Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2022 Sony Open

News

Russell Henley holds a two-stroke lead as he enters the final round of the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club. The 32-year-old Georgia native will be fending off the likes of the defending Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama, the golfer alone in second place, as well as a foursome of players who are four back that includes former Sony Open winner Matt Kuchar. But his biggest nemesis on Sunday in Honolulu might be himself.

Henley is a three-time PGA Tour winner, including a Sony triumph of his own in 2013 (in his first career tour start as a professional). But his last victory came nearly five years ago and his track record when holding a lead entering the final round on tour is sketchy. In the five previous times he’s been out front with 18 holes remaining, he’s closed out the win just once (fortunately for him, that once was Sony in 2013, when he shot a Sunday 63).

Most recently, Henley had a three-shot advantage heading into the final round of the Wyndham Championship last August only to finish T-7 after shooting a one-over 71 that left him one shy of a six-man playoff.

“Yeah, it’s tough. I’ve slept on a few leads the last couple years. It’s hard,” Henley said on Saturday after shooting following up a 62-63 start with a 67 to get to 18-under total. “I struggle to sleep. I’m already not the best sleeper.

“But, yeah, I mean, the thing is you look at what the Hideki did today, he shot seven-under. Guys are so good out here. You just have to play at such a high level for so long to be in contention. So hopefully I can keep doing that and play well [Sunday], give myself a chance on the back nine.”

Henley isn’t wrong. Closing out a win is tough in general. Only nine times since 2000 has the Sony Open winner been the leader entering the final round. And only four times in 10 events so far in the 2021-22 PGA Tour season has the 54-hole leader stayed out front to win the title.

Whoever comes out on top on Sunday in Hawaii will be well rewarded for his effort. The prize money payout for the winner at Waialae is $1.35 million from and overall purse of $7.5 million. Here’s the prize money payout breakdown for every player who made the cut in Honolulu. Come back shortly after the end of the tournament and we’ll have update the list with individual names and their specific prize money payouts.
