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

At the 2021 U.S. Open, the world’s best golfers will compete for glory at the Torrey Pines South Course in San Diego.

While the golfers may be competing for prestige above all else, they’ll still be pretty happy with the hefty payday that a win could deliver to them.

At least year’s U.S. Open, winner Bryson DeChambeau took home a sum of $2.25 million. That ranks as the highest payout for any of golf’s four major tournaments, and will surely be an added bonus for those in contention at Torrey Pines.

DeChambeau will have a chance to defend his title, but the world’s No. 5 player will have to stave off competition from a tough field that includes the likes of Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm, the top-three players in the world. And, of course, he’ll be battling his rival Brooks Koepka, who won back-to-back U.S. Opens in 2018 and ’19.

But even if DeChambeau can’t emerge with a win, he should be in the running for a hefty chunk of the U.S. Open’s big purse.

Here’s the full breakdown of the 2021 U.S. Open purse, including winner’s share and how it compares to previous years and majors.

U.S. Open purse 2021

The U.S. Open will remain the most lucrative of golf’s four majors. The 2021 U.S. Open will feature a $12.5 million purse. This matches the event’s purse from last year, which saw Bryson DeChambeau take home a $2.25 million winner’s share at Winged Foot golf course

How much money does the winner get?

The winner’s share at the 2021 U.S. Open is expected to be $2.25 million, the same as it was for last year’s tournament. Of PGA Tour events, only the Tour Championship ($15 million) and the Players’ Championship ($2.7 million) pay more than the U.S. Open.
