How much money does Morikawa get for winning the British Open?

The American takes most of a total loot of 8.2 million pounds (9.5 euros). Jon Rahm, third, takes 495,000 pounds (about 578,000 euros).


The British Open, the last major of the golf season, was resolved this Sunday with the victory of the American Collin Morikawa. His triumph at Royal St. George's, the Sandwich course that has hosted the tournament this year, canceled by the pandemic in 2020, will earn Morikawa the most succulent part of a total loot of 8.2 million pounds (9.5 of euros). Specifically, it will bag 1.4 'kilos' in pounds, which are just over 1.6 in euros.

As runner-up, Jordan Spieth is entitled to 864,926 pounds (just over one million euros); the third parties, Jon Rahm and the South African Louis Oosthuizen will be given a check for 495,401 pounds (about 578,000 euros); another South African, Dylan Frittelli, is credited with 348,424 pounds (just over 406,000 euros). Sergio García, the other Spaniard who made the cut, seized 79,000 pounds (about 92,000 euros) .

The prize money has grown by 725,000 pounds this year compared to last year, although it is still the major that pays the worst to its participants together with the Masters, which puts exactly the same figure at stake. An interesting fact is that the amount has grown more than double since the last time the tournament was played at Royal St. George's, in 2011, when 5 million pounds (5.8 euros at current exchange rates) were distributed.
