Masters 2012 Purse: Bubba Watson Earns Over $1 Million To Go With His Green Jacket

The 2012 Masters is finally finished in Augusta. Following Sunday's final round, Bubba Watson emerged victorious following two sudden-death playoff holes. As a result, Watson not only wins the famous green jacket that denotes a Masters victory, but takes home the lion's share of the big Augusta purse.

Watson will earn $576,000 more than Louis Oosthuizen, his 10-under opponent in the final playoff. They will both earn quite a bit more than the foursome who tied in third place at 8-under: Lee Westwood, Phil Mickelson, Peter Hanson and Matt Kuchar. All four of those men made a big last push for the top of the leaderboard, but came up short.
