The CIMB Classic dates back to 2010 and it became a PGA event in 2013. It is co-sanctioned by both the PGA Tour and the Asian Tour. The CIMB Classic is a a no-cut tournament which helps to encourage top players to play even though they have to travel all the way to Malaysia for the tournament. All 80 or so players who complete the CIMB Classic will earn a paycheck this week.

Even though the CIMB Classic is being played in 2016 it is the second PGA tournament for the 2017 season. Total prize money up for grabs at the 2016 CIMB Classic is $7 million. The same amount of prize money up for grabs in this tournament last year and since 2014.
