2012 Masters Purse: How Much Did Bubba Watson Earn With His Win?


Edit: Here is the full 2013 Masters prize money list.

A jacket isn't the only green thing you get after winning the Masters: there's also money. Lots and lots of money. Bubba Watson's playoff win over Louis Oosthuizen earned him $1,440,000 - or $576,000 more than Oosthuizen made. Those in the four-way tie for third will earn $284,000, a split of the third-, fourth-, fifth- and sixth-place pots.

In all, the top-10 players from this year's Masters will take home a significant amount of money, with each earning $244,000 or more. And for Watson, his playoff win nets him a green jacket, a lifetime exemption into The Masters and almost $1.5 million to boot.

Here's the payouts for those who finished in the top 10 of the leaderboard. These are unofficial, counted by hand, and we'll update with the official earnings as we get them.
