Masters 2020 prize money: How much can Woods, McIlory, DeChambeau win?

The iconic course of Augusta National in Georgia has served up plenty of memorable Masters tournaments over the years. And none more so in recent times than Tiger Woods’ sensational victory last year to win his 15th major title.

As well as claimin a fifth green jacket, Woods also took home the top prize of $2,070,000 (£1.56m).

“I’m a little hoarse from yelling,” the American said afterwards.

“I was just trying to plod my way around all day then all of a sudden I had the lead.

“Coming up 18 I was just trying to make a five. When I tapped in I don’t know what I did, I know I screamed.

“To have my kids there, it’s come full circle. My dad was here in 1997 and now I’m the dad with two kids there.

“It will be up there with one of the hardest I’ve had to win because of what has transpired in the last couple of years.”

As Woods looks to defend his title, Express Sport takes a look at the prize money on offer this year.
