Masters 2021 purse, payout breakdown: How much prize money does the winner make?

Winning any of golf’s four majors is an incredible accomplishment, but there is something special about finishing atop the leaderboard at the Masters. The winner from the previous year placing the green jacket on the most recent champion is one of the coolest traditions in sports.

Oh, and taking home a gigantic check must be pretty nice, too.

Even for the golfers who don’t have great performances at Augusta National, making the cut and playing four rounds can result in a solid payout. Just last year, the four players who finished tied for 51st each walked away with $28,003 — not bad at all for a few days of work.

What’s on the line at this year’s event? Here is the full breakdown of the 2021 Masters Tournament purse, including how much money the winner will earn.
