SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – The few players still left standing after the 36-hole cut at the U.S. Open will have plenty of cash on the line this weekend at Shinnecock Hills.

The USGA is offering a $12 million purse at their biggest event for the second straight year, with $2.16 million to the winner. That’s the same amount Brooks Koepka took home last year at Erin Hills, when the total prize money was increased from $10 million to $12 million.

But the players who fall just short of the title won’t leave empty-handed. A solo runner-up finish will still clear seven figures, while each of the top 24 pros will make at least $100,000. A total of 64 pros made the cut at 8-over 148 along with three amateurs, and whoever finishes last among the professional pack will still pocket $23,470 for their efforts.
