The winner of the 124th U.S. Open on Sunday will pocket a major tournament-record $4.3 million, the United States Golf Association announced.

That total, which is a $300,000 boost from last year’s payout, trails only the $4.5 million payday that Scottie Scheffler received for winning The Players Championship in March. It eclipses his $3.6 million paycheck for emerging victorious at this year’s Masters Tournament in April and Xander Schauffele’s $3.3 million prize for capturing the PGA Championship in May.

The U.S. Open prize pool increased by $1.5 million to $21.5 million for the players competing at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina.

In addition to the winner, the owners of the next three spots will receive seven-figure paydays. The runner-up will pocket $2.32 million, the third-place golfer will claim $1.45 million and the fourth-place finisher will take home just over $1 million — provided there are no ties.

Each participant finishing in the top 10 will receive at least $500,000.
