Masters Purse 2019: How Much Prize Money Does the Winner Make?

Last year's Masters champion Patrick Reed has been lambasted for the charmless way he presented the famous green jacket to Tiger Woods.

"The Tour Championship is obviously the hottest 30 guys for the year, so to be able to do that against Rory and Rosey there gave me a lot of confidence going into this year". Woods has won at both courses. In his career, Nicklaus won the Masters six times, only one more than Woods.

Here's a quick look ahead.

"Tiger is back & will be winning Majors again!"

A record that could be broken as the 43-year old still clearly has a few good years left - even though Woods is now the second-oldest player to win golf's most prestigious tournament.

The fans, in a state of euphoria, were still chanting Tiger Woods' name in the aftermath of his Masters victory Sunday when Zach Johnson, the 2007 Masters victor, looked around the grounds from behind the clubhouse and took it all in.

Nike celebrated his victory by posting an ad on its website titled "Tiger Woods: Same Dream", which has received almost 500,000 views on YouTube in less than a day.

Watson, a Kansas City native who won the Masters in 1977 and 1981, said he liked what he saw when he had a chance to watch Woods practice earlier in the week. "It rained in 2002, too". So great for the game of golf.

Woods began the day two shots behind Italy's Francesco Molinari, and rode the roller coaster of a gripping final round to first share the lead after the Italian found the water in front of the short 12th.

But despite the spectacular return to form, Woods will not alter his playing schedule this year. "And, you know, the next two majors are at Bethpage, where he's won [2002 U.S. Open], and Pebble Beach, where he's won [2000 U.S. Open]". With the final group still in the 15th fairway, there was a five-way tie for the lead. Woods came back from a two-stroke deficit entering Sunday and capped off his first major win since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines with a man donning Barkley's jersey by his side the whole time. "One, for its pristine beauty and another [for] its mystique. the [dramatic] finishes that we've had in tournaments over the years on this golf course".

"Running the numbers on how long it'll take me to get to 15".

It also seems that news of Wood's win and perhaps live viewers wanting to watch some history one more time was a victor for CBS Sports too. Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland last hosted the British Open in 1951 (it did host the 2012 Irish Open, with a number of current pros competing). At least he can say he still has three National Basketball Association titles.

"Sometimes it is your day, sometimes it isn't, but I'm really happy of the way I felt out there today", said Molinari. "So, you know, we're creating new memories for them, and it's just very special", he added.

In 2010, Williams wrote that she hoped to catch Woods' major championship total with her Grand Slam total. It does come with a certificate of authenticity from Scotty Cameron, who, according to the auction site, describes the putter as "made for Tiger Woods".

"That was 22 years ago, when my dad was there and then now my son's there, my daughter was there, my mom's there". His 4-under for the tournament tied for 29th.
