Players on the LPGA Tour will compete for more than $100 million for the first time on a record-breaking 2023 schedule.
The LPGA Tour has announced that its global schedule will feature 33 events in 12 countries, with a total prize pool of $101.4m (£85m) up for grabs.
The combined purses are more than double what was paid out on the Tour just a decade ago, with the five women’s golf majors accounting for $37.9 million of the total prize money, while each tournament carries a purse of at least $1.5 million.
“Thanks to our incredible athletes, partners, volunteers and fans, 2023 will be a banner year for the LPGA Tour,” said LPGA Commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan. “The program includes new events, high purses, unique formats and world-class golf courses.
“Our athletes are playing for more total prize money than ever in history, and we have over 500 hours of television broadcast. All of these things combine to make the LPGA the leading women’s professional sports property in the world.
“The LPGA Tour has never had better or more committed partners who see the business value of investing in women’s sport and who understand how their partnerships uplift women and girls on and off the golf course. “
The 2023 program includes the Hanwha LifePlus International Crown, a team competition featuring golfers from the world’s top eight countries, while Team Europe will chase a third consecutive win over Team USA at the Solheim Cup next September.
With the 2023 Solheim Cup at Finca Cortesin, Spain a year away, Trish Johnson and Henni Koyack predict who could make Team Europe next September.
The Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions kicks off the season Jan. 19-22, with the season continuing through the CME Group Tour Championship in Florida Nov. 16-19.
