The 2016 Hero World Challenge golf tournament is taking place this week from December 1-4, 2016, at the Albany resort located on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs at the 2016 Hero World Challenge.



The Hero World Challenge is limited to just 18 players and the tournament is hosted by Tiger Woods who is also playing in the event marking his return to competitive golf after a 16 month absence.
