SCOTTISH OPEN PRIZE MONEY PAYOUT 2024

It's the point in the season where British links golf takes centre stage, with several huge names joining defending champion Rory McIlroy for the Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club.

While many more will arrive in the UK to contest the Open Championship at Royal Troon the following week, some players have jetted up and over to Scotland in order to gain some valuable practice time in similar conditions to the final Major of the men's campaign.

All 156 golfers at the Scottish Open will begin with an even chance of taking home the $1.575 million winner's check from an overall prize purse of $9 million in 2024. McIlroy banked that same figure in 2023 after just edging out Robert MacIntyre by one in North Berwick, with the total purse having been given a $1 million boost from the year before.

This season's solo runner-up will earn $985,500, and everyone else inside the top-22 could well receive a six-figure consolation prize, too. Meanwhile, even the player who ends solo 65th after making the weekend will collect $21,600.

Outside of the Signature Events and Major championships, the co-sanctioned tournament boasts one of the highest total prize purses on the PGA Tour this term. 

As far as the DP World Tour goes, however, the $9 million fund is the joint-highest golfers will compete for all season as the Scottish Open is one of three Rolex Series events prior to the DP World Tour playoffs in November. The Dubai Desert Classic and the BMW PGA Championship take place either side.

For PGA Tour players, this week represents one of their final chances to reach the FedEx Cup playoffs, with only four events remaining in the regular season. As well as the lucrative first-place prize, there are 500 FedEx Cup points for its champion. That equates to 8,000 Race To Dubai points for their European-based counterparts. It is also the final chance to secure an Open Championship spot (top-three not already exempt).

Below is the prize money payout breakdown for the 2024 Genesis Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club.
