Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open

Mexico’s Carlos Ortiz is the more recent winner on the PGA Tour, having claimed victory at the Vivint Houston Open in November. Yet it was just the first PGA Tour title for the 29-year-old compared to the eight that Patrick Reed has won during his career, one in which he’s claimed victories in seven of the last eight seasons and has a major title to his credit (2018 Masters). There’s also the fact that Reed, 30, has held the outright lead or a share of it entering the final round of a tour event seven previous times and converted five of those into victories.

Mind you, it’s not just a two-player affair on Sunday at Torrey Pines. Two strokes back of Reed and Ortiz are three formidable names—Viktor Hovland, Jon Rahm and Adam Scott—and three back sits Rory McIlroy. All told nine players are within three strokes of the lead, suggesting that Sunday’s final round could be highly competitive.

There’s also the specter of how Reed will react after the rules issue he was involved in Saturday at Torrey Pines South, where there were questions surrounding the embedded-ball relief he took on the 10th hole after his approach shot missed the green left. Reed saved par, and PGA Tour officials said after the round that he handled the situation properly despite asking a rules official for confirmation that the ball was embedded after already having moved his ball. Reed walked off the green with a four-shot lead, but played his last eight holes in three over to bring the field back into the mix.

Suffice it to say, there’s plenty to play for on Sunday. The overall prize money payout at this week’s tour stop is $7.5 million with the winner earning $1.35 million for his victory. Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer who made the cut at Torrey Pines. Come back shortly after the end of the tournament and we’ll update this list with player names and what they earned for the week.
