Winning experience on the PGA Tour at the top of the third-round leaderboard at the 2024 Mexico Open was scarce.

After last year’s final-round duel between heavyweights Jon Rahm and Tony Finau, this year’s final grouping will have exactly zero wins between them.

In fact, the final pairing of Jake Knapp and Sami Valimaki were both searching for their first PGA Tour wins Sunday.

The same goes for the other three players in the top 5 on the leaderboard. Defending champ Tony Finau started the final round as an afterthought, 11 shots back in a tie for 20th.

But what leader Jake Knapp lacks in winning experience, he believes he makes up for it with his experience as the bouncer for a Costa Mesa, California club ironically called The Country Club.

“I think standing there at 1:00 in the morning every Friday and Saturday night, you kind of realize how good you have it when you get to travel and play golf for a living,” Knapp said Saturday night. “I think that, and then also like a bit of grittiness, the fact that I don’t want to necessarily want to have to go back to that. Yeah, I think it was a lot of different things, but I think it just kind of gave me some thicker skin and allowed me to get to where I am now.”

Of course, not only is Knapp motivated by the better hours and better lifestyle of playing professional golf, but also the money. And there’s a good bit to be paid out to Knapp and the rest of the field this week in Nuevo Vallarta.

With that, here is a complete list of the 2024 Mexico Open at Vidanta payouts for all 65 players who made the cut. The total purse is $8.1 million.
