Last season’s inaugural event was the first regular tournament in history to be co-sanctioned by the DP World Tour and the JGTO, as Australia’s Lucas Herbert sealed his third DP World Tour title, while Hiroshi Iwata - a four-time winner on the Japan Golf Tour - was the leading home player in fourth position.

This year, the action moves to the Taiheiyo Club Gotemba Course, where stars of the DP World Tour and JGTO will compete for a US$2 million prize fund amidst majestic views of Mount Fuji.

The 2024 ISPS HANDA – CHAMPIONSHIP is the second time the DPWT visits Japan and builds on a partnership between the DP World Tour, PGA TOUR and JGTO that will see the top three players on the JGTO Order of Merit earn membership onto the DP World Tour each season.

The tournament is the final regular event in the DP World Tour’s Asian Swing, which is the third of five new ‘Global Swings’ included on the 2024 Race to Dubai. These Swings will be followed by The Back Nine and then the DP World Tour Play-Offs.

Each Swing will have its own individual Swing Rankings (Major Championships do not count towards these). Each champion of the Swing Rankings will earn US$200,000 from an overall US$1,000,000 bonus pool and will also qualify for each of the events on The Back Nine.

The tournament also deepens the DP World Tour’s long-standing relationship with ISPS HANDA, the organisation founded by Japanese philanthropist Dr Haruhisa Handa in the belief that sport has the power to inspire, transform, and unite people and communities across social, racial and socio-economic barriers.

ISPS HANDA has supported events on the DP World Tour International Schedule for almost a decade, including the ISPS HANDA Wales Open (2012-14 and 2020), ISPS HANDA Perth International (2012-14 and 2016), ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf (2013, 2016, 2018), (ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth (2017-19), ISPA HANDA Vic Open (2019-20), ISPS HANDA UK Championship (2020), ISPS HANDA World Invitational presented by Modest! Golf Management (2021) and ISPS HANDA Championship in Spain (2022).
