More than just the Green Jacket… Everything the 2022 Masters champion will win with victory at Augusta National Golf Club.
Today’s Golfer’s 2022 Major coverage is brought to you in association with TaylorMade.
From a replica trophy of the clubhouse and honourary membership to prize money and plenty of ranking points, a Masters win means far more than just the Green Jacket.
Below are all the things the man who wins the Masters receives, alongside being a Major champion.
The Green Jacket
The champion can keep and wear their jacket anywhere they wish for just under a year, having to hand it back before the following year’s event. From then on, the jacket can only be worn in Augusta’s grounds.
The Masters Tournament prize money
2022’s purse saw a significant increase on previous years with Scottie Scheffler pocketing a cool $2.7m for his victory – $630,000 more than Hideki Matsuyama, Dustin Johnson and Tiger Woods had won in the three previous events.
In total, the 2022 Masters purse increased by $3.5m to $15m dollars.
Only the PGA Tour’s Players Championship, which pays the winner $3.6m from a whopping total purse of $20m, is richer.
The Open Championship pays the winner $1.935m from its $10.75 million purse, while the PGA Championship victor receives $1.98m from an $11m purse.

Five-year peace of mind
For the five years after their Augusta win, the Masters champion can rest easier knowing that he receives an exemption to the PGA Tour and to golf’s other three men’s majors, The Open, US Open and US PGA Championship.
A momento of his Masters win: Trophy & medals
Introduced in 1993, the winner receives a replica of the permanent Masters Trophy (above), which depicts the Clubhouse and includes the names of every winner and runner-up.
He also receives a Masters gold medallion, measuring 3.4 inches in diameter, weighing 2.3 ounces and featuring a view of the Founders Circle in front of the Clubhouse.

An open-ended Augusta National invite
For as long as he lives, or as long as he can physically swing a club, every Masters winner can enter the tournament again every year. Theoretically, Jack Burke Jr. could tee it up, but the oldest living Masters champion is now aged 99 and no longer attends.
Honorary Augusta National Golf Club membership
Every Masters winner automatically becomes an honorary member of ANGC. This isn’t the same as being a fully paid-up Augusta National member – only Jack and Arnie went on to enjoy that privilege.
It does mean, however, that they get to play Augusta National whenever they like (provided the club is open), and get to wear their Green Jacket whenever they’re on the premises.
The Champions Dinner menu
The most famous of all Masters traditions, whoever wins at Augusta gets to choose the following year’s menu at the Masters Champions Dinner, held the Tuesday before the tournament begins and known officially as the Masters Club Dinner.

A licence to print money!
The Masters winner receives 100 world ranking points and 600 PGA Tour FedEx Cup points – the former can elevate him into the elite with invitations to big-money WGC events, the latter help towards qualifying for the no-cut, BMW Championship and Tour Championship.
He also gets an invite to the next year’s Tournament of Champions, an event with no cut and a generous $8.2m purse.
