Collin Morikawa won his second career major title on Sunday at Royal St. George's, and with it, he also won the biggest prize in Open Championship history: $2.07 million. 

This year the Open offered a $11.5 million purse, which matched the money offered by the Masters but was slightly less than the U.S. Open's $12.5 million pot. The Open prize pool was increased $750,000 from 2019. (Winner Shane Lowry won $1.935 million for his victory in 2019.) The R&A began paying its prize money in dollars in 2016. 

"We have increased the prize fund for The Open this year and believe that it fully reflects the Championship's stature in world sport," said R&A CEO Martin Slumbers. "As the only men's major championship played outside of America, The Open has a global role to play and we are determined to continue to attract the top players. We are further enhancing the status of our professional championships at the same time as making good progress towards our investment of 200 million pounds over 10 years in growing golf around the world."
