The 121st US Open is officially in the books – and it’s one that Jon Rahm is never likely to forget.

On a tense final day, the 26-year-old Spaniard emerged from a star-studded pack to win his first major championship in thrilling circumstances. 

As the champion, there are plenty of things Rahm receives. For example, the famous silver trophy, the Jack Nicklaus gold medal and enough ranking points to propel him back to world No.1.

Of course, he also earns some money. Or rather a lot of money.

Of the four men’s major championships, the US Open offers the biggest purse – a cool $12.5million. Rahm’s cut? A whopping $2,250,000. Even runner-up Louis Oosthuizen earned himself a seven-figure sum.

Here’s a full breakdown of who’s walking away with what…
