After last week’s Rolex Series drama, we head to Le Golf National for the Open de France. Here’s the 2019 Open de France prize money.
Last year, this event still held Rolex Series status with the Ryder Cup being held at the course a few months later.
With this the prize money was heavily inflated and the prize fund was €7,000,000. Alex Noren won the event and took home a handsome €1,008,577.
He returns to defend his title this year with Martin Kaymer playing in his 13th consecutive French Open.
The champion won’t be quite as wealthy this time around as the event has returned to its regular status. Here’s a breakdown of the 2019 Open de France prize money.
