We’ve reached the final round of the 2021 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. Below is everything you need to know about the biggest regular-season purse and winner’s payout in PGA Tour history.

Players Championship final round preview

Bryson DeChambeau and Lee Westwood are preparing to tangle in their second final-round pairing in as many weeks. Westwood, the 44-time professional winner with only two PGA Tour victories, enters Sunday with a two-stroke advantage and a boatload of confidence after sinking a long putt on No. 17 on Saturday evening. DeChambeau, on the other hand, is looking for his second victory in as many weeks after outlasting Westwood in the final round of last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Meanwhile, Justin Thomas and youngster Doug Ghim sit on the outside looking in. Thomas is looking for his first victory since last August fresh off a Saturday 64, but still trails Westwood by three strokes heading into the final 18 holes.

Further back, Jon Rahm and Paul Casey each find themselves needing big Sundays to vault into contention.

Below is the payout information, including winner’s share, for the Players Championship’s $15 million purse (the largest in PGA Tour regular-season history); you can catch the action all afternoon Sunday on NBC.
