Total bag of the 72-hole tournament is €3,000,000. Like most DP World Tour events, a cut is made on the Golf National GC course after 36 holes. However, only players who have completed all four rounds will be able to win a portion of the total purse.

However, the event offers certain benefits only to its winner. The main feature of winning the European Masters event is that the winner will receive 16.67% of the purse, which is the standard amount according to the European Tour prize distribution table.

According to the prize distribution table, the champion of the event will receive €500,000 of the total purse. He will also get around 18.5 points from the Official World Golf Rankings, with points being available based on the strength of the course. Additionally, the champion will earn a two-plus season exemption on the DP World Tour and spots in other major Tour events.

There are 4,250 Race to Dubai points awarded to the field this week. And the golfer will earn 710 points after winning the event. Notably, the top five players on the Race to Dubai leaderboard at the end of the season will receive part of the €5 million bonus. Winning the event will help DP Tour players be in contention to win this bonus pool.
