Bubba Watson's victory

1st: $1,620,000

2nd: $972,000

3rd: $612,000

4th: $432,000

5th: $360,000

But despite the big payout, the Masters is not the richest tournament in golf. That honor is shared by the Players Championship and the PGA Championship, which each offer a $10 million purse. The U.S. Open purse is $8 million and the Open Championship gives out 5.25 million pounds, about US$8.8 million at today's exchange rate.
