2022 U.S. Open purse, prize money: Payout for each golfer from new record $17.5 million pool

Read Time:7 Minute, 19 Second


Money talks — as always in the world of golf — and the USGA had plenty of talking to do this week when CEO Mike Whan announced Wednesday a significant increase to the 2022 U.S. Open purse. Growing by $5 million year over year, the U.S. Open will now pay out $17.5 million to those who made the weekend cut. That’s officially the largest purse in major championship history.

For reference, the Masters and PGA Championship each shelled out a $15 million this year with $2.7 million awarded to respective champions Scottie Scheffler and Justin Thomas. The winner of the U.S. Open will receive $3.15 million, up from the $2.25 million Jon Rahm took home last year. The first-place prize will not be the biggest paid out this year, however, as Cameron Smith already took home a record $3.6 million for his victory at The Players Championship in March.

Not only is the increased U.S. Open prize money welcomed news for those contending for the national championship, but even those sneaking into the top 20 by week’s end will receive a significant sum. All top 20 finishers will receive north of $200,000 for their troubles tackling The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Let’s take a look at how much the payouts for the 2022 U.S. Open will be divided among the top 60 players who make their way through to the weekend at The Country Club.
