In addition to receiving the legendary green jacket, Tiger Woods will take home $2.07 million in prize money for winning the 2019 Masters. The multi-million dollar cut is part of an $11.5 million purse for the tournament, which is up $500,000 from a year ago, when Patrick Reed took home $1.98 million for his first-place finish.

Woods emerged over the final few holes from a crowded leaderboard to win his first major in years. The 43-year-old hit back-to-back birdies at No. 15 and No. 16 to take the sole lead, and he would hold onto it from there despite Brooks Koepka and others chasing.

The Masters offers the third-highest purse among tournaments on the 2019 PGA Tour schedule.

The Players’ Championship takes the lead there this year with a total purse of $12.5 million and a $2.25 million prize for the victor. Among the four majors, the Masters is second in purse behind the U.S. Open ($12 million), but ahead of the PGA Championship ($11 million) and the Open Championship ($10.5 million).

However, Woods won’t get the honor of being part of the iconic green jacket ceremony, which Augusta National cancelled Sunday morning due to concerns over weather. Tournament organizers already moved up fourth-round tee times for the leaders to try to beat the storms and ensure a winner would be named this weekend. They said the ceremony was cancelled to get patrons and workers off the course as quickly as possible.
