2012 U.S. Open Golf Prize Money: Webb Simpson Wins $1.44 Million

Webb Simpson stunned the golf world on Sunday, shooting a 68 in the final round to win the 2012 U.S. Open. The 26-year-old golfer picked up the trophy following his win. He will also receive a $1.44 million prize and all the recognition that comes with winning one of the sport's most high profile tournaments.

Second-place finishers did alright in the prize money department as well. Michael Thompson and Graeme McDowell will each take home $695,916 in prize money. McDowell was on top of the leaderboard heading into the final round of the tournament.

The top 20 finishers at the Olympic Club this weekend will take home more than $100,000, before taxes anyway. Tiger Woods, whose performance in the final two rounds pushed him down the leaderboard, will take home just over $86,000 in prize money.

The full tournament leaderboard can be found here.
