ST ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — The winner of the British Open this month will earn more than $2 million for the first time.
From a total prize fund of $11.5 million, whoever lifts the Claret Jug at Royal St George’s in Sandwich on July 18 will also earn $2,070,000, up from the $1,935,000 won by Shane Lowry in 2019.
Last year’s Open was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The increased prize money “fully reflects the championship’s stature in world sport,” R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said on Thursday.
