Payday at Harbour Town

Here's the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2024 RBC Heritage

There’s something different about the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C., primarily because there’s something different about the golf course compared to other venues that host PGA Tour events. It’s easily distinguishable as a Pete Dye design, with the railroad ties and the visual deception that comes into play off the tee and with shots into the green. The course is just 7,099 yards in length, with among the smallest greens on tour. You don’t have to be a bomber to win, and frankly this is a venue where ball-strikers typically thrive.

Consider this list of past winners in the last 25 years:

In the late 1960s, Jack Nicklaus landed the design contract for Harbour Town, then turned it over to his new partner, Pete Dye, who was determined to distinguish his work from that of rival Robert Trent Jones. Soon after Harbour Town opened in late November 1969 (with a victory by Arnold Palmer in the Heritage Classic), the course debuted on America’s 100 Greatest as one of the Top 10. It was a total departure for golf at the time. No mounds, no elevated tees, no elevated greens—just low-profile and abrupt change. Tiny greens hung atop railroad ties directly over water hazards. Trees blocked direct shots. Harbour Town gave Pete Dye national attention and put Jack Nicklaus, who made more than 100 inspection trips in collaborating with Dye, in the design business. Pete’s wife, Alice, also contributed, instructing workers on the size and shape of the unique 13th green, a sinister one edged by cypress planks.

Mind you, it didn't matter how the course was set up or who that might have favored—the way Scottie Scheffler has been playing, everyone else is playing each week for second place.

It happened again on Monday morning, Sunday rains delaying the inevitable. Scheffler had a five-shot lead with four holes to play, letting the cushion allow him to bogey the final hole at Harbour Town and still win by three shots with a final-round 68.

Scheffler did it again against another steller field, with the RBC Heritage being among the tour’s signature tournaments—offering a $20 million overall prize money payout with $3.6 million going to the winner—the field includes the top-ranked players on tour. Eight of the top 10 in the OWGR were competing, and 43 of the top 50 overall are in the field. (It’s not just the purse that’s attractive but the fact there’s no cut in the event, guaranteeing a solid payday so long as you play all 72 holes.)

Below is the prize money payout for each golfer at this week’s tournament. Come back shortly after the conclusion of the event and we’ll update this list with individual names and paydays.
