Players Championship final-round primer

We’ve got a rare Monday finish in pro golf this week, and it comes at the PGA Tour’s flagship event — the Players Championship. With uncooperative weather blanketing TPC Sawgrass over the weekend, Tour officials were forced to move the Players finish to an extra day, and what a finish we have in store.

While many of the game’s stars have all but disappeared this week, the stage is set for a Cinderella story at TPC Sawgrass. Of the 20 players within six shots of the lead early in the final round, just one (Keegan Bradley) has won a major championship.

Cameron Smith is currently the man everyone is chasing at the top of the leaderboard, but there is plenty of talent hot on his heels. Anirban Lahiri, Kevin Kisner, Viktor Hovland and Paul Casey are all within striking distance of Smith’s lead, and as we’ve seen in the past at Sawgrass, anything can happen.

Below is the payout information, including winner’s share, for the Players Championship’s $20 million purse (the largest in PGA Tour regular-season history); you can catch the action all afternoon on Monday on the Golf Channel and ESPN+.
