Masters 2012 Purse: Tom Watson, Gary Woodland And Chez Reavie Come Up Short

They say “no news is good news,” but the lack of any buzz for golfers with local ties at the 2012 Masters means no payout. Tom Watson, Chez Reavie and Gary Woodland all came up short at Augusta for one reason or another, and that means that each golfer goes home empty-handed from the Easter weekend, at least in terms of purse payouts.

The winner, of course, was Bubba Watson who earned a cool $1.44 million for his efforts over the four-day event. Louis Oosthuizen earned $864K for his second-place showing. Tom Watson and Reavie were both out due to the cuts made at the end of the second round, but Woodland stood a good chance of earning something. Unfortunately, a hand injury got in the way and forced him to retire after the third round and a horrific 13-over showing on Saturday.

Here are the unofficial top-10 earners for the 2012 Masters:
1st, Bubba Watson, $1,440,000
2nd, Louis Oosthuizen $864,000
T-3rd, Lee Westwood, $284,000
T-3rd, Matt Kuchar, $284,000
T-3rd, Peter Hanson, $284,000
T-3rd, Phil Mickelson, $284,000
7th, Ian Poulter, $268,0000
T-8, Adam Scott, $244,000
T-8, Padraig Harrington, $244,000
T-8, Justin Rose, $244,000

Masters 2012: Gary Woodland Says 'I Just Wanted To Finish' Despite Hand Injury

Gary Woodland's 13-over performance in the third round signalled something was definitely wrong. Despite every indicator, however, the golfer was determined to see it through as long as he could in the 2012 Masters.

When a hand injury finally proved to be too much, Woodland finally withdrew from the biggest tournament in golf. But only after everyone else tried to convince him to do so

"I'd worked too hard to get here," said Woodland. "I probably should have stopped," he added, "but I thought maybe I could get a couple of pars coming in and shoot a low one tomorrow. But it was tough. I've never quit anything in my life. I just wanted to finish."

Jeff Shain reports, "He woke up with wrist stiffness, it got progressively worse and then hit him full force with his tee shot at the par-5 eighth hole."

“Butch [Woodland's trainer] and I were talking this morning," said Woodland. "He was saying that’s the best he’s seen me hit it. I thought I was right in the heart of this golf tournament and had a pretty good chance. For this to happen, I’m pretty upset now.”

Masters 2012: Par 3 Contest Cancelled Due To Inclement Weather

Here’s hoping that today’s bad news doesn’t turn into the same for tomorrow and the rest of the Master’s weekend. The Par 3 Contest that opens the official competitive action of the 2012 Masters was cancelled today due to "dangerous weather," even after several superb shots (captured in videos for you already in this storystream) from Craig Stadler and Mark Wilson among others. Padraig Harrington and Jonathan Byrd were declared the winners of the shortened competition. From the official release:

Byrd rolled in a birdie putt on the final hole to tie Harrington as sirens sounded to mark the suspension of play at Augusta National. Adam Scott reached 5 under earlier in his round, but finished at 4 under and was tied for third with Webb Simpson and Jerry Pate, both of whom were still on the course when play was halted.

The weather forecast for the opening round on Thursday and the second round on Friday is also calling for thunderstorms, so the outlook doesn’t look good for either day. Sunshine is coming over the weekend, so perhaps the tournament can be pushed back. Practice rounds were able to be completed this morning, but it seems the Par 3 Contest will not be completed after all.

VIDEO: Craig Stadler Earns Hole-In-One At Masters Par 3 Contest

The Walrus has made headlines already at the 2012 Masters with a hole-in-one during today's Par 3 Contest. Luke Donald won last year and has bowed out of this year's competition, which means a new winner will be named. Perhaps it will be Craig Stadler. Given a performance like the one below, it would not be surprising. Check it out:
