The prize money at the Masters will make your eyes water

Masters Caddie Suit

The winner of this week’s Masters Tournament won’t just win a fancy new green jacket. They’ll also trouser an eye-watering $2,070,000.

The Augusta National Golf Club has confirmed that this year’s prize fund has been set at $11.5million, the same as it was in 2019, which was a $500,000 increase on 2018.

Only The Players Championship ($15million) and the US Open ($12million) are more lucrative.

Like Tiger Woods last year, the 2020 Masters champion will clear $2million in prize money, with the runner-ups also earning a seven-figure sum, assuming that there is no more than a two-way tie for second.

The $11.5million is distributed primarily amongst those who make the cut, although each pro who doesn’t will still receive $10,000.

Here’s a look at the prize money breakdown for the top 50 places this week…
