The structure of awarding the champion the highest stake from the prize purse is nothing new. This has been followed for years, and the winner of the RBC Heritage will be awarded handsome prize money this year. 

The tournament awards a prize purse of $7.1 million in the 2021 edition, and the winner will take home a huge chunk of $1.278 million (18%) as his reward.

Furthermore, the other top finishers will also earn a good figure as part of the RBC Heritage prize money. Since the total purse is a bit low when compared to other events, only the winner will earn a million dollars while all the others will be below that limit.
