2021 Players Championship purse, prize money: Payouts for each golfer from massive $15 million pool

Justin Thomas on Sunday earned the equivalent of a solid 40-year career for most folks by taking home the 2021 Players Championship. The biggest prize money pool in golf was back again this year with the champion at TPC Sawgrass receiving a staggering $2.7 million.

For some perspective, that’s roughly what Johnny Miller made in his entire career.

The top 45 finishers this year all cleared $50,000, and those that made the cut were guaranteed $30,000. While the major championships have waded into the waters of paying the winner $2 million or more, no tournament pays out better up and down the board than The Players.

This purse is the same as the 2020 edition that was never paid out because the tournament was not completed. It dwarfs every other prize pool in the game. The U.S. Open is next closest at $12.5 million. Last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, for example, was $9.3 million.

It’s certainly a week to make your one-and-done selections wisely! Here’s a look at the payouts for all 65 golfers.
