The winner of the 146th Open Championship will bring home dollars, not pounds, for lifting the Claret Jug at Royal Birkdale this month.

On Wednesday the R&A released the payout breakdown for golf's third major of the season, scheduled for July 20-23 in Southport, England, and its total purse of $10.25 million.

Earlier this year, Martin Slumbers, the chief executive of the R&A, told BBC Sport that the pound's decreased value post-Brexit would have a "serious impact" when considering the currency of the Open's purse.

"We are operating in an increasingly global marketplace and have made the decision to award the prize fund in U.S. dollars in recognition of the fact that it is the most widely adopted currency for prize money in golf," Slumbers said in a statement Wednesday.

This year's British Open winner will receive $1.845 million, and the runner-up will get $1.067 million.

Brooks Koepka received $2.16 million for winning the U.S. Open last month, and Sergio Garcia won $1.98 million at the Masters. Last year's Open champion, Henrik Stenson, received about $1.53 million (converting from 1.175 million pounds).
