British Open purse 2016: Winner will take home $1.5 million in esteem money

The theatre is set for a extensive finish during a 2016 Open Championship. The margin will be competing for a cherished Claret Jug and a pretension of Champion Golfer of a Year. Both titles are among a many sought after in a sport, though a leader will also be rewarded with a poignant check interjection to a purse of some-more than $8.5 million. The winning share will be value some-more than $1.5 million, which, for an American winner, is indeed a poignant drop from a prior year interjection to a descending bruise after a UK voted to leave a European Union.

The purse of a Open is some-more in motion this year than it has been in a prolonged time. The tangible purse was increased £200,000, bringing it to £6.5 million. The usually emanate for a winners is new events have caused a strength of a bruise to lessen compared to a dollar so a winning share of $1.551 million is indeed reduction than a winning share was final year, notwithstanding a altogether purse increase. When Zach Johnson won a 2015 Open Championship, he took home $1.8 million. The eventuality stays among a many prestigious in golf, though Brexit has caused a purse to be obtuse than a other vital championships, The Players Championship, and even a WGCs.

Even with a changes, a tip 7 finishers mount to take home some-more than a entertain of a million dollars. Ties will eventually change a final payouts significantly, though a purse is structured for a tip 17 places to all take home six-figure prizes.

Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson have been a stars of a eventuality so far. Mickelson jumped into a lead on Thursday with a 63 and has remained during or nearby a tip of a leaderboard since. Stenson done a clever run adult a standings on Friday and overtook Mickelson for a lead on Saturday. The dual have distanced themselves from a rest of a margin and have set a theatre for a head-to-head finish exclusive a fall or a vital swell from a apart contender.

Both Mickelson and Stenson are intensely good achieved and wealthy players. Phil has done some-more than $80 million in on-course gain during his career while Stenson has pocketed some-more than $22 million. Those total don’t embody all a off-course cash, reportedly around $50 million for Phil final year, and a $10 million reward asset that Stenson pocketed for winning a FedExCup. Despite their accomplishments, a win on Sunday would be a biggest payday for one singular eventuality of both player’s careers. Mickelson warranted $1.4 million when he won a 2013 Open.

The payout might not be value as most as a Masters or U.S. Open or PGA Championship this year, though there is still a vital payday on a line on Sunday during a Open and a whole margin will be chasing that and a Claret Jug. Given Stenson’s and Mickelson’s already superfluous bank accounts, a jug is a thing.

Here is a finish demeanour during a payout for a remaining field, tentative ties.
