U.S. Open: Winner’s Payout, Prize Money and Purse Breakdown

The U.S. Open is the third major championship of the season, and traditionally the most difficult.

In 2024, Bryson DeChambeau outlasted Rory McIlroy in a dramatic final few holes to capture his second U.S. Open title, while taking home a lump some of cash.

Continue reading for all you need to know about the U.S. Open purse, winner's payout, and more.

How much does the winner of the U.S. Open get?

Bryson DeChambeau took home a record payout of $4.3 million for winning the 2024 U.S. Open.

This increased from Wyndham Clark's $3.6 million won for topping the leaderboard in 2023.

How much does the U.S. Open runner-up get?

For the second-straight year, Rory McIlroy finished runner-up at the U.S. Open, and took home $2.322 million for his efforts in 2024.

In 2023, McIlroy collected $2.16 million for finishing second in Los Angeles.

Payouts and prize money for top finishers at the U.S. Open

Top-10 Finishers Prize Money (2024)

1.  Bryson DeChambeau – $4.3 million

2.  Rory McIlroy – $2.322 million

T3. Tony Finau, Patrick Cantlay – $1,445,062 (each get $1,229,051)

5. Mattieu Pavon - $843,765

6. Hideki Matsuyama - $748,154

T7. Xander Schauffele, Russell Henley - $674,491 (each get $639,289)

T9. Davis Thompson, Corey Conners, Sam Burns - $546,720 (each get $502,391)

You might be wondering why some players took home less than what they should have for where they finished.

For ties, the players split the sum of the prize money for their finishing position and all subsequent spots that no player finished in. So for third-place finishers, they split the sum of the third, fourth and fifth-place prize, hence why their share is less than if they had finished alone in third.

Do players that miss the cut at the U.S. Open get paid?

Golfers that don’t make the weekend at the U.S. Open will each receive a $10,000 payout.

In a normal PGA Tour event, players who miss the halfway cut wouldn’t normally get any prize money.

What is the total purse for the U.S. Open?

With the increase in prize money, the total purse for the 2024 U.S. Open reached $21.5 million.

The 2025 U.S. Open purse is expected to increase from that number.
