Golf’s highest-paying major will take place this week.

The 2020 U.S. Open features not only the richest purse among golf’s majors, but also the richest winner’s share. The first recipient of that profitable payout is **Gary Woodland**, who made over $2 million last season by winning the event with a score of 271 (13-under-par).

That said, look for golfers such as **Dustin Johnson** (2020 FedEx Cup playoffs winner), **Brooks **Koepka (winner of the 2017, ’18 U.S. Opens) and more to challenge for that payout this season. Again, even golfers who finish at the bottom of the cut line will make a pretty penny (by non-golfer standards); last year’s last-place finishers made over $21,000.

Below is the full breakdown of the 2020 U.S. Open purse, including winner’s share and how it compares to previous years and majors.

## U.S. Open purse 2020

The purse at the 2020 U.S. Open is **$12.5 million**, the same as last season. That is the largest sum of money of any major played this season, including the Masters ($11.5 million) and PGA Championship ($11 million).

## How much money does the winner get?

The first-place finisher at last year’s tournament, Gary Woodland, made **$2.25 million**; the 2020 winner will make that sum as well. Much like the tournament purse, the U.S. Open winner’s share eclipses those of the Masters ($2.07 million) and PGA Championship ($1.98 million).
