British Open 2017: Prize money totals $10.25 million

The total prize money for the 146th Open Championship will be $10.25 million, with the winner receiving $1.845 million to go along with the Claret Jug.

Golf’s third major of the season is set for July 20-23 at Royal Birkdale in Southport, England.

The prize money will be based on dollars. The value of the British pound has been negatively affected by last year’s Brexit vote.

“We are operating in an increasingly global marketplace and have made the decision to award the prize fund in U.S. dollars in recognition of the fact that it is the most widely adopted currency for prize money in golf,” R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said in a statement Wednesday.

In comparison, Brooks Koepka earned $2.16 million for his U.S. Open victory and Sergio Garcia got $1.98 million after winning the Masters.
