Corales Puntacana Championship Prize Money Payout 2024

While many of the world’s highest-profile players are competing in the latest of the PGA Tour’s signature events, the RBC Heritage, in South Carolina this week, for other Tour pros, there is the Corales Puntacana Championship at Puntacana Resort & Club's Corales Golf Club.

Matt Wallace beat Nicolai Hojgaard to claim the title in 2023, his first win on the PGA Tour, and that handed him a payday of $684,000 from the $3.8m purse.

This year, there is even more at stake, with players competing for a payout of $4m, meaning whoever lifts the trophy on Sunday evening will do so having made themselves $720,000 wealthier.

However, this week's purse is small change compared to the $20m being paid out at the other PGA Tour event at Harbour Town, where the winner will earn just $400,000 less than the whole prize fund in the Dominican Republic this week.

Nevertheless, players are competing for more than just financial incentives. The winner will earn 300 FedEx Cup points, and the tournament offers an opportunity to claim world ranking points, with a projected 25.4 heading the way of this week’s winner.

While Matt Wallace won last year’s title, he is not in this week’s field. However, the player he beat is. Since losing by one shot to the Englishman in 2023, Dane Nicolai Hojgaard’s career has gone from strength to strength, including an appearance for Team Europe in the Ryder Cup at Marco Simone and a respectable finish of T16 at The Masters.

Hojgaard is also the highest-ranked player in field, at 34th, so he will be confident of his maiden PGA Tour win this week.

Other high-profile players in the field include Alex Noren, who was part of the winning European Ryder Cup team in 2018, and seven-time PGA Tour winner Billy Horschel. WM Phoenix Open runner-up Charley Hoffman plays too, as well as rising star Alex Fitzpatrick and former World No.4 Matt Kuchar.

Chad Ramey, who won in 2022, also plays as well as Joel Dahmen, who won a year earlier.
