How Much Did Sergio Win At The Masters?

We were curious just how much cash Sergio Garcia was going to take home after winning The Master’s Golf tournament this past Sunday. We realize Sergio has been on tour for nearly 20 years, has won and competed in hundreds of tournaments over the years, and also has a number of high paying sponsors.  Basically, he doesn’t need the money, but he did earn a substantial portion for winning it all.

If you had to guess, would you say he won:
$748,000$1,000,000$1,333,333$1,750,000$2,000,000$2,500,000$3,000,000
The correct answer is not provided above. Sergio actually pocketed nearly 2 million.  The payout for first place was $1,980,000.

The number that really caught our eye was the difference between Sergio and Justin Rose. The final playoff hole was worth nearly a million dollars.  Maybe that explains all the pressure and nerves on the final 9 holes at Augusta.
