For the first time in the history of the Masters, the winner will get a cheque for more than $2m to stuff into the inside pocket of the Green Jacket.
£2,070,000 to be precise.
That’s more than some of the players in the field this week – such as Japan’s Satoshi Kodaira – have earned in their entire PGA Tour careers to date.
It’s also up by $90,000 on the money Patrick Reed banked for winning the tournament last year.
Even the runner-up (in the event of a player finishing solo second) will trouser a seven-figure sum, taking home $1,242,00 of the record $11,500,000 total kitty.
The money on offer for winning the first men’s major championship has increased exponentially since Horton Smith won $1,500 for claiming the inaugural edition in 1934.
This graph shows the full extent of the increase.
Here’s a breakdown of the money at stake for the top 20 professionals in the final round.
