How much has the game of golf grown since Tiger Woods had “A Win For The Ages” at Augusta in 1997? The $2.7 million the winner of the 2022 Masters will receive is more than what was paid out to the whole field when Tiger won by 12 shots in 1997.

This is a record-setting prize pool from the members of Augusta National Golf Club in 2022, with a total of $15 million up for grabs for the 52 golfers that made the cut for the weekend.

And if you don’t make the Top 50 listed below, don’t worry, you’re still going home with at least $35,000 for four days worth of work. It’s not a bad paycheck when you remember that the pimento cheese sandwiches are just $1.50 each as well.

Here’s what the breakdown looks like based off this tweet from golf journalist Geoff Shackelford:
