The British Open total purse hits an all-time high in 2015, reaching $9.2 million in prize money.

That number is slightly from the $9 million purse in 2014.

Last year’s Open Championship winner, Rory McIlroy, took home a little bit over $1.66 million.

Zach Johnson, the 2015 winner, will get nearly $1.8 million — $1.794,690, to be exact.

Johnson will also receive the Claret Jug, one of the more recognizable trophies in sports.

Johnson won in a playoff over Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman. Oosthuizen and Leishman will receive more than $837,000 apiece for their efforts.
