Open Championship winner will get £1 million
By Torleif Sorenson on 6/26/15
The R&A announced on Wednesday that the winner of the Open Championship next mont at St. Andrews will receive a winner's check of over £1 million.

As reported by Phil Casey, the overall purse is increased over last year, from £5.4 million to £6.3 million. Casey also quoted R&A chief executive Peter Dawson for the explanation:

"The Open is one of the world's pre-eminent sporting events. The Championship represents the pinnacle for the world's greatest golfers and this increase is appropriate for an event with the Open's global appeal."
Perhaps, but you will still have to forgive us for shaking our heads at that extraordinary amount of money.

Gary Player won 1,000 pounds in 1959. Of course back then, a pound was worth $2.81. And if he had been clever enough to give Warren Buffett the $2,810 to invest in 1964, he would have about $29,500,000.
