2019 Open Championship Purse Payout

Shane Lowry’s victory this past week at Royal Portrush not only earned him immortality in his homeland, job security for the next 10 years and a year with the Claret Jug, but it also came with the largest winner’s prize in Open Championship history: $1.935 million. 

While Lowry’s victory and subsequent celebration are still fresh in his mind, J.B. Holmes is likely rueing his Sunday performance and not only because of the 16-over par 87 he posted.

Entering the final round in third place, Holmes was in line to make upwards of $700,000 if he held his position on the leaderboard and even more if he could muster even an even-par round. Unfortunately for Holmes, his fate was already written and as the Portrush weather blew in, his chances blew away.

Holmes shot 5-over par 41 on the front nine and 11-over par 46 on the back to tumble to a tie for 67th place, a difference of $693,000. Holmes has made over $25 million on the PGA Tour, good enough for 55th all-time, but the final-round meltdown coupled with the amount of money he left on the table has to sting a little bit.
