2021 The American Express purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2021 The American Express purse is set for $6.7 million, with the winner's share coming in at $1,188,000 -- the standard 18 percent payout according to the PGA Tour's prize money distribution chart.

The American Express field is headed by Patrick Cantlay, Patrick Reed, Matthew Wolff and more of the world's best players.

The 156-player field is an open event on the PGA Tour schedule, with it being the 15th event on the 2020-2021 PGA Tour season.

A cut is made after 36 holes to the top 65 players and ties for the final two rounds of the tournament. All players who finish four rounds of the tournament will earn money.

The event is played this year at PGA West's Stadium Course in La Quinta, Calif.

What else is on the line: FedEx Cup points, OWGR points, exemptions

Beyond money, there are important points, perks and benefits on the line for the field -- in particular, the tournament winner.

The winner of this event will get 500 FedEx Cup points.

The winner gets 46 Official World Golf Ranking points, with the points available based on field strength.

Winning comes with other big benefits, including a two-plus season exemption on the PGA Tour, as well berths into the 2021 Masters and 2021 PGA Championship, as well next year's Sentry Tournament of Champions.
