Tiger Woods' huge win at the Masters today did more than restore his legacy and allow him to continue chasing Jack Nicklaus' records. The win also gave him a tidy sum of cold, hard cash.

Per Darren Rovell, Tiger Woods received $2,070,000 for winning the Masters on Sunday. The three runner-ups, Xander Schauffele, Brooks Koepka, and Dustin Johnson, each received $858,667.

It's a nice haul for Woods, who adds to his record career-earnings to bring his total to over $117 million in his professional career. And that's just from the purses alone.

Woods' net worth is estimated to be well upwards of half-a-billion.

Woods finished seventh on the 2018 golfer's money rank list thanks to one win, two second-place finishes, seven top-ten finishes, and 12 top-25 finishes.

The last time he was the No. 1 earner in golf was 2013, when he made $8.5 million from 16 starts. He would fail to crack one million from 2014 to 2017 due to injuries and poor play, but came back with a vengeance and over $5.4 million last year.

With an extra $2 million and change added to his purse after the first of four majors, there's every reason to believe he'll remain a contender for the No. 1 spot.

Tiger's next big test will come at the PGA Championship next month. He is already the betting favorite.
