The 2019 European Tour Race to Dubai bonus pool purse is set for $5 million, with the winner’s share coming in at $2,000,000 — coming in the form of a cash bonus for the winner of the season-long Race to Dubai, which is a points-based system to determine the best European Tour player throughout the season.
After the regular season, the top 70 players in the standings qualified for the three-event season-ending series. However, the top 70 available players in the standings qualified for the first event, the Turkish Airlines Open, which offers an enhanced number of Race to Dubai points.
The top 60 available players in the standings after the Turkish Airlines Open qualified for the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa.
After the Nedbank Golf Challenge, the top 50 available players qualified for the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. The DP World Tour Championship also has a $8 million purse.
As part of a change to the Final Series, the first-place payouts for the three events increased substantially to $2 million for the Turkish Airlines Open, $2.5 million for the Nedbank Golf Challenge and $3 million for the DP World Tour Championship. The rest of the field was paid based on a $5 million purse.
The top five players in the final standings are paid part of the $5 million bonus pool. Previously, the top 10 players were paid from the same $5 million bonus pool. A player must satisfy European Tour membership requirements to collect from the prize pool.
