2020 U.S. Open: Purse, prize money and payouts

Winner at Winged Foot will earn $2.25 million from the $12.5 million purse, the richest of the PGA Tour’s 4 major championships

The winner of this week’s U.S. Open will receive $2.25 million from the $12.5 million purse, the USGA announced Saturday.

Any disappointment that the runner-up might feel at an opportunity squandered should be tempered by a $1.35 million check.

Though the U.S. Open prize money remains the same as what was paid at the national championship in 2019, it still represents the biggest payout of the PGA Tour’s four major tournaments. Collin Morikawa earned $1.98 million from the $11 million purse at the PGA Championship last month.

The Masters, which was rescheduled for November because of the coronavirus pandemic, has not announced its purse. Last year, Tiger Woods earned $2.07 million from an $11.5 million purse for winning his fifth Masters title.

The British Open was canceled this year because of global travel restrictions. Last year, Shane Lowry earned $1.935 million from the R&A’s $10.75 million purse.

The Players Championship, which was canceled March 12 after the first round because of the growing coronavirus pandemic, paid $12.5 million in 2019, including $2.25 million to winner Rory McIlroy.

Of course, it’s all dwarfed by the $15 million bonus that Dustin Johnson collected two weeks ago for winning the Tour Championship and the PGA Tour’s 2020 FedEx Cup.
