2022 US Open purse, prize money: Payout for Matt Fitzpatrick, each golfer from record $17.5 million pool

Money talks – as always in the world of golf – and the USGA had plenty to talk about this week as CEO Mike Whan announced a significant increase in the 2022 US Open purse on Wednesday. The US Open, growing by $5 million year on year, will pay out $17.5 million to those who made the cut over the weekend. This is officially the largest purse in major championship history.

Matt Fitzpatrick capitalized on those rising funds to win the US Open by a shot over Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler. In doing so, Fitzpatrick claimed a $3.15 million winner’s share, almost $500,000 more than the Masters and PGA championships awarded to respective champions Scottie Scheffler and Justin Thomas ($2.7 million) as part of theirs $15 million exchanges have paid out.

2021 US Open champion Jon Rahm took home $2.25 million for a USGA year-over-year increase of $900,000. Still, the first-place prize wasn’t the biggest prize paid out this year, as Cameron Smith already took home a record $3.6 million for his win at The Players Championship in March.

Not only was the US Open’s increased prize money welcome news for those who have been battling for the national championship, but even those who made it into the top 20 will receive a sizeable sum. All top 20 finishers will receive more than $200,000 for their troubles finishing at the Brookline, Massachusetts Country Club.
