The winner of the Masters will receive a record premium of 2.7 million dollars, converted almost 2.5 million euros. The organization of the golf tournament in Augusta announced that amount just before the start of the third round. The Japanese Hideki Matsuyama, who won the previous edition of the major tournament, earned significantly less with 2.07 million dollars (1.9 million euros).

The total prize money of the first major tournament of the year has also increased considerably from 11.5 million to 15 million dollars (13.8 million euros). That too is more than ever. Even the number 2 is richly endowed with 1.6 million euros.

American Scottie Scheffler enters the third round as leader. The leader of the world ranking is 5 strokes ahead of four pursuers, including defending champion Matsuyama. Tiger Woods, who makes his surprising return to the Masters after his serious car accident fourteen months ago, has to make up for nine strokes.
