2019 US Women’s Open purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2019 US Women's Open purse is set for $5.5 million, with the winner's share coming in at $1,000,000 -- different from the standard 15 percent payout according to the LPGA Tour's prize money distribution chart.

This is the first time the winner of a women's golf tournament will earn $1 million, and the total purse was increased $500,000 from the 2018 US Women's Open purse, from which Ariya Jutanugarn earned $900,000. At the CME Group Tour Championship at the end of the LPGA season, the winner will earn $1.5 million, combining the tournament purse and the bonus for winning the season-long Race to the CME Globe.

Each professional missing the cut is paid $4,000 by the USGA, which presents this championship. Amateur expenses in competing in the championship are covered by the USGA via stipend.

The US Women's Open field is headed by Lexi Thompson, Sei Young Kim, Jessica Korda and more.

The event is played this year at Country Club of Charleston in Charleston, S.C.
