Masters 2013 payout: Winning share is $1.44 million

Mike Ehrmann

The Masters' $8 million purse will be divided up soon and a number of players will come away with a six-figure check.

Edit: Here is the full 2013 Masters prize money list

The final round of the 2013 Masters is coming to an end and in addition to the green jacket, the winner will also receive a check worth nearly $1.5 million. It won't just be the champion cashing in either as the top eight finishers will walk away with a quarter of a million dollars or more.

With a total purse of $8 million, the Masters payout will once again be one of the largest in golf. The top three finishers will walk away with at least $500,000 while the top 20 finishers will receive a check for $100,000 or more. The exact payout is impossible to project as ties will factor in, but here's the slotted payout for the top 10 finishers, via

1st $1,440,000

2nd $864,000

3rd $544,000

4th $384,000

5th $320,000

6th $288,000

7th $268,000

8th $248,000

9th $232,000

10th $216,000

A runner-up finish will always leave players wondering "what if" but coming up just short of the green jacket will also leave one player with nearly $600,000 less in his bank account. As Bubba Watson proved, the winning share of the Masters will allow you to buy a lot of cool things, like hovercraft golf carts.

Ties will ultimately factor into the final payout. If two players are tied, the prize money allotted for their spot on the leaderboard will be combined, then averaged. For example. if two players were tied for ninth place, the prize for ninth ($232,000) and the prize for 10th ($216,000) would be averaged and each player would receive $224,000.

Tianlang Guan, who finished at 12-over for the tournament, would have been in line to receive more than $20,000, but as an amateur, he will not receive a payout.
