British Masters, Purse, Prize Money And Field

The DP World Tour comes to The Belfry, but who’s playing and how much money is at stake?

After two events in Spain, the DP World Tour heads to England and The Belfry for the British Masters hosted by Danny Willett.

The 2016 Masters champion last won a tournament in October 2021, with a two-stroke win in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. The 34-year-old performed well at Augusta National last month, too, finishing in a tie for 11th, and he’ll be looking to take that form into this week’s event.  

Last year, Richard Bland edged out Guido Migliozzi in a playoff to become the oldest first-time winner on the European Tour at the age of 48. Bland’s stock has risen in recent months, too. He competed well in the WGC-Match Play, tying for 9th. He also only narrowly missed out on a debut appearance at this year’s Masters after coming just three world ranking places short of the top 50 position he needed for an automatic invite. He eventually reached the top 50, with a career-high of 48 last month, and currently sits at World No.53.

Last week, Bland played in the Catalunya Championship and finished disappointingly in a tie for 66th. Still, he’ll be hopeful of a repeat of last year’s success. Indeed, the tournament has favoured home-grown players over the last few years, with Matt Fitzpatrick winning in 2015 and Eddie Pepperell claiming victory in 2017. Pepperell, who finished tied for 11th last year, returns this week, too.

Arguably the highest-profile Brit in this year’s field is Lee Westwood. Westwood won this event in 2007 and hosted it in 2020. He currently sits lower than Bland in the world rankings, at 58th, but the former World No.1, who has 44 professional career wins, is sure to have the support of the home crowd.

Adri Arnaus, who beat Oliver Bekker in a mammoth playoff last week to claim his first DP World Tour title, is another name to look out for. The South African also competes this week, hoping to go one better after the rigours of that narrow defeat at PGA Catalunya.

The purse is the same as last year - £1.85m. The winner will earn £308,333, with the runner-up banking $205,555.
