Open 2022 prize money: How much will players win at St Andrews?

The 150th Open Championship will feature a record prize fund at St Andrews this week.

The total purse is up 22% to over £11.6m while the Claret Jug winner will claim a tournament record of £2.1m. This figure also represents a significant increase, with Collin Morikawa taking home £1.6million for his victory last year.

Martin Slumbers, Managing Director of The R&A, said: “There have been significant changes in prize money over the past year. We have therefore increased the prize pool by 22% which means that the prize pool has increased by more than 60% since 2016.

“We have made this substantial investment while balancing our broader commitments to grow golf at all levels around the world and continue to elevate the AIG Women’s Open.”Here’s everything you need to know:

Who are the contenders and what are the odds?

Rory McIlroy 10/1

The favorite and perhaps the best player in the world at his best. Expect the rejuvenated Irishman to go down here, having posted an under-63 score in the first round of the 2010 Open at St Andrews. McIlroy will have to adapt his high ball flight if the wind blows, but this could be the year to end an eight-year dry run since the last of his four majors.

Jon Rahm 11/1

Having broken into major tournaments last year at the US Open, Rahm is a ball-striking machine and has a nice streak in links golf after finishing T-11 and T-3 in the past two years.

Rahm could be inspired by three-time Open champion Seve Ballesteros after the Spaniard’s magic won him the Claret Jug at St Andrews in 1984.

Justin Thomas 12/1

Two-time major champion, finally, “JT” has been sensational throughout 2022, including eight top-10 finishes, including his play-off victory at Southern Hills in the PGA Championship. On the record as someone who has worked on the ball flight and confident to shape it both ways, Thomas is another player very happy to mix it up in all conditions.

Scottie Scheffler 14/1

The world No. 1, Masters champion and four-time winner in 2022. The American should perhaps be the favorite, despite having a lack of experience with Links, although he was T-8 in his debut at the Open last year at Royal St George’s.

Colin Morikawa 18/1

The defending champion after last year’s majestic display in Sandwich, but the American has struggled in recent weeks. He passed out at Brookline at the US Open, but led after two rounds before finishing T-5. If he can rediscover his signature iron game, he’ll be there.

Matt Fitzpatrick 1/20

The last big winner in British golf after winning the US Open and now with a revamped game that includes distance to go with its exquisite chipping and putting. He joked that he was a “bomber” after Brookline and had mastered the Old Course.

Jordan Spieth 18/1

The 2017 Open champion at Royal Birkdale, Spieth finished T-4 seven years ago here and was one shot away from the three-way shoot-off between champion Zach Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman. Tempted fate by claiming the Old Course might be ‘too easy’ if the weather is calm.

Tiger wood 50/1

It would be another fairy tale story, but St Andrews, like Augusta, is perfectly suited to Woods’ eye. It’s his ‘favorite course’ and as a three-time Open champion, who won here in 2000 and 2005, Woods hopes his unrivaled knowledge can put him in contention if the body barely holds up 18 months after his crash car threatening his career.
