For Example, if the top PGA Professional finishes 1st or 2nd Overall, they would win the higher place cheque from the Open Purse (but would not also win the top Club Pro cheque). The top Club Pro cheque will go to the next best PGA Club Professional not earning a higher value cheque in the Open Division purse.
