Not only will the Masters winner get a freshly tailored green jacket and the trophy, a silver recreation of the Augusta National clubhouse, but he’ll also get a whole lotta dough.

The Masters announced a purse increase this year from $15 million to $18 million, which also ups the winner’s share to $3.24 million, a major championship record. Last year’s winner, Scottie Scheffler received a modest $2.7 million.

Winning shares at the Masters have increased considerably since Tiger Woods took home $486,000 for his iconic win in 1997. Woods became the first player ever to win $1 million by winning the Masters in 2001 when the winner’s share was $1,008,000.

The winning check slowly climbed over the next 18 years, before (you guessed it) Tiger Woods became the first winner to earn $2 million in a win, clearing $2,070,000 in 2019. The purse then increased again in 2022, bumping the winner’s share to $2.7 million before the latest increase this year.

And in case your wondering, the first Masters winner to earn $100,000 was Ben Crenshaw with $108,000 only 39 years ago in 1984. Since that year, the winner’s share has increased 3,000 percent.

You can stream the third and final rounds of the Masters via ESPN+, Masters.com and the Masters App, or you can watch the telecast on CBS starting at 8:30 a.m. ET for the third round and then 2 p.m. ET for the final round.
