After a chaotic start following its re-brand in South Africa, where the Omicron Covid-19 variant first emerged, the DP World Tour returns this week for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, with the event not just featuring a star-studded line-up, but also a brand new location.

Having previously been held at Abu Dhabi Golf Club since 2006, the iconic falcon clubhouse will not be on our TV screens this time around, as the competition is moving to Yas Links on Yas Island. A Kyle Phillips layout, it is based on links courses and features stunning views, across the water, of the Abu Dhabi skyline.

With a  new venue announced, it is only right that a recognised field joins too, with Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa and defending champion, Tyrrell Hatton, just some of the names competing at the first Rolex Series event of the year. 

Offering a tournament purse of $7 million in 2020, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship saw an increase of $1 million in 2021, with the purse remaining at $8 million for 2022. The winner will secure a cool $1,333,330 for his efforts.

Check out how the $8 million pot will be distributed below.

WHO WON THE 2021 ABU DHABI HSBC CHAMPIONSHIP?

Tyrrell Hatton shot a sparkling 6-under par in the final round on Sunday to win his fourth Rolex Series event. The Englishman had started the day one shot behind Rory McIlroy but, in an almighty tussle, Hatton would come out on top, finishing three shots clear of Jason Scrivener in second and four ahead of McIlroy in third.

WHO WILL BE PLAYING IN THE 2022 ABU DHABI HSBC CHAMPIONSHIP?

A number of huge names will be participating in the first event of 2022, with McIlroy and Hatton returning. DP World Tour winner, Collin Morikawa will also be making his debut at the event with Viktor Hovland, Tommy Fleetwood, Shane Lowry, Lee Westwood and Adam Scott also part of the bumper field.
