Prize fund announced for The Open at Royal Liverpool

11 months ago

The winner of The 151st Open at Royal Liverpool will receive $3m (USD) in prize money.

The Champion Golfer of the Year will receive the highest amount in the history of The Open, as it returns to the renowned Hoylake links for the 13th time.

The R&A announced that the total prize fund for The Open, played from 16-23 July 2023, will be USD16.5 million, an 18% increase on 2022.

Martin Slumbers, CEO of The R&A, said:

“Our aim is to ensure The Open remains at the pinnacle of world golf and we have almost doubled the prize fund since 2016.

“While we are seeing substantial increases in prize money across the men’s professional game, we are fulfilling our wider obligation to the sport by elevating the AIG Women’s Open, strengthening pathways in the elite amateur game and encouraging more people around the world to play golf.

“We believe that getting this balance right is vital to the long-term future of the sport.”

Prize Money shall be allocated only to professional golfers.

If more than 70 professional golfers qualify for the final two rounds, additional prize money will be added. Prize money will decrease by USD125 per qualifying place above 70 to a minimum of USD36,550.

Non-qualifiers after two rounds: Leading 10 professional golfers and ties USD12,000; next 20 professional golfers and ties USD10,000; remainder of professional golfers and ties USD8,500.

We’re just days away from watching the world’s top golfers teeing off for the 151st British Open Golf Championships.

If you were unsuccessful in the ballot held earlier, or missed the entry window, you may still be able to secure tickets for Hoylake.

You’ll need to be a member of the Open’s free-to-join membership programme, but then you can go on its official Ticket Resale Platform where fans can safely buy and sell any unwanted tickets from each other at face value prices.
