2021 Senior British Open Championship purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2021 Senior British Open Championship purse is set for $2.5 million, with the winner's share coming in at $720,000 -- more than the standard 15 percent payout according to the PGA Tour Champions' prize money distribution chart.

The Senior British Open Championship field is headed by Ernie Els, Bernhard Langer and Darren Clarke.

It's the 11th event of the new season, with 156 players taking on the Nebraska host course. There is a 36-hole cut to the top 70 and ties.

This tournament is played at Sunningdale Golf Club in England.

The Senior British Open Championship will be played over four days from Thursday through Sunday.

What else is on the line: Charles Schwab 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 money earned this week counts toward the Charles Schwab Cup points list. Each dollar earned translates into a regular season point to qualify for the Charles Schwab Cup playoffs in 2021. The top 72 players get into the first leg.

At the season of the season in 2021, the top five players in the final standings are paid part of the $2.1 million bonus pool (all as annuities), based on the points standings.

The PGA Tour Champions does not offer Official World Golf Ranking points in its events.
