The Champion Golfer of the year gets the Claret Jug and the first place prize money, second place gets the silver salver and the second place prize money and the leading amateur (who makes the cut) gets the silver medal but no prize money. The rest of the field get their allocation of the prize money, depending on how they finished. Those who missed the cut still get a share of the purse, but it's not very much.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Among fairly active players I would say that's mostly Colin Montgomerie, who played in 72 majors, finishing second in 5 of them. Lee Westwood, the first player to earn a top-3 in each major before winning one of them, has played in 60. Sergio Garcia and Steve Stricker have played 58, and Luke Donald has participated in 39.

What is the breakdown of prize money for the British Open?

Asked by Wiki User

For the 2013 year:The top 50 players are paid a combined $8 million.

1st: $1.4 million

2nd: $826,874

3rd: $531,020

4th: $413,437

5th: $333,784

6th: $288,268

7th: $246,545

8th: $208,615

9th: $182,064

10th: $166,892

The 50th-place finisher won $22,378.

For the 2010 year:For 2010: The total purse has risen by £600,000, to take the amount to £4.8 million...

The defending champion, Stuart Cink, took home £750,000 last year, but Louis Oosthuizen will collect £850,000 this year. The rise in the purse is apparently due to the weak pound against the US Dollar and the Euro. Second-placed Lee Westwood will take home £500,000 and even the player at the bottom of the leaderboard after the final round will still collect £2,250.

Mcdowell-$1,350,000; Havret-$810,000; Els-$480,687; Woods and Michelson-$303,119 each; Love and Kuchar-$228,255 each

For the 2008 year:The total prize fund for the 2008 Open Championship will be £4.2 million, the same as in 2007. That equates to just over $8.3 million, or €5.25 million.

Prize money for the winner will also remain the same as in 2007. The player who lifts the Claret Jug at Royal Birkdale will receive £750,000 - that's equivalent to US$1.49 million or €939,000.

Padrig Harrington won the 2008 Open Championship and $1,498,875

Ian Poulter came in 2nd place and won $899,325

Henrik Stenson and Greg Norman came in tied for 3rd place and each won $509,618

Jim Furyk tied for 5th and won $359,730

There was a total of $8,169,179 awarded to the 83 players who made the cut.

Two amateurs finished in the top 83, Chris Wood (Tied for 5th) and Thomas Sherreard (Tied for 19th) but they do not get any prize money.
