The Total Payout | $11.5 Million

The last man to win the British Open Championship was Shane Lowry in 2019. For that win, he took home $1.935 million out of the total purse that’s worth $10.75 million. But this year, the pot gets richer, as mentioned earlier, with the total purse for the 2021 British Open now at $11.5 million. The winner will cash in a check worth $2.07 million, which is almost double what Bobby Bonilla gets to take home every July 1st. The first player to earn a million dollars from winning the British Open was Zach Johnson, who won the Claret Jug and $1.15 million at St. Andrews in 2015
