The 34th annual Greater Milwaukee Open will have a total purse of $3.1 million, a record- setting increase of $600,000 from last year's event.
 
The winner, runner up and third-place finisher will net $558,000, $334,800 and $210,000, respectively.
 
This is the sixth straight year that the purse has increased, and the 19th time overall. The increase for the past two years was $500,000.
 
'The Greater Milwaukee Open, with this announced purse increase and the announcement several weeks ago of a record contribution made by the tournament to charity, continues to be a vibrant part of the PGA Tour schedule,' said Robert Milbourne, president of the Greater Milwaukee Open's board of directors.
 
The 33rd Greater Milwaukee Open was won by Loren Roberts, who shot a tournament record 24-under 260, eight shots better than Franklin Langham. It was Roberts' seventh career tour victory.
