A green jacket and golf immortality is nice, but $1,440,000 is a good bonus to that. That is the total amount that Bubba Watson will pocket for winning the 2012 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club. It took a little overtime to get it, but it is unlikely that Watson minds.
Watson's earnings for the weekend totaled $576,000 more than Louis Oosthuizen made with his second place finish. The rest of the top ten broke down this way:
1st: Bubba Watson, $1,440,000
2nd, Louis Oosthuizen $864,000
T-3rd, Lee Westwood, $284,000
T-3rd, Matt Kuchar, $284,000
T-3rd, Peter Hanson, $284,000
T-3rd, Phil Mickelson, $284,000
7th, Ian Poulter, $268,0000
T-8, Adam Scott, $244,000
T-8, Padraig Harrington, $244,000
T-8, Justin Rose, $244,000
In addition to his earnings, Oosthuizen also took home a crystal bowl for his double-eagle hole-in-one during the final round.
