That's quite a haul for four days of golf.

After playing brilliantly throughout Round 4, Mickelson closed out the tournament in style, making a clutch birdie on No. 18, as noted by ESPN's SportsCenter:

After winning the Scottish Open leading up to the British Open, it's clear that Mickelson has figured out how to play links golf. His final-round 66 tied Zach Johnson for the best round of the tournament. 

Clutch, indeed. 

Second-place finisher Henrik Stenson posted his best career finish in a major championship, as noted by Michael Johnson of Piretti Golf, earning £545,000 ($823,167) for his efforts:

Every single golfer who finished in the top 15 earned over $100,000, and even those who finished at the bottom of the pack took home a nice chunk of change.

Here's a look at the final leaderboard, followed by a complete breakdown of the earnings by finishing position.
