That win was Clark’s first major victory as a pro, and it paid handsomely.
In fact, the tournament win came with a $3.6 million payout as part of the largest purse in the event’s history. It’s just a portion of winnings the 29-year-old has cashed in on this season.
Things really got rolling for Clark at the start of May. He landed his first win on the PGA Tour at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, NC. That, too, came with $3.6 million in earnings.
In total, Clark has won more than $7.5 million over his last six weeks of play. To put that in perspective, he’d reportedly made just $2.5 million in winnings over the previous six years.

Fans have been quick to comment on social media.
One person wrote, “Such a crazy game. Can just find something in your game and change your life forever in the blink of an eye.”
Another said, “That’s what the grinds all about. Finally break through and life can change forever.”
It’s been an exciting few weeks for Wyndham Clark on the links. We’ll see if he can keep the momentum rolling as his successful season continues on.
