2020 Masters prize money, purse: Payouts, winnings from $11.5 million pool as Dustin Johnson wins $2 million

Winning the Masters is worth far more than any amount of money you could possibly attain for the victory, but boy, the payout is pretty great, too. The 2020 Masters purse was again set at $11.5 million for the second straight year with the winner taking home 18% of that sum for mastering the Augusta National course and taking home a green jacket.

That winner is Dustin Johnson, who not only triumphed at the Masters but did so by setting the scoring record at Augusta National Golf Club with a 20-under 268. Johnson’s 20 under is also the lowest score to par in major championship history.

It is the second straight year that a Masters champion will earn more than $2 million, and while you won’t get a green jacket, the second place prize of $1.24 million is not that shabby, either. That’s more than can be earned by the champion of many PGA Tour events any given season.

The Masters purse is so impressive that the third-place finisher would receive as much as the entire field did when Jack Nicklaus won the 1986 Masters.

In addition to the winner’s purse and green jacket, the winner each year brings home a sterling silver replica Masters trophy and gold medal for being the champion. Johnson also earned three crystal vases (low score in Rounds 1, 3 and 4) and two pairs of crystal highball glasses for the eagles he made this week.

Still, while one of the last things Johnson was thinking about come Sunday afternoon is how much money would hit his bank account next week, it’s still pretty great work … if you can get it.

Here’s a look at all the prize money and payouts for the 84th Masters.
