He was reported to making $395k for his third-place finish in May in 2021 AT&T Byron Nelson. A few months earlier in February, he had bagged close to $50k from his T30 result in 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach. His Masters Tournament's T:27 finish must have brought him around $60k, a standard payout to players who manage to score such positions.

From the above analysis, it can be construed professional golfers like Stallings have arrays of sources from which greens keep coming. Whatever, the results, PGA usually pays a percentage of its purse to almost all of its participants. Active since 2008, it's a plausible theory to say Stallings has had several participatory payouts from his golf career. 

Sources, in regards to the maths discussed above estimates Stallings' net worth, could be anywhere between $4-$5million.
