Dustin Johnson has moved behind two golf legends on the all-time PGA money list.

The $177,025 he earned for finishing in a tie for 10th place at the Palmetto Championship at Congaree on Sunday vaulted him over Jim Furyk and into third place in PGA earnings. His total winnings of $71.6 million trails only Tiger Woods ($120.9 million) and Phil Mickelson ($94.6 million).

Furyk has $71.5 million in career earnings, followed by Vijay Singh of Fiji ($71.2 million).

Johnson, 36, is the world’s No. 1-ranked golfer. He has 24 PGA Tour victories, including the 2016 U.S. Open and the 2020 Masters, and is among the favorites this week at the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

Spain’s Jon Rahm is listed as the favorite at Torrey Pines by DraftKings (+1050) and BetMGM (+1000), with Johnson in second at +1500 and +1400, respectively. DraftKings also is offering Bryson DeChambeau and Xander Schauffele at +1500.

Also in the U.S. Open field will be Mickelson, who turns 51 on Wednesday. He won the PGA Championship last month for his 45th tour victory. Woods, with 82 wins, remains idle as he recovers from serious injuries sustained in a car accident in February.
