How much will each player earn at Pebble Beach this week?
The total money available from the 2019 US Open prize money has been increased by $500,000 compared to last year to take the total prize purse to $12,500,000.
This has seen an increase to Gary Woodland’s winners’ share to $2.25 million which is more than $100,000 more than what Brooks Koepka pocketed at Shinnecock Hills in 2018.
The increase in prize money at this year’s tournament means it offers the joint most prize money in golf with the Players Championship which was won by Rory McIlroy this year.
US Open prize money has increased significantly since Graeme McDowell’s maiden major win in 2010 on the Monterrey Peninsula.
The Northern Irishman pocketed $1.35 million for his victory and there was a total prize purse of $7.5 million on offer to all players.
