Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2022 John Deere Classic

News

The uncertainty of what is to come on Sunday at the PGA Tour’s John Deere Classic has the potential to make the final round a more intriguing watch than one initially might think.

Start with the 54-hole leader, J.T. Poston. The 29-year-old North Carolina native, has a three-shot edge coming into the final day at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., after rounds of 62-65-67 to get to 19 under par. Poston has one PGA Tour win to his credit (2019 Wyndham) but has not closed out a victory in the two times on tour that he was leading with 18 holes to play. Only 10 of the last 20 JDC winners have converted 54-hole leads to 72-hole triumphs; and just 14 of 36 tour winners have done it in the 2021-22 season.

So if Poston doesn’t pull it off, who then can? Scott Stallings is one of three who trails by three, and the 37-year-old journeyman who transformed his body in recent years has shot par or better in the last 21 rounds he’s played at TPC Deere Run. Stallings has three career tour wins, although the last came at the 2014 Farmers. He’s has played well of late, and this might be the best shot he gets at victory again.

There are others: Emiliano Grillo wants a second tour win, which many figured would have happened much more quickly after the Argentine won the 2015 Frys.com Open at age 23 and in just his eighth tour start. He’s three back, as is Denny McCarthy, whose reputation for as a world-class putter is well-noted on social media but hasn’t led to a first tour win just yet. The good news? The JDC is known for giving first-time winners their big break, with 24 champs making a Quad Cities their debut title.

Another intriguing story could be Callum Tarren, a 31-year-old from England who can “win” but simply finishing in the top 10 at day’s end. The John Deere Classic serves as a final qualifying event for the Open Championship, with the top three finishes not already in the field at St. Andrews earning spots. Tarren has never played in the Open, but worked as a teenage volunteer in 2009 when the championship was at Turnberry.

Lots of different stories can play out on Sunday, with the winner walking away with a handsome reward. The overall prize money payout at this year’s John Deere Classic is $7.1 million, with the champion claiming $1.278 million for his victory.

Below is the prize money payout for each golfer who made the cut. Come back shortly after the end of the tournament and we’ll update this to account for each player’s name and earnings.
