Open Championship 2013 Payout: Players Who Lost Money with Poor Play on Sunday

Phil Mickelson earned a cool $1.4 million (£945,000) as a reward for winning the 2013 British Open, but there were some top golfers who cost themselves some serious cash with disappointing performances in the final round.

Always one with a flair for the dramatic, Mickelson finished his final round by making birdie on No. 18. He hit two phenomenal shots to get to within 10 feet and then drained his birdie putt to seal his impressive victory.

Lefty fired a final-round 66 to finish the tournament at three under par, finishing three strokes better than Henrik Stenson, who finished in second place by himself at even par. 

For his efforts, Stenson made out like a bandit, earning $832,167 (£545,000).

Every golfer in the field took home a portion of the substantial purse, and every player who finished in the top 15 earned at least $100,000.

Here's a look at the final leaderboard, along with the payouts, followed by a closer look at a few players who cost themselves significant amounts of money after playing poorly on Sunday.

Lee Westwood

Westwood started out the day atop the leaderboard at three-under par, and the 2013 Open Championship was his to win.

He'd put together two impressive rounds in a row—a 68 on Friday and a 70 on Saturday—to give himself a one-shot lead, but mistakes and missed opportunities plagued the Englishman's final round. 

After posting nine birdies and an eagle in those two rounds, Westwood only managed one birdie on Sunday and suffered five bogeys. 

His third-place finish cost Westwood a huge payday, as he earned less than one-third of what he would have if he'd won the tournament.

Like Westwood, Woods was in prime position to win this tournament after three days of action.

At one under par heading into Sunday's final round, Woods had played with as much consistency and skill as any player in the field through those first three rounds. 

Unfortunately, this wasn't his tournament. 

As noted by Jason Sobel of the Golf Channel, Woods never made the necessary adjustments on the greens and, as a result, he saw his score go up every day:

At the end of the day on Sunday, Woods was in a tie for sixth place after shooting three-over par on the round to finish at two over par for the tournament. Major victory No. 15 will have to wait at least a few more weeks, as the 2013 PGA Championship begins on August 8, 2013. 

 

Ryan Moore

Heading into the final round, Moore was in great shape to earn a huge payday and perhaps win the tournament. He played with skill through the first three rounds, posting rounds of 72, 70 and 72, and was at one over par to start Round 4. 

With two career wins on the PGA Tour and two top-10 finishes in major championships, Moore appeared ready to make a strong statement on Sunday, but instead of earning a monster paycheck as a potential top-10 finisher, he posted an abysmal round of 78.

Posting but a single birdie on the round, Moore logged seven bogeys and one double-bogey on the day, plummeting down the leaderboard to finish in a tie for 32nd place.

For Moore, you have to believe that this final-round tumble is going to sting for a little bit.
