Nicolai won the championship with a score of 24 under 264. Meanwhile, England’s Jordan Smith secured the second position with a score of 20 under par.

The Classic silver purse

After the two rounds of the Classic, last week’s winner, Nicolai Hojgaard, could not qualify To cut, while second-place winner Jordan Smith tied for 74th. Although the events are played on the same course, after two rounds, it clearly shows that there are many differences between the Classic and the Championship.

However, there is some similarity between the Championship and the DP World Tour Classic. Handbag money of the Classic is the same as the championship of Ras Al Khaimah last week; $2 million. For the first prize winner, the prize money will be $333,330.
