The Masters places second in terms of the four Majors total prize money, with the US Open offering the most with $12 million. Last year’s champion Brooks Koepka picked up a whopping $2.16 million as he claimed his maiden major title.

The Open Championship offers the least with just below the USPGA’s total prize pool – although that could change this year.

The first winner of the Masters back in 1934 was Horton Smith and he won $1,500 – while the first time the winner’s prize hit a million dollars was when Tiger Woods won the event back in 2001 – could he take home the first $2 million prize as well???
