The Masters Tournament is known as the PGA Tour's most prestigious event, not only because of the history and tradition but also because of the huge payouts.

Indeed, Bubba Watson was not the only competitor to come away with a handsome payday. Below is the complete payout distribution for the top 50 finishers.  Note that those who finished tied will evenly split the prize money given to the places they occupy. So Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt, who finished tied for second, will split the money for the second- and third-place finishers.

Here's a look at some golfers who moved up the Sunday leaderboard and earned extra winnings.

 

Bubba Watson

The Masters champion technically did not move up the leaderboard, as he began the day in a tie with Jordan Spieth for the lead. However, by capturing his second Masters title in three years, Watson joined some elite company among recent major winners:

Watson's win is also his second of the season, continuing a hot start to his 2014 season. Apart from a withdrawal at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month, Watson has reeled off six top-10 finishes in his past seven completed events.

More importantly, however, the 35-year-old Watson seals his legacy with this Masters victory. Watson becomes the 17th player with multiple Masters titles, and with a likely top-five world ranking, he must also be taken seriously as one of the top players currently on tour.

 

Jonas Blixt

The 29-year-old Swede started the tournament ranked 101st in the world rankings, a mark that is likely to shoot up following his second-place appearance at Augusta. Blixt began the day in third, and though it never felt as if he was going to seriously threaten for the green jacket, he remained near the top of the leaderboard for almost the whole week.

Blixt has not had a particularly sterling 2014 season, as he missed the cut in his two previous events. Previously, his best showing of the year was a 16th-place finish at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Nevertheless, Sunday's 71 continued a quietly impressive streak:

Blixt captured the golf community's attention with his strong showing. Now, he must translate his solid major performances into high finishes at regular tour events as well.

 

Rory McIlroy

McIlroy effectively fell off the national radar after barely making the cut but somehow forged his way into the top 10 with a strong weekend. Teeing off early in the morning, McIlroy shot a three-under 69 on Sunday to finish at even par for the tournament.

The final round continued a strong weekend for the 24-year-old, who shot a 71 on Saturday as well. If not for a disastrous 77 on Friday, McIlroy likely would have found himself in contention for his first green jacket. As things are, he settled for just his third top-10 finish of the 2014 campaign:

McIlroy has struggled for most of the year and has cooled off significantly since winning the U.S. Open and PGA Championship in a 14-month span. Still, the weekend at Augusta was an encouraging sign that the two-time major champion could recapture the form that made him the likeliest candidate to become the tour's signature golfer.
