BROOKLINE, Mass. — The third men’s major of the year headed towards the weekend at Brookline, Massachusetts, at The Country Club, a beautiful New England golf course just outside Boston.

The field is not only competing for a historic title but a historic paycheck as well.

The winner of the 122nd U.S. Open this Sunday will receive a check for more than $2.2 million — $2,250,000 to be exact. The runner-up will go home with more than $1 million.

For comparison, Justin Thomas took home $2.7 million last month after winning the PGA Championship. Scottie Scheffler also earned $2.7 million in April for winning the Masters.
