The Travelers Championship was one of the few tour events that took place after the pandemic hiatus last year. Dustin Johnson reigned supreme and carded a score of 19-under after four rounds at TPC River Highlands

The tournament awarded a $7,400,000 prize purse last year, and the same will repeat in 2021 as well. So the entire field is competing for a shot at the $7.4M prize pool at the 2021 Travelers Championship.

Winner’s payout at 2021 Travelers Championship

Just like any other PGA Tour event, the champion will take home the highest payout at the 2021 Travelers Championship. To be precise, the winner of the Travelers Championship will receive an 18% stake of the prize money. 

Here is how the prize distribution will work. The eventual champion will get $1,332,000 from the total $7.4M prize purse. Besides the $1.32M payday, the winner of the tournament will also receive 500 FedEx Cup points and 58 Official World Golf Ranking points. 

This is indeed a huge payout. Of course, becoming a champion has its own perks. Furthermore, only the winner will earn a seven-figure payout at the Travelers Championship as the rest of the field will receive payouts depending on the leaderboard finish. 

Here’s how much the top five positions will earn:

Winner$1,332,000
