With Bubba Watson's playoff victory at the Masters on Sunday, he earned himself $1.44 million.

This highly entertaining tournament could not end after 72 holes, and it took two more holes for Watson to be victorious.

As well as Louis Oosthuizen played throughout the week, the last hole cost him $576,000, as well as a shiny new green jacket.

Phil Mickelson, who tried to come back from his triple bogey on four, finished tied for third place with Matt Kuchar, Peter Hanson and Lee Westwood.

The four will split a pot of $1.536 million, which comes to $384,000 per person.

Interestingly, a missed birdie putt on the final hole by Mickelson lost him over $200,000. Fortunately, he has plenty of endorsement deals to make up that money.

Other notable competitors include Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, who ended up tied for 40th with two other golfers.

They will each leave with $32,000, which is well below their usual pay-scale.
