Cameron Smith earns $2.5 million and the full prize money payouts for each player at the 2022 British Open at St. Andrews

·3 min read

It pays to play well in professional golf tournaments, especially at major championships. Just ask this week’s winner, Cameron Smith.

The 28-year-old Aussie shot an 8-under 64 at the Old Course at St. Andrews in the final round of the 150th playing of the Open Championship to overcome a four-shot deficit and earn a one-shot win over Cameron Young to claim his first major title. Smith finished at 20 under to earn the top prize of $2.5 million, with Young taking home $1.46 million. Not a bad consolation prize.

Check out how much money each professional player made this week at the Open at St. Andrews (remember, no cash for the amateurs).
