Why Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke stand to make the most money from a Masters win

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The winner's check for the Masters is about $1.6 million, but two players could wind up walking away with about three times that amount.

Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke have provisions in their contracts with Dunlop that if they win the Masters or any other major championship, they will receive a 2-million-pound bonus, which roughly equates to $3 million. That's a lot of potential green to go with the green jacket.

Clarke cashed in on this bonus when he won his lone major title at the 2011 British Open. He has just one top 25 in a major since, though, and enters this week as one of the biggest long shots at 1,000/1 odds, according to online bookmaker Bovada.

Bookies like Westwood's chances a lot better. The 2010 runner-up at Augusta National is listed at 50/1 to win.
