The 2021 Valspar Championship has been garnering all the attention on the PGA Tour. The tournament is held at the daunting Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort and is the last event on the tour’s Florida Swing. While the tournament’s prize pool is not comparable to that of other lucrative events, it still offers a decent payout to the champion and other participants.

The Valspar Championship offers a total prize purse of $6.9 million as per the PGA Tour. It is just short of a seven-million prize pool and it is lesser than what the preceding Zurich Classic of New Orleans or RBC Heritage tournaments awarded. 

However, the total prize pool is still a $200K increase from what the organizers gave in 2019. The tournament has been traditionally increasing the prize money with each passing year, so one can expect the figure to touch seven million by 2022!
