Dane Nicolai Hojgaard produced a solid finish to withstand the challenge from Jordan Smith and claim a four-shot victory in the Ras al Khaimah Championship at Al Hamra Golf Club last week. Now he’s back at the same course, hoping to add to his two DP World Tour titles in the Ras Al Khaimah Classic. Runner-up Smith will also return with reason to believe he can go one better than last week. He won the Ras Al Khaimah Golf Challenge at this course in 2016, so it’s a venue he clearly favours.

Like last week’s tournament held at the par 72, 7325-yard course, this is the first Ras Al Khaimah Classic, which takes place following the postponement of the Qatar Masters. It’s the fourth of five UAE-based events on the DP World Tour calendar, following last month’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, the Slync.io Dubai Desert Classic, and last week’s tournament.

With many of the field having had very recent experience of the course, there’ll be plenty of players feeling confident that they can claim sizable chunks of the tournament purse. Meanwhile, there’s a familiar feel to that prize pot, too: $2m - the same as the purse for the previous event. The winner will claim the first prize of $333,330. Here’s the full tournament prize money breakdown.
