Prize money of 12.5 million US dollars is up for grabs at the US Open 2021 this weekend. The lucrative pot is the largest of all four major golf championships, offering a whopping $ 2.25 million for the winner and $ 1.35 million for the runner-up. The combined payout for the top five players on the leaderboard is $ 5.5 million.

The $ 12.5 million prize pool is the same as last year’s US Open payout, and the prize pool for each slot remains the same as last September when Bryson DeChambeau won his first major championship of his career with Winged Foot.

However, the location of this year’s event, Torrey Pines, is not a winged foot. It is playing longer than the US Open venue last year. With a par 71, it looked receptive enough for golfers to use the course. DeChambeau, for example, was the only golfer to underperform at the US Open last year; almost two dozen in the field ended up in the red after round 1.

Let’s see how the 2021 US Open prize money is spread out as we prepare for an exciting weekend in La Jolla, California. When golfers are tied for a place, they share the average of the combined winnings of their respective places on the leaderboard.
