Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2019 WGC-Dell Match Play Championship


Survive and advance is the motto of this week’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship. The winner at Austin Country Club, site of the event once again in 2019, will have to fight his way through three rounds of group play on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to become one of the 16 players to advance into the knockout portion of the championship. From there, he’ll have to win four matches over two days to claim the Walter Hagen Cup and the winner’s check of $1.745 million from the purse of $10.25 million.
