After 12 long months of anticipation, we’ve finally reached the final round of the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines’ South Course. Below, find everything you need to know about the tournament money, including purse, payout information and winner’s share.

U.S. Open final round preview

For all the discussion surrounding the architectural significance of Torrey Pines (of which there has been many), the field at the U.S. Open has provided a leaderboard chock-full of big names. The South Course, which is hosting its second national championship in 2021, has proven a worthy host of the so-called toughest test in golf — leaving only 13 players under par through 54 holes of play.

Three players have emerged from the pack to form the top of the heap heading into Sunday’s final round. Russell Henley, Mackenzie Hughes and Louis Oosthuizen form a three-way tie for first at the 54-hole mark, each clinging to a score of five under through the early portion of the day.

Behind the leaders lurk a host of big names headlined by 2020 U.S. Open champ Bryson DeChambeau. DeChambeau enters Sunday’s final round tied for fourth at three under, two strokes back of the leaders. A victory would make him the first repeat winner of the national championship since — you guessed it — Brooks Koepka in 2017/18.

Tied with DeChambeau at the 54-hole mark is Rory McIlroy, who vaulted himself into contention on Saturday with a third-round 67. McIlroy looks to claim his first major win in nearly seven years on Sunday, and will be looking to do so with the help of a peculiar good luck charm.
