2021 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2021 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play purse is set for $10.5 million, with the winner's share coming in at $1,820,000 -- less than the standard 18 percent payout according to the PGA Tour's prize money distribution chart.

The WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play field is headed by Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and more of the world's best players.

Every player earns a paycheck this week, with the last-place finisher earning $35,000. Players who get out of the round-robin stage and into the final bracket of 16 earn a minimum of $189,000. Losers in the quarterfinal round get $337,000, then the four semifinalists have matches to slot the top four finishers.

All of the players who failed to make the Round of 16 were paid on a sliding scale based on performance in their three matches: a payout for players who scored 0 points in group play, a different payout for those who earned 0.5 points, another for players who earned 1 point, another for players who earned 1.5 points and a final group for players who earned 2 points. Those payouts will be determined based on how many players fall in each group at the end of group play.

The event is at the Austin Country Club in Austin, Texas, with the Pete Dye design that is great for match play.

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 550 FedEx Cup points, with WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play allocating the standard amount of points.

The winner gets 76 Official World Golf Ranking points, with the points available based on field strength.

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