One more day of waiting and More than 200,000 golf fans will descend on St Andrews for one of the world’s most prestigious golf tournaments.
The winner will probably be one of the finest players in the world. The list of past St. Andrews winners includes Woods (twice), Jack Nicklaus (twice), Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros and Bobby Jones.
What can they win?
The total purse for the 144th staging of golf’s oldest Major has grown £900,000 to £6.3m – a prize money pool that guarantees even the 70th placed player at St Andrews £14,500. – cityam.com
Even so, this is not the richest tournament in golf. The total prize pool equates to $9.8m, marginally less than the $10m on offer at the US Open, Masters and US PGA Championship.
If the named favourite of the tournament , Jordan Spieth, wins would take his 2015 earnings over $10m with another title, has already banked $1.8m from winning both the US Open and Masters and is the highest earner on the PGA Tour so far this year.
