British Open 2019: Here’s the prize money payout for each golfer at Royal Portrush

PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland — You’re playing for the claret jug and the chance to be called the “Champion Golfer of the Year.” Those are pretty handsome rewards on their own. But after the Open Championship came to an end on Sunday night at Royal Portrush, the 73 golfers who made the cut also took home a tidy little financial reward.

That said, if you’re feeling like the R&A’s largesse isn’t largesse enough, consider what the British Open prize money payout and winner’s share was the last time the Open came to Royal Portrush in 1951. England’s Max Faulkner received £300 for his two-stroke win over Antonio Cerda, from a TOTAL prize money payout of £1,700 (or roughly $2,125). The last-place finisher this Sunday will receive $23,375 and any pro who teed off on Thursday at Royal Portrush, even if he didn’t make the cut, receives $5,000 for competing from the R&A.

OK, here’s what everybody who will play 72 holes this week gets to take home.
