Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2019 Valspar Championship

News

No winner of the Valspar Championship has ever successful defended his title since the tournament’s inception in 2000. It’s a fact that on its surface seems both surprising and yet not that outlandish. Winning a golf tournament on the PGA Tour is tricky business. So winning it in back-to-back is no small feat. Yet there are just two other official stroke-play stop on tour that’s been around for at least 20 years that hasn’t had a repeat winner (the Players and the Tour Championship).

This is the challenge that faces Paul Casey on Sunday at Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course outside of Tampa on Florida’s West Coast. The Englishman began the Sunday with a one-stroke lead on Dustin Johnson. It’s the sixth time he’s held a lead (or a share of it) entering the final round in his tour career, but he’s only closed things out once (2009 Shell Houston Open) . And despite winning 13 times on the European Tour, he’s got just two PGA Tour titles to his credit.

Should Casey pull out the win, he’ll be rewarded nicely. The purse this week is at the Valspar is $6.7 million, with the winner grabbing $1.206 million for his efforts.
