The 21st tournament in the World Golf Championships history will be played starting this week down in the beautiful country of Mexico, where some of the best golfers from all over the planet will converge and compete for the prestigious honor of becoming the WGC-Mexico Championship winner.

A total of $10.5 million will be scattered around in New Mexico for this tournament, with the winner, of course, getting the biggest share. Among the players expected to be part of the WGC-Mexico Championship Field are Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, and last year’s winner, Dustin Johnson.

The Total Payout – $10.5 million

When Tigers Woods won the inaugural WGC-Mexico (then known as the WGC-American Express Championship), the total purse was at $5 million and the legendary golfer took home a cool sum of $1 million. This year, the total purse will be at its highest ever and so will the winner’s share be. The total money in the pot is $10.5 million with the winner set to pocket $1.785 million. Last year, Johnson won his third WGC-Mexico Championship title, cashing in $1.745 million. Johnson has won the tournament three times (2015, 2017, 2019). Woods has the all-time record for most WGC-Mexico Championship titles ever with seven. In addition to his 1999 win, Woods also came out on top in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2013.
