The American pocketed the best part of a total loot of 12.5 million dollars (about 10.5 euros). Rahm and Cabrera Bello's check, six figures.


The first major of the season, the US Open held at the Machiavellian Winged Foot in New York (USA) crowned the gunner Bryson DeChambeau as the successor to Brooks Koepka. The Californian won a big one for the first time in his career and with it a succulent check for 12.5 million dollars (about 10.5 euros) destined in total to prizes.

DeChambeau will receive 2.25 million dollars (1.9 euros) for his win. If we look at the amounts that the first champions, such as Ben Hogan, $ 4,000 at the time in 1950, or Dustin Johnson, 1.8 million, almost half less than now, in 2016, we can see the beastly growth that the company has had. economic investment in the flag tournament of the USGA, the American Federation. Matthew Wolff, second classified, accesses 1.35 million dollars (slightly more than 1.1 euros) and the South African Louis Oosthuizen, third, to 859,812 dollars (725,900 euros) .

Since 1950, when the total amount allocated to golfers of $ 5,000 with the value of that time, the figure grew to 6.8 million in 2006, well into the 21st century, and has practically doubled in 14 years, with the manna of the great sponsors and the commercialization of the television rights of a tournament that sells for the curiosity of seeing the best players in the world tortured.
