Masters 2021 purse, payout breakdown: How much prize money does the winner make?

Published

on

Winning any of golf’s four majors is an incredible accomplishment, but there is something special about finishing atop the leaderboard at the Masters. The winner from the previous year placing the green jacket on the most recent champion is one of the coolest traditions in sports.

Oh, and taking home a gigantic check must be pretty nice, too.

Even for the golfers who don’t have great performances at Augusta National, making the cut and playing four rounds can result in a solid payout. Just last year, the four players who finished tied for 51st each walked away with $28,003 — not bad at all for a few days of work.

What’s on the line at this year’s event? Here is the full breakdown of the 2021 Masters Tournament purse, including how much money the winner will earn.

Masters Tournament purse 2021

The purse at the 2021 Masters is expected to be the same as last year: $11.5 million. That is the second-largest purse of any major, behind only the U.S. Open’s $12.5 million.

How much money does the winner get?

Based on that total, the winner’s share of the prize money would be $2.07 million, the same amont Dustin Johnson took home in November.

WrestleMania 37 live match grades, results, highlights from WWE’s Night 2

Published

on

After a historic Night 1, WrestleMania 37 will conclude Sunday night with a highly anticipated WWE Universal championship triple-threat match between defending champion Roman Reigns, 2021 Royal Rumble winner Edge and Daniel Bryan.

Reigns has had a stranglehold on the title since returning to WWE last summer but he finds new opposition in Edge, who made his comeback from an injury to win the 30-man over-the-top battle royal last January and get his shot at WWE gold. Bryan has also found his way into the match after giving Reigns hell over the past month, much to Edge’s chagrin.

This fantastic rivalry will culminate with a showdown in WWE’s annual “Showcase of the Immortals,” between three competitors who have something in common. 

Edge and Bryan have made remarkable comebacks after retiring because of career-threatening injuries, while Reigns overcame leukemia to make his way back to the squared circle. Nobody in this trio will take anything for granted, but only one can come out on top. 

Other matches include Big E defending his Intercontinental championship against Apollo Crews in a Nigerian Drum Fight, Riddle putting his United States championship on the line against Sheamus, The Fiend looking to get his revenge against Randy Orton, and plenty of other action.

Stay tuned as Sporting News provides live updates following each match with a recap and grades.

The Masters: Hideki Matsuyama survives late mistakes to win first men’s major for Japan

Published

on

After being six clear with seven holes to play, Hideki Matsuyama survived a nervy finish and a last charge from Xander Schauffele to create Masters, and major history at Augusta National.

Last Updated: 12/04/21 12:10am

Hideki Matsuyama is the first Japanese player to win a men’s major

Hideki Matsuyama overcame a nervy start and a pressure-induced back-nine stutter to become the first Japanese player to win a men’s major with a one-shot victory at the 85th Masters

His overnight four-stroke lead was quickly reduced to one when he bogeyed the first and Will Zalatoris started with a pair of birdies, but Matsuyama restored his composure and looked set for a back-nine procession when he led by six with seven holes to play.

But Schauffele then made four straight birdies from the 12th while Matsuyama made a huge error with his second to the 15th, airmailing the green with his adrenaline-fuelled second and finding the water over the back, leading to a bogey-six which had his lead whittled down to just two.

However, Schauffele then took an aggressive line to the short 16th and came up a fraction short, his ball kicking left, missing the bunker and finding the lake, easing the pressure on the long-time leader as he knocked a safe tee shot to the right side of the green, although he then three-putted from the top tier.

Schauffele compounded his initial error by going over the back of the green with his third and he needed three more to get down, running up a triple-bogey six which ended his Masters hopes for another year, while Matsuyama looked to regroup having slipped to 11 under with Zalatoris in the clubhouse on nine under par.

The leader steadied himself with a rock-solid par at the 17th, hammered a perfect drive up the last before causing himself more consternation when he blocked his tentative approach into the bunker to the right of the green.

But he was all smiles moments later after splashing out to six feet, and missing the par putt mattered little as he left a tap-in for a momentous win, 10 years on from his first visit to the Butler Cabin as the leading amateur in the 2011 Masters.

Any expectations of coasting to victory were quashed as early as the opening hole, when Matsuyama carved a fairway-wood way right and started with a five, just after Zalatoris had made birdie at the second from the front bunker to close within one.

But the American erred at the next and Matsuyama replied with a four of his own at the second, and he was content to grind out the pars as his rivals fell away one by one, with Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose and Marc Leishman unable to match the scoring of Jon Rahm, who raced round in 66 to close on six under.

Matsuyama pulled further ahead with birdies at the eighth and ninth to go five clear at the turn, although he would not get through Amen Corner unscathed as he dropped his second shot of the day at the 12th, only to get it back at 13th despite a wild drive and a pulled second that threatened to disappear into the Azaleas.

Xander Schauffele piled on the pressure until coming to grief at the 16th

The 29-year-old pitched it close and made the putt to get back to 13 under in the midst of Schauffele’s valiant charge, which came to an abrupt halt three holes from home.

Shane Lowry expects to be without regular caddie for next two majors and may stay in US until The Open

Published

on

Shane Lowry expecting to be without his caddie and support team until he defends his Open title in July due to coronavirus restrictions that could jeopardise the Irish Open.

Last Updated: 11/04/21 11:04pm

Shane Lowry is unlikely to return to Europe until The Open

Shane Lowry doubts he will return to Europe until he defends his Open title in July and feels his home Irish Open “could be in trouble” due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Lowry closed out the Masters with a 72 to finish on level par for the week at Augusta National, but he is now looking for a replacement caddie with Bo Martin heading home to Ireland along with other members of Lowry’s support team.

The Open champion now resides in Florida and plans to remain on the PGA Tour until heading to Royal St George’s in July, appearing resigned to the Irish Open being in doubt due to quarantine regulations.

“I’m playing at Hilton Head next week, but I have no idea what I’m going to do after that,” said Lowry. “My caddie has to go home, and he can’t work next week because of this new quarantine they’ve brought in in Ireland from the States. Who knows when I’ll be able to go home to Ireland, and if I’ll be able to go home to Ireland?

“So I have no idea what my schedule is going to be leading up to The Open, but it’s definitely going to be mostly over here. I don’t know if I’ll get back to play in Europe at all.

“If you look at what the Irish government are out there doing, I think the Irish Open is going to be in trouble because they are out there putting France, Germany, and the US on a quarantine for two weeks. So I don’t know what’s going to happen there.”

Lowry is now in the market for a temporary caddie until he can reunite with Martin at The Open, insisting he would not want his long-time bagman to spend two weeks in quarantine if he returned to the US ahead of the PGA Championship.

“I know things are tough for everybody at the minute, but my coach and my team are going home, and I probably won’t see them until The Open,” he added. “It’s not great, because I want them over here for the big tournaments, the PGA and the US Open. We’ll see what happens. I don’t know.

“Maybe there will be exemptions or something. We are an Olympic sport now. Maybe we should get an exemption. I have no idea.

“Bo is waiting on his second dose of vaccine back home, I think, and he needs to go home and get everything sorted. I don’t expect anyone to spend two weeks in a hotel for me in quarantine. I’m not going to do it, so I don’t expect anyone else to do it.

“There’s a couple of guys who aren’t playing next week and they’re out there looking for a job. So I’ll find a caddie out there somewhere.”
