Workday assumes title sponsorship of relocated WGC Mexico Championship

  Workday assumes title sponsorship of relocated WGC Mexico Championship The WGC Mexico Championship has found a new sponsor to assume its title during its one-year hiatus in Florida. The tournament, which is relocating to Florida due to the global pandemic, will be known as the World Golf Championships-Workday Championship at The Concession, to…Workday, Inc., has been a  partner of the PGA Tour since 2017, and the leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources stepped in last year to host the Workday Charity Open when the John Deere Classic was canceled. It also previously signed a 10-year agreement in December to become the new presenting sponsor of the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio starting in 2022.

New name, new course, same lucrative payday. Since their inception in the late 1990s, the World Golf Championships have accomplished the goal of bringing the game’s best players together on a regular basis. And they’ve done it, in part, by making it attractive for them to do so.

The 72 golfers competing at this week’s WGC-Workday Championship (the event’s fifth different title), being held in 2021 at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla. (it’s eighth different venue), are eyeing an overall prize money payout of $10.5 million. Sunday’s winner will earn $1.82 million.

Yes, PGA Tour pros play for a lot of money a lot of the time. But if you think this isn’t an insignificant figure, consider this. That $1.82 million amounts to more than 23 percent of the career earnings of 54-hole leader Collin Morikawa ($7.683 million to date in his nascent career.) For Billy Horschel, who sits two shots back of Morikawa and plays with him in the final pairing, it would be the biggest single tournament paycheck in his 13 years playing as a pro on the PGA Tour. It would be the second biggest paycheck ever for Webb Simpson (three shots back of Morikawa to start the day), behind only the $1.9 million he made at the 2018 Players Championship (and $400,000 more than his 2012 U.S. Open payday).

Save for Brooks Koepka (T-2), Rory McIlroy (T-5, four back) and Patrick Reed (T-5), every other remaining player in the top 10 would also cash the largest single prize money payout in their careers if they were to finish on top come Sunday.
