U.S. Open purse 2013: Justin Rose wins $1.44 million

Ross Kinnaird

Rose held on to win the 2013 U.S. Open, and as a result will take home a check worth close to $1.5 million.

Justin Rose was able to overcome rain and difficult course conditions at the Merion Golf Club to win the 2013 U.S. Open, and now he will be rewarded handsomely. By holding off a crowded leaderboard, Rose will take home the first-place prize worth $1.44 million.

Rose shot an even-par 70 in the final round to win the first major championship of his career. He played well early, finishing the front nine at 1-under, and was able to navigate Merion's difficult closing stretch well enough to hang on for the one-stroke victory over Phil Mickelson. Rose bogeyed the final two holes on Saturday, but managed to play the 17th and 18th at even par on Sunday to secure the victory.

As it did during the first three rounds, Merion got the better of most players on Sunday. Golfers near the top of the leaderboard struggled to make pars down the stretch, with falling rain only making matters more difficult. Players moved up and down the leaderboard with hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake — not to mention the U.S. Open title.

For the sixth time in his career, Mickelson finished as the runner-up in the U.S. Open. Although he wasn't able to capture his first U.S. Open title, Mickelson will take home a check worth nearly $700,000. While the finish was worth a small fortune, it isn't likely to be much of a consolation prize for Mickelson, who has made close to $70 million in PGA Tour winnings during his career.

Players able to overcome conditions well enough to finish in the top 10 will all take home at least $200,000. Each of the top three finishers will receive a check worth more than $500,000.
