Money talks – as always in the world of golf – and the USGA had a lot of talk this week when CEO Mike Wang announced on Wednesday a significant purse increase for the 2022 US Open. The US Open has grown $5 million year-on-year and will now pay out $17.5 million, the largest prize pool in major championship history.

For reference, this year the Masters and PGA Championship each gave $15 million, with $2.7 million awarded to respective champions Scotty Sheffler and Justin Thomas. The winner of the US Open will receive $3.15 million compared to the $2.25 million John Rahm won last year. However, the first-place prize won’t be the biggest this year, as Cameron Smith took home a record $3.6 million for his Players Championship victory in March.

The increased US Open prize pool is not only good news for those who compete for the national championship, but even those who make it to the top 20 by the end of the week will receive a significant sum. All of the top 20 finishers will receive over $200,000 for their country club problems in Brooklyn, Massachusetts.
