Patrick Cantlay earns $1.674 million from $9.3 million purse for his playoff victory against Collin Morikawa at Muirfield Village
Patrick Cantlay made a par on the first playoff hole to outlast Collin Morikawa and win the $1.674 million top prize at the PGA Tour's Memorial Tournament on Sunday at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
Cantlay and Morikawa, both 20-something Californians, had tied at 13-under 271 through 72 holes.
The tournament had taken an extraordinary turn late Saturday. Jon Rahm, who held an apparent six-stroke lead after 54 holes, was told upon leaving the 18th green after shooting 8-under 64 that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and would have to withdraw from the tournament. That left Cantlay and Morikawa tied for the lead at 12 under and in the anchor pairing for Sunday's final round.
Here is a look at the breakdown of the $9.3 million purse (* won playoff):
