Masters Tournament purse payout percentages and distribution


SHARE THIS STORY



The Masters has a standard formula for payout percentages and distribution of its purse and prize money for the Masters Tournament. There is a 36-hole cut to the top 50 and ties, as well any players within 10 shots of the lead at the 36-hole mark.

The winner of the Masters gets 18 percent of the purse, similar to PGA Tour events. Typically, the second place player gets 10.8 percent of the total purse. Then it goes on like that, all the way down to 50th place, which gets 0.25 percent of the total purse.



The Masters pays $10,000 to all players who miss the cut. After 50th place, Augusta National Golf Club figures out what to pay based on how many players beyond 50 make the cut.
