Here is the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship | Golf News and Tour Information

Rory McIlroy’s three-under 68 on Sunday was good enough for a one-stroke win at the Wells Fargo Championship. It was a performance that snapped McIlroy’s year-and-a-half slump, and gave the Ulsterman his third win at Quail Hollow. Moreover, Big Mo is now in McIlroy’s corner as the sport turns to its second major of the season in two weeks at Kiawah’s Ocean Corner which, spoiler alert, was the venue of McIlroy’s first PGA Championship victory.

However, right up there with McIlroy among the weekend winners is Bryson DeChambeau. The reigning U.S. Open champ believed he had been cut after a

The team, the team, the team! It’s the mantra of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, where the tournament’s identity as the lone regular-season team competition on the PGA Tour gives it a cache all its own.

Come Sunday at TPC Louisiana, the team of Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith proved the strongest. After starting the day one-stroke back of Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel, the Aussies grabbed the lead on the front nine, gave it back on the back nine and then made an improbable birdie on the 16th hole to eventually force a playoff. On the first extra

Howard University takes on golf, with Steph Curry’s money and a coach’s moxie

He’s wearing a Bison face mask that creeps below his graying mustache and a hat emblazoned with the logo of NBA superstar Stephen Curry. He towers from the top of the hill, arms crossed, mostly silent. Here — on any course, really — is where Puryear finds peace. If he had his way, he would get lost on its rolling hills and blend in with the Bermuda grass.

“Like a ghost,” Puryear says. “I’m okay with people not knowing that I exist.”

But Puryear, a 50-year-old Black man, sticks out in a sport still grappling with
