After winning the 2019 British Open on Sunday at Royal Portrush, Shane Lowry is going home with one heck of a paycheck. His six-shot victory at 15-under earned Lowry $1.935 million, a raise from the $1.89 million that 2018 Champion Golfer of the Year Francesco Molinari walked away with last year. And after winning his first major title, the 32-year-old Irishman deserves every single penny.

But Lowry isn’t the only player to leave Northern Ireland with a nice payday. Tommy Fleetwood, who finished second to Lowry at nine-under, earned $1.12 million. Third-place finisher Tony Finau at seven-under took home $718,000 from the fourth and final major of the year.

Here’s the final payout breakdown for the field at the 2019 British Open at Royal Portrush.
