2021 US Open Purse and Prize Money Breakdown

It’s that time of the year again. In 2020, Bryson DeChambeau won the US Open at Winged Foot Golf Club West Course and as a prize for his feat, he pocketed a stunning total of $2.25 million. DeChambeau finished the tournament with six-under 274. Of course, DeChambeau will be looking to win again and become the first back-to-back winner of the US Open since Brooks Koepka did that not too long ago, Koepka earned over $4 million when he won the tournament in 2017 and defended his crown successfully in 2018. So, who’s going to take home the biggest cut of the purse this coming weekend at Torrey Pines?

The Total Payout | $12.5 Million

The purse remains the same as last year’s, but who’s complaining? It’s still $12.5 million with the winner set to cash in a check worth $2.25 million. Finish second and you’d still take home $1.362 million.  The first time the US Open was held in 1895, Horace Rawlins pocketed $150 for his victory. In 19885, Andy North won his second US Open title and became the first player to earn $100,000 in a single US Open, having received a winner’s share worth $103,000. Tiger Woods was the first US Open golfer to win $1 million when he did so in 2002.
