PGA Salaries 2013

The PGA is quite interesting for professional players as much of their income comes from doing well in tournaments. There are not teams that pay out a standard salary and so players are forced to perform if they want to make money. Caddies however do get a base pay but also get a percentage of their player's winnings. As you can imagine it is advantageous for a caddy to align himself with the best golfer that they can. Below are both player and caddy earnings.
