A working vacation. That's essentially what's going on this week at the Hero World Challenge. For those competing in the 18-player, no-cut field, the ask from tournament host Tiger Woods is that you compete in a pre-tournament pro-am, then play four rounds for a $3.5 million purse. Seems pretty reasonable, no? Last place makes $100,000, and you get to spend time relaxing in the Bahamas at plush Albany Resort. First place gets you $1 million, and more World Ranking points than if you had won at 16 "official" PGA Tour events. Lots to play for and not many people playing for it is a good formula.

How much does the entire field in the tournament benefitting the Tiger Woods Foundation have a chance at earning? Here's the prize money payout for every place in the tournament. We'll update the totals on Saturday night when the tournament end, so you can get a sense of who will be able to afford some pretty snazzy stocking stuffers come Christmas.

2: $400,000
3: $250,000
4: $175,000
