Viktor Hovland is now a two-time Hero World Challenge champion after successfully defending his title in the Bahamas.

Hero World Challenge

Hosted by Woods, the Hero World Challenge is a golf tournament which takes place every December at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas. Featuring a small field of just 20 players, the event is part of the PGA Tour schedule but does not offer any FedEx Cup points. Players are also required to be in the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking to qualify.

A cut is not made after 36 holes, with each player in the field allowed to play all 72 holes. All players who finish four rounds of the tournament will therefore earn money, with the likes of Justin Thomas, Matt Fitzpatrick and Jordan Spieth all competing in 2022.

So how much will each player win? Here’s the full purse breakdown for the Hero World Challenge…
