US Open 2022 is going to start on June 6 at the Country Club. Here, you will know the full prize money payout of the US Open Golf tournament.
US Open 2022 Purse and Payout:
Mike Whan, the CEO of the USGA, made the announcement during a news conference he held on Wednesday afternoon that the total prize purse for this year will be increased by $5 million.
This indicates that there will be a total of $17.5 million available for prizes this year. The winner of this year’s tournament will take home $3.15 million, which is an increase from the $2.25 million.
The total of $17.5 million is the biggest for any Major in the annals of sports betting history. In point of fact, it will be the very first Major to cross the $15 million thresholds.
The prize money for the PGA Championship, which was held in March at Southern Hills, and the Masters, which was held in April at Augusta National, was identically calculated.
The massive rise in the amount of money up for grabs at this year’s US Open can be attributed, at the very least in part, to the LIV Golf Invitational Series, which still offers more money in each of its regular events than is being offered at this week’s tournament the prize money at the US Women’s Open virtually double to $10 million this year.
In the meantime, the amount of money up for grabs at the Chevron Championship increased from $3.1 million to $5 million. Despite this, the prize money for The Players Championship remains $20 million, making it the most lucrative tournament on the PGA Tour.
