Here’s the prize money for every golfer at the 2022 John Deere Classic | Golf News and Tour Information

JT Poston started the final round of the John Deere Classic with a three-stroke lead and the confidence that he could finish a wire-to-wire victory after runs of 62-65-67. Except 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 have won the TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois have done so while maintaining their 54-hole lead. Moreover, only 14 of the 36 winners of the 2021-22 season had been able to convert their lead in the third round into victory. Oh, and Poston was previously 0 for 2 as the 54-hole leader.

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

“I was just trying to breathe,” Poston said after the round, becoming 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 fight through them. I think after today, after this week, I want to know that I can play with those nerves and I can still win, I can still shoot a solid score considering the pressure here.

Poston finished three strokes ahead of Christian Bezuidenhout (66) and Emiliano Grillo (69), still looking for a second win on the tour with victory at the 2015 Frys.com Open in his eighth start in career. The two finalists may not have won the title, but they entered the court for the 150th Open at St. Andrews in two weeks due to their results.

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