2022 Masters prize money, purse: Payouts, winnings for each golfer from record $15 million pool

AUGUSTA, Ga. — There will be a lot on the line Sunday at the 2022 Masters, and while a cash prize is not at the top of the list for most of the best golfers in the world, there’s still a significant sum on the line available to be claimed over the final 18 holes at Augusta National. Golfers will play for a green jacket, a major championship and also a big check.

The 2022 Masters purse has been set at a record $15 million, paying out a total of $3.5 million more than it has in any prior edition of the tournament. The winner will bring home 18% of that sum ($2.7 million) for winning at Augusta National and taking down an extraordinarily talented Masters field.

While the runner-up will not receive the coveted green jacket, the new second-place prize of $1.62 million is not too shabby, either. That’s more than the winner’s share at nearly every professional golf tournament around the globe in any given year. In fact, 2022 will also be the first Masters in which the third-place finisher receives a seven-figure payday. That person will earn more than the entire field did when Jack Nicklaus won the 1986 Masters.

So while one of the last thing a green jacket-earner will be thinking about come Sunday evening (or Monday morning) is how much money will hit his bank account next week, it’s still tremendous money for the work.
