The British Open, most commonly referred to as The Open Championship, is usually the last of the four majors on the PGA Tour. Its history is rich, having  been hosted by many of the most iconic golf courses in Europe. This year marks the 150th anniversary of The Open and, in perfect alignment, the venue was set to be at the  Old Course, St. Andrews, also known as the birthplace of golf.

The 2022 Open Championship Purse

A win at the British Open sets a golfer’s career on a new trajectory. In addition to being named among some of golf’s greatest champions, the winner at The Open will receive a host of exemptions on tour, which relieves a lot of the pressures of playing tournament golf. In addition, the player that wins The Open Championship, will receive a healthy payday, which can ease the financial burden of playing on the PGA tour. The purse at the 2022 British Open is $14 million. This is the highest purse in the tournament’s history and is a whopping 22% increase compared to the pot in 2021. The winner will be poised to take home a very healthy $2.5 million, which is the usual 18% payout.

How much does the winning caddie make at the 2022 Open Championship?

The winning caddie at the British Open can expect to take home $250,000.This is a huge step up compared to the prize money Xander Schauffele’s caddie took home after the win at the Scottish Open last week but still 20% less than Billy Foster took home at the 2022 U.S. Open. This cut is the standard 10% of the prize money awarded to the winner, which we already estimate to be $2.5 million. The winning caddie stands to take home 28% of prize money available to caddies that make the cut over the weekend.
