A professional PGA golfer is someone who competes on the golf course on a professional level. The average salary of a professional golfer varies greatly, due to a number of factors. One factor is how talented the player is, as a large amount of a player’s income comes from the tours they play in. To come in first in a PGA tour, a player can take home roughly $10 million dollars. Even coming in in fiftieth place will still net a player over $1.5 million. On average, though, a professional golf player makes $800,000 per year.
