(WAGER) — The Masters Tournament is one of the most prestigious events of the golfing calendar. Players dream of being given their own green jacket, and winning millions is also a nice return for four days fighting the greens of Augusta National.
With the 2022 tournament just around the corner, Pickswise has had a look at which players have made the most at Augusta, while also seeing who has the best shot-to-earnings ratio.
- Jordan Spieth has earned the most at Augusta in the last 10 years, taking home $5,210,128.
- Will Zalatoris made over $4,000 per shot last year, finishing second in his first Masters appearance.
- Five-time champion Tiger Woods has earned over $1,500 per shot since 2012.
Will Zalatoris and Sung-Jae Im both sit top of the list of earnings per shot, the former having a wondrous first-time appearance in 2021 finishing second, one shot behind winner Hideki Matsuyama.
Im had an impressive performance in 2020, finishing tied second, and the 24-year-old will be heading into this year's Masters with the hope of bettering his 2020 and 2021 results.
World number 1, Scottie Scheffler, will be looking to increase his earnings per shot at The Masters. In his previous two appearances, the 25-year-old has made an average of $536.60 per shot.
Jordan Spieth has made the most money from the greens at Augusta National, cashing in a total of over $5m since his first appearance in 2014. The 2015 champion has earned $2,311.50 per shot at the tournament.
Both Sergio Garcia and Adam Scott missed the top 10, despite both claiming their own green jackets in 2017 and 2013 respectively. Scott is the only champion among this ranking who has made the cut in all 10 previous tournaments, earning the Australian $2,518,943, equating to $871.91 per shot.
For 2020 US Open winner Bryson DeChambeau, his streak at Augusta is not one to shout about. Having not finished in the top 20 in his four professional appearances, the 28-year-old has earned $190 per shot at the infamous course.
