PGA golfer Daniel Berger made $50,000 on Thursday after hitting just one tee shot. Berger showed up to the World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio and hit his opening tee shot. He then promptly withdrew from the tournament due to a shoulder injury. As Golf Channel noted, Berger will receive $50,500 for finishing in last place this week because the tournament is a no-cut event. He won’t receive any FedEx Cup points, though.
