2012 U.S. Open Golf Prize Money: Webb Simpson Earns $1.44 Million

Webb Simpson made a name for himself over the weekend. He also made his wallet a little bit thicker in the process.

Simpson won his first major by conquering the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco on Sunday evening. He was paid a whopping sum of $1.44 million, easily the biggest payday of his career.

Pennsylvania native Jim Furyk finished tied for fourth after leading for much of the final round. A few disastrous shots unfortunately cost Furyk north of a million dollars.

The rest of the top ten finishers received a nice check in the six-figure range.
