British Open 2021 purse, payouts: How much prize money does the winner make?

Major tournament, major bucks.

Players entering the 2021 British Open can expect a pretty nice payday. With the amount of prize money being upped a million U.S. dollars since the last time the British Open was played, players can take home a nice check (or cheque) once the tourney wraps.

The Open Championship matches up to the 2021 Masters when it comes to total prize money, but still lags behind the PGA Championship and the U.S. Open just a bit.

Still, there’s more than enough green to go around. Here’s what players will take home this weekend:
