The 2017 British Open Championship purse is set for $10.25 million, with the winner's share coming in at $1,845,000 -- the standard 18 percent payout according to the PGA Tour's prize money distribution chart.

A total of 77 players made the cut, with just one amateur getting to the weekend, meaning the R&A will add to the prize pool to pay out 76 professionals.

Pros who miss the cut get paid, like in all majors. The first 10 pros to miss the cut get $7,200, the next 20 profs and ties get $5,750 and the rest of the pros earn $4,850.



The British Open purse is the fourth-largest among the major championship, with the U.S. Open at $12 million, the Masters at $11 million and the PGA Championship at $10.5 million. The Players Championship on the PGA Tour also has a $10.5 million purse.

The year marks the first time the R&A, which runs The Open Championship, has issued its purse in United States dollars and will pay in that currency instead of British pounds.

The British Open Championship field is headed by the entirety of the top of the Official World Golf Ranking, including defending champion Henrik Stenson, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy.

The event is played this year for the first time since 2008 at Royal Birkdale in England.
