Lee Westwood enters the final round of the 2016 Masters four shots off the lead of Jordan Spieth and certainly in the conversation for contenders to win at Augusta National.
If Westwood manages to win the green jacket on Sunday for his first major title, not only will he win the $1.8 million winner's share of the $10 million Masters purse, he'll also earn a $2.825 million bonus from a sponsor. Westwood wears Dunlop clothing and, for years, has had a stipulation in his endorsement deal that he would get a $2.825 million (£2 million) bonus for every major he wins.

Of course, Westwood doesn't have a major yet, so he hasn't cashed in on that. However, the 42-year-old has a runner-up finish (2010) and a T-3 finish (2012), so he's been close in the past.
