East Lake GC, Atlanta, Georgia Total purse:
$8 million Winner’s take:
Bill Haas won the tournament last year in a sudden-death playoff over Hunter Mahan. The win also catapulted him to the top of the FedEx Cup point standings, meaning he walked away with not only the $1.44 million tournament check, but the extra $10 million check for winning the playoffs. Haas is, of course, the son of former PGA Tour player, Jay. (AP Photo/Rainier Ehrhardt) More From Forbes
