The 2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic purse is set for $9.2 million, with the PGA Tour prize money this week paid out at the conclusion of the tournament staged at Detroit Golf Club in Detroit, Michigan.

The 2024 Rocket Mortgage Classic field is a 156-player roster headed by defending champion Rickie Fowler, last week's playoff runner-up Tom Kim, Cam Young and more of the world's best players. Miles Russell, a 15-year-old amateur, is making his PGA Tour debut in this event, but he cannot earn money if he makes the cut.

The PGA Tour winner this week earns 18 percent of the total purse, meaning the winner's share is $1,656,000. After that 18 percent payout to first, the PGA Tour has a standard PGA Tour's prize money distribution formula that will pay any player who makes the cut in the top 65 and ties after two rounds are completed.

The prize money payout for the week is adjusted if more than 65 professionals make the cut, actually adding money to the stated purse to account for additional players above those 65 pros.

This is the 29th PGA Tour event of the 2024 PGA Tour schedule.

The winner of this event earns 500 FedEx Cup points, as is the case with standard PGA Tour FedEx Cup events. With just six tournaments left before the FedEx Cup playoffs, players are trying to get inside the top 70 in the ranking at the end of the Wyndham Championship to qualify for the first leg of the playoffs in Memphis.

The champion will also enjoy the benefits of winning PGA Tour event, including a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour and an exemption into next year's Masters, PGA Championship, The Players and The Sentry in 2025.
