Masters Purse 2019: How Much Prize Money Does the Winner Make?

Tiger Woods in the hunt for the lead at the Masters after sinking six birdies on Day 3 at Augusta

While Tiger was slipping on the green jacket and celebrating his fifth career title at The Masters earlier today, sportsbooks around the world were busy counting their losses, with some of them reportedly suffering their biggest loss ever.

- The comeback is complete.

Only fellow American Nicklaus has won more Masters, with six.

A historic Masters victory by Tiger Woods on Sunday was popular with nearly everyone but bookmakers. Prior to Sunday, Woods hadn't won a major championship since his victory at the US open in 2008.

CLEVELAND, Ohio- There were many who believed Tiger Woods would never win a major again.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham is using the Masters as motivation for the upcoming season. The leaders - Italy's Francesco Molinari, at 13-under, has a 2-shot lead over Tony Finau and Tiger Woods - were scheduled to tee off on No. 1 at 9:20 a.m. ET. Woods' name was removed from the game after the 2014 edition.

Other colleagues shared similar thoughts, some of whom were among those standing at the Augusta National clubhouse to greet Woods following his victory. "And, you know, the next two majors are at Bethpage, where he's won [2002 U.S. Open], and Pebble Beach, where he's won [2000 U.S. Open]". "I could barely walk".

The former Ryder Cup captain admitted he got a "telling off" from his wife three years ago, adding: 'I just made a decision to come and play a couple more times, but it doesn't seem to get any better any time I come back. "I was really hoping it would go in".

"I feel good and I like my chances tomorrow".

In a final round that was played in threesomes off both tees to stay ahead of approaching thunderstorms, Woods grabbed the outright lead for the first time with a two-putt birdie at No. 15. The two double bogeys ended his Green Jacket bid.

"From my point of view it's just a step along the way", Molinari said.

"I've done a couple of things that I wish I had done differently now but I'll learn from my mistakes".
