2012 U.S. Open Golf Prize Money: Webb Simpson Earns $1.44 Million For His Win

Webb Simpson turned out to be the big story from the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. Simpson played a masterful fourth round to push his way to the top of the leaderboard and into a win. The victory left him considerably wealthier as well. Simpson won $1.44 million for his first-place finish in the tournament.

The two second-place golfers, Michael Thompson and Graeme McDowell, each took home $695,916 for their tournament efforts. McDowell spent some time at the top of the leaderboard during the tournament, but a 73 in the final round dropped him into second place.

The top 20 finishers in the 2012 U.S. Open all took home more than $100,000 for their performance. Tiger Woods, who finished at 7-over thanks to a rough weekend, brought in just over $86,000 in prize money.
