Masters 2022 purse, payout breakdown: How much prize money does the winner make?

The Masters is arguably the most iconic major championship in golf, and there’s just something special about being able to win it. Few have ever donned the Augusta National Golf Club’s green jacket, so the moment that a golfer has that gift bestowed upon them by the previous year’s winner is certainly one of the best of their lives.

And then it’s joined by the moment they get the real prize from the tournament: the winner’s check.

The Masters and the other three majors on the PGA Tour have enormous, eight-figure prize pools of which the winner takes home a solid chunk. So, as great as wearing the green jacket for the first time may be, it’s far from the only thing for a golfer to celebrate.

Every golfer who finishes 50th or better in the Masters this year will make at least $37,800. That’s pretty good for a week’s worth of action and four days of actual play.

But just how much does the winner of the tournament make? Here is the full breakdown of the 2022 Masters Tournament purse based on what we know about it to date.

Masters Tournament purse 2022

The Masters purse announced during the tournament is officially the largest it has ever been. It will pay out a total of $15 million in prize money to its participants in 2022. The event had previously paid a total of $11.5 million in prize money to its participants in 2021, which made it the third-most lucrative of the PGA Tour’s four majors behind the U.S. Open ($12.5 million) and PGA Championship ($12 million).

How much money does the winner get?

Scottie Scheffler, the 2022 winner, took home $2.7 million in prize money at this year’s Masters tournament. In each of the previous three tournaments, the winner received $2.07 million in prize money.

The winner’s share in 2022 is 18 percent of the total purse. That remains consistent proportionately with the worth of the winner’s share at previous Masters tournaments.

If there are any ties in the standings, the prize money will be split evenly among the tied golfers. For example, if two golfers tie for second place, they would take the second- and third-place payments, average them together and split it between the two golfers. As such, they would each get about $1.32 million instead of one getting $1.62 million and the other getting $1.02 million.
