Portugal Masters 2022: Prize Breakdown and Winner Payment

The Portugal Masters kicks off this weekend after a demo exhibition in Spain. While the tournament will be overshadowed by LIV Golf’s season finale event in Miami alongside the Bermuda PGA Tour Championship, there’s plenty to look forward to at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura.

The winner of the last edition of the Portugal Masters, Belgian golfer Thomas Pieters, is absent from the 132-member playing field. However, there are former champions lurking around, waiting for an opportunity to pounce.

Englishman Tom Lewis has won the event twice, once in 2011 and the other in 2018. The 31-year-old has a special connection with the tournament. His only two DP Tour wins came at the Portugal Masters; he is also the only golfer to have won the event twice.

Steven Brown, 35, joins his compatriot as a former Portugal Masters champion. The Brit won the 2019 edition of the event by a one stroke margin against the South African duo of Brandon Stone and Justin Walters.

While the golfers mentioned above have endured dry spells lately, the same cannot be said for Yannik Paul. The German golfer emerged victorious from the Mallorca Open last week by a one stroke margin. Ranked 29th in the DP Tour standings, Paul has been making steady inroads in recent months. He finished tied for 8th and 21st respectively in the Spanish events before his victory in Mallorca.

Last but not least, the highest-ranked golfer on Portugal’s Masters roster will be world No. 67 Robert MacIntyre. The 26-year-old golfer has been in scintillating form this season, earning his second DP Tour victory by winning the Italian Open at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club last month. With crucial Ryder Cup points heading into next year’s prestigious event, the Scotsman will be looking to secure his place on one of his most successful runs.
