What does the Masters Champion win?

If you think the Masters Tournament ends with merely a trophy, you are going to be amazed by the perks athletes actually receive. 

The 2022 Masters Champion who wins at Augusta National will be awarded a custom-fit green jacket. The jacket will be draped on the shoulders of 2021 Masters Champion Hideki Matsuyama after the final round. The jacket is worn by past champions and members of the Augusta National.

The 2022 Champion will also receive a gold coin, a winner’s trophy, a purse of $11.5 million and an honorable membership at Augusta National. Finally, the winner will have the chance to choose the menu at the annual Champions dinner, which is held on the Tuesday of the Masters week.

But it doesn’t stop there. 

In terms of the future, the Masters Champion will get a lifetime exemption into the tournament, which means they will be invited to play indefinitely, as well as a five-year exemption for the PGA Tour and to play in the three other major golf championships – the U.S. Open, PGA Championship and The Open Championship.

Will Tiger Woods compete at the 2022 Masters?

Woods answered questions from the media on Tuesday morning at Augusta National concerning his return-to-play plan. “As of right now, I’m going to play,” said Woods. “I’m going to play nine more holes tomorrow. My recovery has been good. I’ve been very excited about how I’ve recovered each and every day.”

The 46-year-old suffered a career-threatening leg injury following a car accident in February of 2021.

 

He won the Masters in 2019.
