AUGUSTA, Ga. — Win the Masters, get a green jacket. That is the tournament's ultimate, and cherished, prize. What the win will do to the back account ain't too shabby, either.

On Saturday morning the Augusta National Golf Club announced the payouts for the 2018 Masters. Similar to last year's tournament, the winner will take home a staggering $1.98 million. And though coming in second can be agonizing on one's psyche, earning a paycheck of $1.18 million should alleviate that pain. Same as the bronze medal winner ($748,000) and fourth-place finisher ($528,000).

In total, $11 million will be awarded at this year's tournament, with the top 24 finishers earning six figures. The $11 million is one of the largest payouts in golf. Only the U.S. Open, with a $12 million payout and $2.16 million winner's share, has a bigger purse.
