Payday at The Concession

Here's the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2021 WGC-Workday Championship

New name, new course, same lucrative payday. Since their inception in the late 1990s, the World Golf Championships have accomplished the goal of bringing the game’s best players together on a regular basis. And they’ve done it, in part, by making it attractive for them to do so.

The 72 golfers competing at this week’s WGC-Workday Championship (the event’s fifth different title), held in 2021 at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla. (it’s eighth different venue), were eyeing an overall prize money payout of $10.5 million. Sunday’s winner, Collin Morikawa, earned $1.82 million.

Yes, PGA Tour pros play for a lot of money a lot of the time. But if you think this isn’t an insignificant figure, consider this: Before Morikawa closed out his three-shot victory with a final-round 69, that $1.82 million amounted to more than 23 percent of his previous career earnings ($7.683 million to date in thre 24-year-old's nascent career)

For Billy Horschel, who sat two shots back of Morikawa at the start of the day and played with him in the final pairing, the $1.82 million would have been the biggest single tournament paycheck in his 13 years playing as a pro on the PGA Tour. It would have been the second biggest payday ever for Webb Simpson (who was three shots back of Morikawa to start the day), behind only the $1.9 million he made at the 2018 Players Championship (and $400,000 more than his 2012 U.S. Open payday).

Indeed, save for Brooks Koepka (T-2), Rory McIlroy (T-5, four back) and Patrick Reed (T-5), every other remaining player in the top 10 entering Sunday would have cashed his largest single prize money payout of his careers if he’d won.
