While the Masters purse is not the most money a player can win on tour, there are plenty of perks to being a Masters champion.
You get the green jacket, a replica of the Masters trophy and a gold medal.
A Masters win gives you a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour, and a five-year exemption into the U.S. Open, British Open, and PGA Championship.
You also receive an invitation to the following year's Tournament of Champions, which takes place in Maui at the Kapaula Resort during the first week of January and is reserved only for PGA Tour winners.
Perhaps the single greatest benefit of winning the Masters is - you receive a lifetime exemption into the tournament and an honorary membership into the most storied and prestigious club in the country.
You also have the honor of choosing the menu for the Champions Dinner the next year, and an invitation to attend every year after that.
The 65 men who made the cut this weekend at Augusta National will split up an $11.5 million purse, up $500,000 from a year ago. While Patrick Reed took home $1.98 million along with a green jacket for his victory last year, the winner this week will pocket $2.07 million while the runner-up will make $1.242 million.
Here’s a look at the prize breakdown for the top 50 places, with everyone finishing 51st and below splitting the remaining purse:
