2011 US Open Payouts: Robert Garrigus Earns $364,241; Rory McIlroy A Millionaire

Rory McIlroy was already a millionaire, but his work at the US Open earned him a significant financial windfall, to the tune of just under $1.5 million. For his record performance at Congressional Country Club, McIlroy pocketed $1,440,000, almost double that of the second-place competitor. Jason Day, who finished in second by a whopping eight strokes, earned a solid chunk of the US Open payout, picking up $865,000 for his week's work.

Robert Garrigus bounced-back on the back-nine on Sunday after a dismal first nine pushed him out of the top-10. Thanks to a hard charge coming back in, Garrigus tied for the low American score at the US Open, finishing in a four-way tie for third place. Garrigus took home $364,241 for his work at the US Open, as did Lee Westwood, Kevin Chappell and Y.E. Yang.

Yang is surely kicking himself on Monday morning after he came down with a case of the snap hooks down the stretch at the US Open. Yang bogeyed the 15th and 18th as he scrambled around the course, falling from second to third by the time his round was over. His missteps cost him just a hair under $500,000 -- a tough pill to swallow after a solid week.

Here's how the top-10 shook-out. The full list can be found here.
