A major championship isn't the only thing up for grabs this week in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

The 150-plus golfers in the 2024 U.S. Open field will also be vying for a multi-million-dollar first-place prize.

Wyndham Clark secured $3.6 million by winning last year's U.S. Open for the first major championship of his career. Rory McIlroy, who lost to Clark by one stroke, missed out on a sizable chunk of change by finishing second instead of first, getting a $2.16 million payout.

So, how much money will the golfer who emerges as champion this week at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club's Course No. 2 earn? Here's what to know about the 2024 U.S. Open purse:

What is the US Open purse in 2024?

The United States Golf Association announced on Wednesday that this year's U.S. Open will feature a purse of $21.5 million, which is up from $20 million in 2023.

The 2024 U.S. Open boasts a larger purse than each of the previous two majors held this year in the Masters ($20 million) and PGA Championship ($18.5 million).
