Like all the major championships, the 2024 U.S. Open purse has increased significantly over the years, and it made another jump this year.

Thanks to LIV and the introduction of Signature Events on the PGA Tour, purses have risen astronomically across the board in pro golf. But the major championships have their own history of keeping up with the Joneses.

Just three years ago, in 2021, the U.S Open purse was set at $12.5 million — the biggest prize pot of all four majors. Two years ago, the 2022 U.S. Open purse increased to $17.5 million — a $5 million increase. And last year, the 2023 U.S. Open purse jumped yet again to a whopping total of $20 million, an increase of $2.5 million from the previous year. (The Players Championship remains the richest purse in golf at a total of $25 million.)

This year, the 2024 U.S. Open purse increased again to a total of $21.5 million — an increase of $1.5 million. If you’re keeping track at home, the math is pretty eye-popping: In just three years, the U.S. Open purse has increased by $9 million — that’s 72 percent!

That means there’s also a seriously nice increase in the winner’s cut too. This year’s U.S. Open champion will surpass the payout received by 2023 champion Wyndham Clark by $700,000, with a $4.3 million total payday — the largest ever for a major champion. The runner-up will receive a cool $2.322 million, third place will get $1.445 million, and fourth place will clear seven figures too, with a payout of $1.013 million.

Even the players who missed the cut receive a payout of $10,000 each. So how much did the rest of the players in the field come away with this year? You can find a complete list of the 2024 U.S. Open payouts for each player below.
