Augusta National Announces Prize Money Payout, Purse For 2020 Masters

It's the second-most lucrative PGA tournament of the year

by

With the pride and prestige that comes along with winning the Masters, the prize money is almost an afterthought.

But make no mistake about it, whoever takes home this year’s coveted green jacked or gets access to the Champions locker room at Augusta National will also eagerly claim the payout.

And on Saturday, the club announced just how much the winner of the 2020 tournament is set to earn.

Similar to 2019, the overall purse remains $11.5 million this year with the champion making $2,070,000. That makes it the second-highest pot of the year, behind just the 2020 U.S. Open which had a total pay out of $12.5 million with winner Bryson DeChambeau taking home $2,250,000 million.
