This tournament started with 160 players, and a cut was made this week after two rounds. Every professional player in the field is paid for completing the event, but how much each player is paid at the 2022 Zurich Classic of New Orleans from the correct 2022 Zurich Classic of New Orleans full-field payout is based on their finish.

The 36-hole cut was made to the top 33 teams and ties, and those 78 players have an opportunity to move up the leaderboard in the final round.

With the PGA Tour cut rule down to the top 65 and ties, no players are subject to the PGA Tour's secondary cut any longer.

What else is on the line

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 400 FedEx Cup points, as this is considered an official event on the PGA Tour schedule.

Additionally, there are no Official World Golf Ranking points on the line for this team event.

While this event offers a significant payday, a win comes with the benefits that come with winning on the PGA Tour. Winners of these events get a two-plus season exemption on the PGA Tour, berths into the next edition of the PGA Championship, The Players and the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
