2012 U.S. Open Prize Money: Webb Simpson Earns More Than $1.4 Million For The Win

Webb Simpson pulled off a stunner on Sunday, sweeping through the fourth round of play with a 68 that helped push him to the winner's circle. On top of the attention that comes with a dramatic win, Simpson also finds himself considerably wealthier on Monday morning. His prize money for winning the 2012 U.S. Open is $1.44 million.

Second-place finishers Michael Thompson and Graeme McDowell earned $695,916 for their efforts. The five players that finished in third place, with a 3-over, each took home more than $276,000.

The top 20 finishers from the U.S. Open all took home at least $100,000 for their performance on the notoriously difficult course at the Olympic Club last weekend.
