(AP Photo/Seth Wenig) Tony Finau’s double bogey on the final hole of the U.S. Open proved very costly. 

How costly? Roughly $214,372. 

Finau started the final hole at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club tied for third place with Dustin Johnson. That tie would have been worth $683,832 to each golfer. But after Finau got into trouble off the tee, his 6 on the par-4 dropped him to fifth place, where he “settled” for $469,460. 

Finau finished four strokes behind Brooks Koepka, who repeated as U.S. Open champ

The payout for the 28-year-old Salt Lake City native still is the fourth-highest of his career.

Finau gained some notoriety at his first Masters in April. Finau twisted his ankle celebrating an ace during the Par-3 Contest, a day before the tournament got underway. 

Despite the injury, Finau finished 10th and secured an invite to next year’s Masters. 

His only PGA Tour win is the Puerto Rican Open in March 2016. He pocketed $540,000.
