Francesco Molinari
Warren Little/R&A

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Francesco Molinari earned the claret jug, the title "Champion Golfer of the Year" and the glory of winning a major championship, the first Italian to do such a thing, by shooting a closing 69 on Sunday at Carnoustie Golf Links, finishing off an eight-under 276 at the 147th Open Championship. Oh, and the 35-year-old also earned some money for his effort. A lot of money. Actually, an awful lot of money. Molinari wound up walking away will $1.89 million, or roughly £1.4 million. By comparison, here how much the winners made in the seven previous Open Championship visits to Carnoustie:

2007, Padraig Harrington, £750,000
1999, Paul Lawrie, £350,000
1975, Tom Watson, £7,500
1968, Gary Player, £3,000
1953, Ben Hogan, £500
1937, Henry Cotton, £100
1931, Tommy Armour, £100

Molinari's 276 was the lowest 72-hole score ever shot at Carnoustie, made more impressive by the fact he played the final 37 holes without making a bogey and had just one three-putt for the week. Suffice it to say, everybody who made the cut will walk away with a fairly nice reward. Here's the breakdown for the entire field from Carnoustie Golf Links.
