How much every player won at The Players Championship

Justin Thomas earned the biggest payday of his career after winning The Players Championship on Sunday and although lifting that trophy will be the most important part of his victory, the jaw-dropping cheque that comes with it should put a wider smile on his face.

In 2019, when Rory McIlroy won The Players Championship, the total prize purse was $12.5 million, but the PGA Tour announced last year that they would be increasing the pot to make the event even more lucrative.

This year's Player Championship had a whopping purse of $15 million, with Thomas taking home $2.7 million for his victory.

Lee Westwood, who finished as the runner-up for the second week running, will of course be disappointed to have let his overnight lead slip, but his birdie at the final hole meant he finished in solo second, earning him $1,635,000, which is forty grand shy of what Bryson DeChambeau won at last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Players Championship is the highest paying event on the PGA Tour, including the majors, with Dustin Johnson's victory at The Masters in November earning him $2.07 million out of a $11.5 million prize pot, although this year's majors are set to be worth even more than before.

Check out the full prize money payouts in the list below to see how much every player earned at the 2021 Players Championship.
