The 2021 Masters is set to provide golf fans a few days of excitement, with the winner’s share of the prize money expected to be over two million dollars.
After last season’s edition was postponed due to COVID-19 and was held behind closed doors, this year’s tournament will take place at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia with spectators in attendance.
Last year, it was Dustin Johnson who came out victorious from the Masters, which finally took place in November, with the 36-year-old earning the green jacket and the same amount of prize money that this season’s winner will receive.

The total prize pot is set to remain unchanged at 11.5m dollars, with the split of the aforementioned amount depending on the number of players who will tie in certain positions.
For example, back in November Johnson came first and won 2.07m dollars, with Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im earning 1.01m dollars each after both finishing tied in second.
Justin Thomas finished fourth and received 552,000 dollars, while Rory McIlroy and Dylan Frittelli earned 437,000 dollars each after both coming fifth.
Three golfers, C.T. Pan, Brooks Koepka and Jon Rahm, came seventh, with each of them receiving 358,417 dollars apiece.
