Aside from the prestigious Augusta National green jacket, the winner of the year's first major will receive close to £1,405,542 in prize money. 

The total prize money pool is being kept flat at $11m after it was boosted by $1m in 2017.

 The Masters is the second-largest purse of the four major championships, with the the US Open offering the largest purse in golf at $12 million.

That means the purse for the champion is the same sum as defending champion Patrick Reed received after his impressive final round performance last year. 

The players that failed to make the cut still receive $10,000 each while the person to finish bottom of the leaderboard come Sunday night will still pocket $20,000.
