On Tuesday it was announced that the 20 players in the field at this year’s Hero World Challenge—14 among the top 25 in the World Ranking—would be competing for the new and improved prize money payout of $4.5 million at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas. Mind you, it was an afterthought in the wake of Tiger Woods speaking to the press ahead of his first competitive start since ankle fusion surgery in April, for the first time, but it wasn’t insignificant as it’s a bump from $3.5 million a year ago and a brief stop on the road to $5.5 million for 2024.

More interesting is the fact that organizers of the tournament that raises money for Tiger Woods’ TGR Foundation got a little creative in distributing the added cash to the participants. The winner of Tiger’s event—Scottie Scheffler with a made-it-look-easy three-shot win over Sepp Straka—still claimed $1 million, a handsome if modest reward given the purse inflation in the men’s game. But now the runner-up receives $450,000 compared to $375,000 the year before. Similarly, all 18 other spots are getting prize money payout bumps of at least $20,000, with last place receiving $120,000.

Suffice to say, the event continues to be a nice working vacation for those competing.

Here's the prize money payout for everybody in the field.
