It’s the biggest payday on the LPGA.

The winner of the CME Group Tour Championship is walking away with $1.5 million, the largest prize in the history of women’s golf.

Jin Young Ko shot a final-round 63 to win the season-ending tournament to bank that huge first-place check. She went bogey-free with nine birdies on Sunday and hit an amazing 63 consecutive greens in regulation.

It’s her second straight year winning the event at Tiburón Golf Club at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida. Nasa Hataoka tried to give chase but came up a shot short. She’ll pocket $480,000 for her efforts. A tie for third this week is good for $268,657.
