The first Masters in 1934 was won by Horton Smith, who pocketed $1,500 for his historic win. In 2022, Scottie Scheffler earned a record $2.7 million for his first major championship.
The money has certainly changed over the years. Jack Nicklaus played in 45 Masters and his career earnings at the tournament are $912,359. Arnold Palmer played in 50 Masters and he earned $309,013.
It’s probably no surprise that Woods tops the all-time money list for the Masters, just as he does on the PGA Tour’s all-time money list.
