2019 U.S. Open prize money, purse: Payouts, winnings for each golfer from $12.5 million pool

A massive $12.5 million is being awarded at the 119th United States Open, as it will be split between the 79 golfers who made this year's cut. This purse is the largest among the year's four majors -- tied for the biggest in golf (The Players Championship) -- with the Masters ($11.5 million), PGA Championship ($11 million) and Open Championship ($10.5 million) all following behind the U.S. Open. Of course, fewer golfers normally make the cut in those other majors, and this is the USGA's signature outing each season.

No one will bring home more money this year than Gary Woodland, who not only captured his first major championship by dominating Pebble Beach but also hauled in a cool $2.25 million. Runner-up Brooks Koepka, the event's back-to-back defending champion, claimed $1.35 million despite being unable to make history by three-peating the event for the first time in 114 years.

Let's take a look at how the prize money breaks down for the 2019 U.S. Open. Golfers that tie for a place will split an average of the combined winnings of their respective spots on the leaderboard.
