Nissan purse increases

The purse for the Nissan Open has increased to $5.2 million, and the winner will receive a record $936,000.
The Nissan Open, which is Feb. 12-18 at Riviera Country Club, increased its purse by $100,000. The tournament’s first purse – in 1926 – was just $10,000. Rory Sabbatini will defend his title. No word yet on whether Tiger is officially in or not. We’d like to think so, considering this is his ”home” tournament, and it’s about the only thing he’s never won!
