2023 Masters prize money and purse: $18 million in payouts to go to Jon Rahm
The 2023 Masters had plenty of green, both in terms of the fabled green jacket given to Jon Rahm, the tournament’s victor this year, and in terms of the prize money handed from a pool that set records. The 2023 Masters will have a $18 million purse, Augusta National Golf Club said on Saturday. At one of the most pristine sites in the country, this sets a new competition record for the biggest prize pool ever given to competitors.
The Masters purse for this year is up $3 million from the $15 million awarded in 2022. Rahm will win $3.24 million, which is $630,000 more than Scottie Scheffler, the defending champion, and represents the biggest year-over-year increase in tournament history. A single runner-up would have received around $2 million, which is more money than Danny Willett (2016) or Jordan Spieth (2015) were paid for taking home the green jacket.
The whole top 10 will collect checks totaling more than $480,000, and everyone in the top 34 will take home at least six figures. This enormous payoff is nothing new, and it cascades down the field.
Sam Bennett, an amateur, made an unexpected change to the Masters leaderboard this year. Despite finishing the tournament among the top players in the field for the majority of the week, Bennett did not receive a financial award. The winner’s prize would have gone to the second-place finisher if the current U.S. Amateur Champion had managed to win despite all odds.
