Masters 2012 Purse: Bubba Watson Is Wearing A Green Jacket And Carrying A Lot Of Greenbacks

Bubba Watson earned his first major championship crown on Sunday, as he defeated South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen in a two-hole, sudden death playoff at Augusta National Golf Club. The Georgia Bulldog alum, hit a remarkable approach shot on the final hole to help earn the green jacket.

With the green jacket, however, comes a lot of money and Watson won that too. Over at SBNation.com, there's an unofficial list of the prize purse from the Masters, and Watson earned about $1.5 million for his 10-under par, four-day total.

Second place Oosthuizen cashed in for about $850,000, while Phil Mickelson split a four-way tie for third-place for about $285K.
