Jon Rahm’s withdrawal from the Memorial due to a positive Covid-19 test will cost him at least $19,437. 

And as much as $1.674 million. 

On Saturday, after shooting an eight-under 64 and building a six-shot lead during the third round at Muirfield Village Golf Club, Rahm was forced to withdraw due to the positive test, per PGA Tour protocols. He would have been in line for the over $1.6 million winner’s payday — and at least the nearly $20,000, the amount given to the player who finishes last among those who made the cut.

According to the Tour, Rahm will receive some money, though it’s unclear how much. On Saturday, Andy Levinson, the Tour’s senior vice president of tournament administration, said there is a stipend program for players who are forced to withdraw “to assist them with lost earnings and potential costs of isolation and so forth,” and last July, the Tour said that stipend was $75,000.  

The biggest financial beneficiaries of Rahm’s withdrawal will likely be Patrick Cantlay and Collin Morikawa. They were six shots back; now they share the lead entering the final round.
