How much money did each golfer who won one of the majors on 2013 make? The following is a list of the prize money earned by the golfers who won the Masters, the U.S. Open, the Open or British Open, and the PGA Championship in 2013.
In addition to the actual prize money won by the winners at each major in 2013, each player who won a major this year will also earn plenty of additional money from endorsements and appearances. Winning a major raises players profiles enabling them to earn big bucks off the course.
That is especially true for first time major winners, and there were three of them this year. All money is listed is in dollars, with British pounds being converted to dollars for the British Open prize money.
