The 2024 John Deere Classic prize money payout is from the $8 million purse, with 76 professional players who complete four rounds at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., earning PGA Tour prize money this week.

The winner's share of the John Deere Classic prize pool is at $1,440,000, with the second-place finisher taking home $1,002,800 in PGA Tour prize money today. The John Deere Classic prize-money payout breakdown shows a payout of 18 percent of the purse to the winner, and how much each PGA Tour player earns is guaranteed down to the last-place professional player, which is $15,440.

The John Deere Classic field is headed by Davis Thompson, Aaron Rai, Eric Cole and more. The PGA Tour leaderboard is topped by Thompson, who carries a two-shot lead into the final round.

This tournament started with 156 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 2024 John Deere Classic from the correct 2024 John Deere Classic full-field payout is based on their finish.

The 36-hole cut was made to the top 65 players and ties, with every player able to move up in the final round. An amateur made the cut and will not be paid for their finish.

The 2024 John Deere Classic prize money payout is set ahead of the event, with the PGA Tour typically adding money to the purse if more than 65 professionals make the cut to ensure all players are paid.

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 500 FedEx Cup points, as will be the practice for all standard events in 2024.

Additionally, there are 39 Official World Golf Ranking points on the line for the winner.

While this event offers a significant payday, the win comes with enhanced PGA Tour status. The winner gets a two-year PGA Tour exemption, and it goes a long way into getting that player into the 2025 Signature events.
