Hero Dubai Desert Classic

Founded in 1989, the Dubai Desert Classic is one of the staple events on the DP World Tour schedule. It was the first European Tour event on the Arabian Peninsula and its influence has helped paving the way for golf in the Middle East.

This prestigious event has been won by some of golf’s biggest names since its inception, including major winners Seve Ballesteros, Ernie Els, Tiger Woods, Henrik Stenson, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, and Bryson DeChambeau.

Part of the Rolex Series, the tournament offers one of the largest prize pots of the regular DP World Tour season, meaning it regularly attracts some of world’s best players competing on the European circuit. In 2023, this includes World No 1 McIlroy, as well as Ryder Cup stars Shane Lowry, Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton.

So how much will each player win? Here’s the full purse breakdown for the Hero Dubai Desert Classic…
