Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at the John Deere Classic

J.T. Poston started the final round of the John Deere Classic with a three-shot lead and the confidence to think he could finish off a wire-to-wire win after rounds of 62-65-67. Except that winning on the PGA Tour isn’t easy, especially wire-to-wire, three-shot leads be damned.

Consider that less than half of the last 21 golfers who were victorious at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., did so while holding on to their 54-hole lead. Also just 14 of 36 winners during the 2021-22 season had been able to convert their third-round lead into a win. Oh, and Poston was previously 0-for-2 as a 54-hole leader.

Despite all the negative numbers, the 29-year-old North Carolina native pushed along, shooting a two-under 69 to finish at 21-under 263 total and grab his second career tour title.

“I was just trying to breathe,” Poston said after the round, having become the third golfer to go wire-to-wire at the JDC and the first since David Frost in 1992. “There were a lot of nerves, a lot more than the first few days. I was just trying to battle through them. I think after today, after this week, I feel like knowing I can play with those nerves and I can still win, I can still shoot a solid score considering the pressure out here.”

Poston finished three shots ahead of a charging Christiaan Bezuidenhout (66) and Emiliano Grillo (69), still searching for a second tour win of his own to got with a 2015 Frys.com Open victory in his eighth career tour start. The two runners-up might not have won the title, but they did get into the field for The 150th Open at St. Andrews in two weeks by virtue of their finishes.

With the win, Poston also gets to play at the Open for the first time in his career and walks away with a handsome finanical reward. The overall prize money payout at this year’s John Deere Classic is $7.1 million, with the champion claiming $1.278 million for his victory.
