·2 min read

SOUTHERN PINES, North Carolina ­– For the first time in women’s golf history, the top two players in a field will earn seven figures. The 77th U.S. Women’s Open features a historic $10 million purse, nearly double last year’s, thanks to the addition of ProMedica as presenting sponsor.

The winner on Sunday at Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club will earn $1,800,000. Runner-up will take home $1,080,000.

No player on the LPGA has made $1 million this season. Jennifer Kupcho, winner of the year’s first major tops the tour with $917,112. She earned $750,000 for capturing the Chevron Championship.

For more perspective, consider that $1.5 million purses on the LPGA pay out six figures to the top two finishers. This week, the player who places 22nd will earn $102,905.

Players who missed the cut this week earned $8,000, double last year’s amount.
