We’ve reached the final round of play at the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C. Below you’ll find everything you need to know about the tournament money, including purse, payout information and winner’s share.

2021 Wells Fargo final round preview

Keith Mitchell holds a two-stroke lead at the 54-hole mark at the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship. The 29-year-old Tennessean (and reigning champ of GOLF.com’s ‘That’s Debatable‘ series) enters Sunday’s final round at 9-under, and if he’s able to hold on, would clinch his second victory as a PGA Tour pro.

Chasing closely behind is a gaggle of top-tier players led by Rory McIlroy, who enters Sunday looking to exorcise 18 months worth of demons in Charlotte. The 32-year-old hasn’t won a professional event since late 2019, nor a PGA Tour event since the Tour Championship earlier that same year. A victory at the Wells Fargo — just weeks after beginning work with renowned swing coach Pete Cowen — would go a long way in bringing back the four-time major winner’s confidence at a key time. McIlroy is just weeks away from competing in the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island, the same location where he claimed victory at the PGA in 2012.
