The tournament trumps the purses in the other majors - Tiger Woods won just over $2 million at the US Masters this year, while Koepka won just under $2 million at the USPGA Championship at Bethpage Black.

When Graeme McDowell won the US Open at Pebble Beach in 2010 he won $1.35 million so the prize for winning has risen over 50% in the quite short time period.
