The Players, prize money of 20 million dollars

A record prize money of $ 20 million. This is the monstrous figure that will be giving away the The Players Championship, the flagship tournament of the Pga Tour golf scheduled from 10 to 13 March 2022 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

An increase of 5,000,000 dollars compared to the 2021 edition, with the winner who, next year, will win a first coin of 3,600,000.

The Players, prize money

It is not the only novelty of the top American men's circuit that continues to encourage the big names with prizes.

The Pga Tour has in fact allocated $ 50,000 for each player who decides to play at least 15 official tournaments in every single season: among these there are also the Presidents Cup, the Ryder Cup and the Olympics. A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty.

This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the "secret weapon" of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.

"He's a good guy, he's been through a lot as a sportsman and he's the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I'm not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period.

" These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed 'the Baltimore Shark', important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. "The mental aspect is something I've worked on a lot with him lately.

I'm really lucky to have him around. Besides, he's a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value." This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
