At the Sentry Tournament of Champions, records were dropping faster than New Year’s Resolutions. Jon Rahm and Cameron Smith shared the 54-hole lead at 26-under-par 193, the lowest total in tournament history and the second-lowest total in relation to par ever on the PGA Tour. Rahm’s 61 on Saturday at Kapalua’s Plantation Course matched the course record, set only hours earlier by Justin Thomas. Friday’s 67.816 overall scoring average was an all-time tournament low at Kapalua … until Saturday when the 67.711 posted became the lowest since the PGA Tour tracked such things in 1983.

Everybody knew the deal, then, come Sunday in Maui. Pars weren’t going to get it done. The question was how many birdies would be enough for Smith or Rahm to take the title at the winners-only event?

Turns out you needed eight, as that’s how many Smith made to pull out the one-shot win over the World No. 1. With a closing eight-under 65, the 28-year-old Aussie shot a 34-under 258 total, setting the record for the lowest score in relation to par in tour history to grab his fourth career tour win.

Smith and Rahm had seemed to run away with the tournament, five clear of the next closest chaser (Daniel Berger) to start the round and six ahead of Matt Jones. The 41-year-old Aussie did his best to put some pressure on the leaders, making eight birdies and two eagles to close with a 12-under 61 and finish in third.

With his wire-to-wire victory, Smith earned the biggest single payday of his career, taking home a prize money payout of $1.476 million from an overall purse of $8.2 million. Here’s the prize money payouts for every golfer in the field at the no-cut event. Come back shortly after the tournament ends and we’ll update all the names and individual payouts.
