KPMG Women’s PGA Championship preview

In a week filled with storylines, the 2021 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship has distilled down to a single, Sunday narrative: a duel for the right to claim a first-ever major championship.

On one end of the ledger is the heavy favorite, Nelly Korda. Korda, a 22-year-old five-time LPGA winner, entered the week as one of the tournament favorites and comfortably holds a place atop the mantel of “best players never to win a major.” Korda, who finished T3 at the KPMG Women’s PGA in 2019 and has top 10 finishes in all-but-one major, enters Sunday holding a share of the 54-hole lead at 15 under.

And on the other end of the ledger is the pesky underdog, Lizette Salas. Salas also has top 10s and top 5s in majors, but has only one LPGA Tour win to her name in more than 10 years playing professionally. The 31-year-old played alongside Korda in the 2019 Solheim Cup, and though she doesn’t hold a significant professional win to her name, Salas knows what it’ll take to come away victorious — she holds a half-dozen runner-up finishes throughout her professional career, including one at the 2019 Women’s Open.

Both players with duel in the final pairing on Sunday for the right to win a record-breaking purse — some $4.5 million — the most in the history of the event. Below, find complete payout information, including winner’s share, for every player in the field at Atlanta Athletic Club on Sunday; you can catch all the action on NBC.
