2011 Masters Payouts: How Much Did Charl Schwartzel Earn With His Win?

With a Masters win and green jacket comes a significant financial windfall, and Charl Schwartzel will receive a large payday for his Augusta National Golf Club victory on Sunday. The Masters purse increased to $8 million this year, making a win, or even a finish in the money, incredibly lucrative for those lucky enough to make it to the weekend. But it’s Schwartzel who’s in-line to take home a sizable check after his final round 66 propelled him to a Masters win.

Schwartzel will receive $1.44 million of the $8 million dollar purse. To put it in perspective, Phil Mickelson pocketed $1.35 million, making this the largest prize to date. Second place takes home a cool $864,000, with third place awarded $544,000. Since Jason Day and Adam Scott tied for second, the prizes for second and third will be combined, then divided into two.

The rest of the purse distribution can be found here. Note that just making the weekend as one of the top-48 golfers comes with a payday of $21,000.
