Prize money is one aspect that the DP World Tour has recently been applauded for. The Europe-based professional golf tour boasts a total budget of $148.5 million, and the same has been evident in the inflated prize purses of its events so far. However, things seem to be different for the 2024 SDC Championship, where, surprisingly, the event has a smaller purse!

The 2024 SDC Championship marks the first leg of the last two events scheduled in South Africa for the DP World Tour’s International Swing phase. Per The Golf News Net, the event has a total prize purse of almost $1.5 million ($1518615, to be precise). Out of the total prize money, 17% will go to the winner, as per the European Tour’s standard. This means that the winner will earn a total of $255,000.
