Masters 2021: How to win a green jacket in seven simple steps

  Masters 2021: How to win a green jacket in seven simple steps Masters 2021: How to win a green jacket in seven simple stepsBecause, in spite of its trappings of tradition, Augusta National and the Masters sure change a heck of a lot. From reversing nines after the inaugural tournament to brandishing a it-sure-looks-like-rough-but-don’t-call-it-rough second cut last fall, Augusta National is in perpetual evolution. It is an evolution partially dictated by the transformation in how the game is played and what it rewards.

The spoils of winning the Masters are numerous and overwhelming. There’s the green jacket, of course, and the Masters trophy, plus the chance to tee it up every April at Augusta National for the rest of your life. You have a seat reserved at the Champions Dinner each year and a space in the Champions locker room whenever you’re back down Magnolia Lane. Oh, and your golf legacy is fairly secure, “Masters champion” mentioned any time you’re introduced in public.

Masters 2021: Twenty years ago, Tiger Woods faced more pressure than any golfer in history

  Masters 2021: Twenty years ago, Tiger Woods faced more pressure than any golfer in history In preparing for the 2001 Masters, Tiger Woods faced endless questions about what winning four straight majors would mean, and whether he could do it.“When do you start thinking about Augusta?”

There is one other thing the winner receives that, amazingly, can get overlooked: the first-place check that goes to the winner. On Saturday, the club released the prize money payout for the 2021 tournament, keeping the overall purse at $11.5 million with the winner taking home $2,070,000, both numbers the same as in 2019 and 2020.

Among the men’s majors, the Masters ranks the second most lucrative. The U.S. Open handed out $12.5 million at Winged Foot in September, with Bryson DeChambeau earning $2.25 million for his victory. The PGA Championship paid out $11 million in August at TPC Harding Park with Collin Morikawa receiving $1.98 million. The Open Championship awarded $10.75 million in 2019 at Royal Portrush.

And the most lucrative purse on the PGA Tour? That distinction goes to the Players Championship. Last month, the tour paid out a record $15 million prize money payout, with Justin Thomas earning $2.7 million for his victory.

By the time Wednesday evening rolls around, there will be no dark horses left.

Before revealing the prize money breakdown for this year at Augusta, here’s a little more Masters prize money history. With his victory in 2019, Tiger Woods returned to being the all-time career money leader in Masters history, jumping past Phil Mickelson. Woods had earned $9.544 million, with Mickelson having won $8.044 million.
