With just three PGA Tour events remaining before the Tour Championship, we thought we’d look at how the race for the 2021 season’s money list champ is shaking out.

Aided by two big wins (WGC-Workday, British Open), Collin Morikawa is the current top money maker with a little over $7 million in earnings. With no one inside the top-10 teeing it up this week in Greensboro, coupled with the TOUR Championship not counting towards official money, the opening two legs of the playoffs (The Northern Trust and BMW Championship) will ultimately determine the money list champion.

With the winner of each of the two playoff events earning $1.7 million, anyone within that number of Morikawa has a legitimate chance to win the title.

Now, if Morikawa claims one of the playoff trophies, he’d clinch his first money title.

Here are the nine players, including Morikawa, who are most likely to win the 2021 Money List title (all within $1.7 million):
