Not only does winning the Masters seal your name in history, earn you the first Major of the golf season, and reward you with the prestigious Green Jacket – winning it also comes with a seven-figure prize money cheque.
A total prize money pool of $10m (£7m) is on offer at the tournament, which could mean the winner takes home a cool $1.8m from Augusta – the biggest reward of any golf event so far this season.
Even a 50th placed straggler could take home a respectable $25,200 for a weekend's work.
The tournament has kept its remuneration fund at $10m this year following a $1m top-up ahead of last year's tournament, won by breakout star Jordan Spieth.
Golf’s three other Majors set aside similar sums for players' payments; the US PGA Championship and US Open both boast of $10m prize money pools while the Open's is slightly narrower at $9.3m.
Yet this season's biggest prize money pool is to be found at The Players Championship, which has boosted its fund by $500,000 to $10.5m.
Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Spieth arrive in Augusta as favourites to secure the $1.8m payday, but it is world No6 Adam Scott who enters with the most secure so far this season with $4.4m in prize money, having already won two titles this year.
Spieth's win a year ago set in motion a stunning – and lucrative – season which saw him earn $12m on the PGA Tour plus a further $10m from the FedEx Cup.
