The 2024 Hero Dubai Desert Classic prize money payout is from the $9 million purse, with 73 professional players who complete four rounds at Emirates Golf Club in Dubai, United Arab Emirates earning DP World Tour prize money and an official-money paycheck this week.

The winner's share of the Hero Dubai Desert Classic prize pool is at $1,530,000, with the second-place finisher taking home $990,000. The Hero Dubai Desert Classic prize money payout breakdown shows a payout of more than 16.67 percent of the purse to the winner, and how much each DP World Tour player earns is guaranteed down to the last-place player.

The Hero Dubai Desert Classic field is headed by Rory McIlroy, Cameron Young, Tommy Fleetwood, Thorbjorn Olesen and more.

This tournament started with 126 players, and a cut was made this week after two rounds. Every professional player in the field is paid for completing the event, but how much each player is paid at the 2024 Hero Dubai Desert Classic from the correct 2024 Hero Dubai Desert Classic full-field payout is based on their finish.

The 36-hole cut was made to the top 65 players and ties, meaning all qualifying players have an opportunity to move up the leaderboard in the final round.

The 2024 Hero Dubai Desert Classic prize money payout is only true after the DP World Tour cut is made, with the DP World Tour adding money to the purse if more than 65 professionals make the cut to ensure all players are paid. One amateur made the cut and will not be paid for their finish.

With the DP World Tour cut rule down to the top 65 and ties, players are subject to the DP World Tour's secondary cut if more than 78 players make the cut.

What else is on the line

Beyond money, there are important points, perks and benefits on the line for the field -- in particular, the tournament winner.

The winner of this event will get 1,335 DP World Tour points, as this is considered an official event on the DP World Tour schedule.

Additionally, there are approximately 30 Official World Golf Ranking points on the line for the winner.

While this event offers a significant payday, a win comes with the benefits that come with winning on the DP World Tour. Winners of these events get a two-plus season exemption on the DP World Tour, as well as berths into other big tour events.
