Tiger Woods shocked the world today when he won the Masters for the fifth time in his career — just one less than the legendary Jack Nicklaus, who won six titles there.

“A big ‘well done’ from me to Tiger,” Nicklaus tweeted. “I am so happy for him and for the game of golf. This is just fantastic!!!”

It was something no one expected, as Woods had struggled for a few years now and most golf fans thought his time was finished.

How much did Tiger win today?

Tiger Woods won $2.07 million in prize money for his win at the 2019 Masters. He also got another legendary green jacket.

The $2.07 million that Tiger won today is his part of an $11.5 million purse for the tournament — $500,000 more than the prize fund from last year where Patrick Reed won $1.98 million.

This was also the third highest prize among the tournaments on the 2018-19 PGA schedule, with The Players Championship being the highest. That tournament pays out a total of $12.5 million, with $2.25 million going to the winner.
