The 2019 Australian Open Grand Slam tennis tournament for men and women players on the ATP and WTA circuits is taking place this month this month from January 14-27, 2019, on the outdoor hard courts at the Melbourne Park sports center located in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs for the doubles tennis players at the 2019 Australian Open.



The Australian Open is the first of the four major tournaments played annually. The majors are the best tennis tournaments played each year and and they also pay the most prize money. All four majors pay men and women doubles players equal amounts of prize money.

The prize money listed below is not cumulative, players only earn the amounts shown for the last round they advance to. All prize money has been converted from Australian dollars to American dollars.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2019 Australian Open for all players is $44.63 million.

How Much Money is Dustin Johnson Getting to Play in 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship?

The big news in the world of golf this week is that Dustin Johnson, the #3 ranked golfer in the world, is playing in the 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. How much money is Dustin Johnson getting in an appearance fee to play this week in the 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship?



Before we get to the appearance fee money Dustin Johnson is getting here are a few relevant golf facts this week. The 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship is a European Tour event. The PGA Tour does have its own event this week at the Desert Classic but when you see the facts below it's easy to see why Dustin Johnson is playing in Abu Dhabi this week

The total prize money up for grabs at the 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship is just $7 million vs just $5.9 million in prize money for the Desert Classic. The winner of the 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship will get $1.17 million vs a $1.062 million payday for the winner of the Desert Classic.


How Much Money is Dustin Johnson Getting to Play in 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship

  • $3.5 million

Dustin Johnson is getting a guaranteed $3.5 million appearance fee to play in the 2019 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. The same amount of money he got for appearing here last year. It's pretty easy to see why he's playing in Abu Dhabi this week. If he wins the event he'll get another $1.17 million for $4.67 million total.

If he played at the PGA Tour event this week he'd have to win to get a million dollars. What golfer isn't going to choose a guaranteed payday of $3.5 million over the possibility of winning $1 million in any given week?

The $3.5 million appearance fee is huge. That's what Tiger Woods used to get to play in places like Abu Dhabi when he was the #1 ranked player in the world. 

In addition to Dustin Johnson, top ranked players also playing in Abu Dhabi this week are Brooks Koepka, the #2 ranked player in the world, along with Justin Rose (ranked #1), Henrik Stenson, Rory McIlroy, Matt Kuchar and Tommy Fleetwood. No doubt most of those players are also getting appearance fees this week but just how much is anybody's guess.
