Simply qualifying for the U.S. Open has its perks. Along with playing at Pebble Beach Golf Links for a week straight, even if you didn’t make the cut, the USGA was shelling out $10,000 a piece.
However, making the cut and playing well, as always, is rewarded in a major way.
This year, the U.S. Open prize purse reached $12.5 million with Gary Woodland taking home $2.25 million for claiming his first major championship. While Brooks Kopeka didn’t win his third U.S. Open this week, he did take home a sizable check — $1.35 million.
In 22 career majors, @BKoepka has earned over $11.5m, averaging over $525,000 per start ?
