Genesis Scottish Open prize money 2024

How much will players earn in this PGA Tour-DP World Tour co-sanctioned event this week?

 

The Genesis Scottish Open is a special event held at the Renaissance Club in East Lothian, on Scotland’s east coast.

The tournament has found a permanent home, just over the fence firm Muirfield, and the venue has played host to some great winners including Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele.

The Genesis Scottish Open has managed to secure the perfect spot on the calendar just before The Open Championship, allowing the players the opportunity to hone their games around the demands of links golf.

Not only does the event host a top-class field each year, but the prize money has also increased significantly, given its status as a Rolex Series event on the DP World Tour.

In 2023, Rory McIlroy snatched victory from the hands of Robert MacIntyre on the 72nd hole, cutting a memorable 2 iron into the wind on his way to a superb winning birdie.

The Northern Irishman pocketed $1,575,000 for his troubles. The total purse for this year’s event is $9 million once again, and the winner will receive $1,575,000 as confirmed to NCG by the DP World Tour.
