Plenty of green was up for grabs at the 2023 Masters not only in the form of the famed green jacket awarded to Jon Rahm, winner of this year's tournament, but also in regards to the prize money being paid out from a record-setting pool. Augusta National Golf Club announced Saturday the purse for the 2023 Masters totaling $18 million. This marks a new tournament high for the largest prize fund ever awarded to players at one of the nation's most pristine venues.

This year's Masters purse represents a $3 million increase from the $15 million handed out in 2022. Rahm will take home $3.24 million -- $630,000 more than defending champion Scottie Scheffler, signifying the largest year-over-year increase in tournament history. A solo runner-up would have claimed nearly $2 million, a larger sum than either Danny Willett (2016) or Jordan Spieth (2015) earned for winning the green jacket.

This astronomical payout is nothing new, and it trickles down the field as the entire top 10 will cash checks for north of $480,000, while everyone in the top 34 will claim at least six figures.

An interesting wrinkle on this year's Masters leaderboard was amateur Sam Bennett, who did not receive a cash prize upon completion of this tournament despite being among the top golfers in the field most of the week. If the reigning U.S. Amateur Champion was able to somehow pull off the impossible and win, the second-place finisher would have instead received the winner's purse.
