There was likely no more predictable an outcome when Jim Furyk turned 50 and was able to play the PGA Tour Champions that one day he’d win a senior major title. And arguably the most obvious one would be the U.S. Senior Open.

The 51-year-old became just the eighth golfer to pair a U.S. Open victory (2003, Olympia Fields) with the senior version when he shot a closing 71 at Omaha Country Club on Sunday. That capped a seven-under 273 total for the championship, three shots lower than runners-up Mike Weir and Retief Goosen.

With the victory, Furyk is also the 10th golfer to win in his U.S. Senior Open debut.

For the win, Furyk claimed a prize money payout of $720,000 from an overall purse of $4 million. Here’s a breakdown of the prize money payout for each golfer who made the cut in the senior major.
