The loot to win the Masters is numerous and overwhelming. There’s the green jacket and Masters trophy, of course, as well as the option to pick them up at Augusta National every April for the rest of your life. They have reserved a seat at the Champions Dinner each year and a seat in the Champions dressing room when you get back on Magnolia Lane. Oh, and your golf legacy is pretty much certain, said the Masters Champion every time you are featured in public.

There is one other thing that the winner receives that, amazingly, can be overlooked: the first place check that goes to the winner. On Saturday, the club released the prize payout for the 2021 tournament with a total of $ 11.5 million and the winner taking home $ 2,070,000. Both numbers were the same as in 2019 and 2020.

The Masters is the second most lucrative among the men’s majors. The US Open spent $ 12.5 million on Winged Foot in September, and Bryson DeChambeau made $ 2.25 million for his win. The PGA Championship paid out $ 11 million at TPC Harding Park in August, with Collin Morikawa receiving $ 1.98 million. The Open Championship awarded $ 10.75 million in 2019 at Royal Portrush.

And the most lucrative wallet on the PGA Tour? This award goes to the Players Championship. Last month, the tour paid out a record $ 15 million payout, with Justin Thomas earning $ 2.7 million for his win.

Before we reveal the breakdown of the prize money for this year in Augusta, here’s a little more history on the Masters prize money. With his victory in 2019, Tiger Woods returned to the absolute career money leader in Masters history, jumping past Phil Mickelson. Woods made $ 9.544 million and Mickelson made $ 8.044 million.

Here’s a look at the top 25 on the Masters career money list along with some notable past champions and where to shake off:
