2019 Hero World Challenge purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2019 Hero World Challenge purse is set for $3.5 million, with the winner's share coming in at $1,000,000 -- more than the standard 18 percent payout according to the PGA Tour's prize money distribution chart.

The Hero World Challenge field is headed by Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm.

The 18-player field is not considered an invitational, as its criteria to qualify is to be among the top 16 available players in the Official World Golf Ranking top 50 at the cutoff date. There are two sponsor exemptions.

This is the last PGA Tour-sanctioned event played with each player on their own ball. The event is unofficial, dubbed a Challenge event by the PGA Tour. The winner does not get FedEx Cup points. However, the winner does get Official World Golf Ranking points.

This week's winner does not get an invitation into the Masters, nor the Sentry Tournament of Champions, The Players Championship and or PGA Championship. However, almost all of these players are in all four of those events.

The event is played this year at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas.
