Prize Winning Payments
What is ACH/Direct Deposit?
The PGA of America can send your funds (expense reimbursements, purse payouts, honorarium fees, etc) via ACH directly into your personal or company bank account.
How do I sign up?
Since payments are being issued by PGA of America on behalf of my Section, do I need to sign up for ACH again if I am to receive payment from PGA of America?
No, once you sign up for ACH, payments will be directly deposited into your account from all Sections on the PGA Admin Program and PGA of America.
What’s the turnaround time for payments to be issued?
Payments are issued within 3 business days after a purse payout is sent to the PGA of America Accounts Payables department, regardless if payments are issued via check or ACH.
It takes up to 2 business days for payments to post to your account when using ACH. This is 2 business days after your receive an email notification.
Checks are printed and mailed from Orgen. Delivery time will vary based on the postal service.
What if I move? What if there’s a natural disaster?
Good news! ACH payments are not dependent on a physical address. You will still receive funds if you change addresses or if there’s a natural disaster that disrupts mail service. By contrast, checks sent via mail depend on the PGA of America having an accurate mailing address on file.
Why do I have to provide my mailing address if ACH payments are not dependent on an address?
We still ask for your correct address to ensure we have the most up-to-date information for 1099 purposes.

Want to know where funds were deposited? Forget which account you were using?

When will my 1099 be available?
IRS law states 1099s are due to be sent out by the PGA of America by Jan 31st. If the 31st falls on a weekend, then they’re sent out the following business day.
