2021 The Players Championship final results: Prize money payout, leaderboard and how much each golfer won



The 2021 The Players Championship final leaderboard is headed by winner Justin Thomas, who earned a one-shot win at TPC Sawgrass’ Stadium Course, Fla.

Thomas hit 17 greens — missing the last green — to close with a final round of 4-under 68, beating 54-hole leader Lee Westwood by a shot on 14-under 274.

Westwood made birdie on the final hole to shoot even-par 72, finishing alone in second place.

Bryson DeChambeau and Brian Harman finished tied for third place on 12-under total.

Thomas won the $2,700,000 winner’s share of the $15,000,000 purse.

The Players Championship recap notes

Thomas earned 80 Official World Golf Ranking points with the win in the 72-hole stroke-play championship, which will boost his world ranking.

Thomas also earned 600 FedEx Cup points with the win, which will get his year off to a great start and almost assure him a spot in the Tour Championship.

A total of 71 players finished the tournament in the 23rd event of the 2020-2021 PGA Tour season after a 36-hole cut was made at even-par 144 or better.

The PGA Tour remains Florida next week for The Honda Classic at PGA National’s Champion Course, Fla.
