The winner of the 2023 Open Championship will receive more money than any other champion in the tournament’s history. The purse increased from $14 million in 2022 to $16.5 million in 2023, of which the winner will receive $3 million. The runner-up takes home $1.7 million, and the third-place finisher comes home with a cool $1 million.

The winner of The Open also receives a list of perks and goodies as long as any tournament in the game. While it’s not the lifetime exemption that comes with a win at The Masters, every winner of the Claret Jug is exempt for The Open until they are 60 years of age.

A victory also means you’re exempt on the PGA Tour through the end of the 2028 season, and you’re in the field for the other three majors until 2028 as well. The 100 Official World Golf Ranking points and 600 FedEx Cup points, plus the spot in the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions, are a few more cherries on top of the sundae.

Unlike some other tournaments in golf, those that fail to make the cut still get a paycheck at The Open. Golf Digest is reporting the players who don’t make the cut will earn between $8,500 and $12,000, in line with the $5,000 cut players get at PGA TOUR events as well.
