confirm with each tournament committee that they intend to play that event, and have their application completed and in the tournament office before the deadline for that tournament (usually the week before). They do not have to pay for each day of a 4 day tournament, and they do not have to pay for any practicing they do, or practice rounds they play.

What does champion golfers winner gets?

What do Champion Golfers win? If that is your question this answer may help you.What a champion golfer wins in a tournament all depends on whether he/she is a professional or an amateur. Generally, for at least the professional golfers you see on television, golf and sponsorship is their main source of income. Amateurs, even the best don't play tournaments for the money, but rather for the love of the game, or just to win the tournament. However, before a golfer can turn professional he/she will be an amateur.Professional golfers, if they are really good will (i.e. playing on the PGA, Web.com, European, or even Canadian Tours) usually make anywhere from a few hundred/thousand dollars to ten million in a given tournament. Also, with wins come ranking points, the better your finish in a given tournament the more ranking points you obtain, these ranking points rank the golfers in the given tour (PGA, European...etc) from most consistent to least consistent. In addition, the vast majority of professional golfers are sponsored by a golf eguipment company, which means that the company will pay them to wear and use their products...again the more consistently you win and are seen on television, generally, the more a company will pay you. Some famous professionals, like Tiger, Phil, Ernie...etc probably get paid millions in sponsorship, and appearance money. Plus, if they win they get a nice trophy too!Amateurs on the other hand, are not alowed to win prize money, only equipment and prizes, and only a certain amount of those things. I think its probably under a thousand dollars worth. An amateur may not accept prize money because if he/she does then they become professional. Also, amateurs, instead of being paid to play a tournament, must pay to play a tournament (unless they are invited for their outstanding performance in another event)...although in some smaller events like with the local pros in your area not the big tour players may also have to pay to play..It is probably imposible to make a living as an amateur golfer just playing golf...but all the pros even the best were amateurs at one point. Basically, champion amateur golfers win the tournament, a trophy, point rankings (like the pros), a reputation, and small prizes.

How much money does Tiger Woods make for each tournament he wins?

Tiger Woods makes an appearance fee for each tourney, which he receives no matter what happens. If he misses the cut, he still makes between $500,000-$1,000,000, depending on the sponsors and the tourney. Then he also wins purse money, which also depends on the tourney. Suffice it to say that he makes more money just by showing up, regardless of anything else, than most people make in a calender year. Additional note:Tiger Woods only receives an appearance fee for a non PGA Tour event, e.g., when he plays in Dubai, Asia, or Australia. The PGA Tour does not pay fees to PGA Tour members. His endorsement money represents 95% of his income. In 2008, he made over $100 million, but only $5 million of that came from PGA Tour earnings.
