2022 US Open Scholarship, Prize Money: Payout for Matt Fitzpatrick, Every Golfer from a Record Pool of .5 Million

Money talks — as always in the golf world — and the USGA had a lot going on this week when CEO Mike Whan announced a significant increase in the US Open stock market for 2022 on Wednesday. The US Open grows $5 million year over year and pays out $17.5 million to those who hit the weekend discount. That is officially the largest fair in the history of the major championship.

Matt Fitzpatrick took advantage of those surging funds, winning the US Open by one stroke over Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler. In doing so, Fitzpatrick claimed a $3.15 million winner’s share, nearly $500,000 more than the Masters and PGA championships paid to respective champions Scottie Scheffler and Justin Thomas ($2.7 million) as part of their $2.7 million purse. 15 million.

Jon Rahm, the 2021 US Open champion, took home $2.25 million, so the annual increase in the USGA was $900,000. Still, the top prize wasn’t the biggest this year, as Cameron Smith already took home a record $3.6 million for his win at The Players Championship in March.

Not only was the increased US Open prize money good news for those competing for the national championship, but even those who finished in the top 20 will receive a significant amount. All top 20 finishers will receive north of $200,000 for their trouble tackling The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Let’s take a look at how much the 2022 US Open payouts will be split among the top 60 players.
