Ranking LPGA Tour tournament purses from biggest to smallest for 2022



The LPGA Tour has 34 official tournaments on its 2022 schedule, with prize money totaling $85,700,000. There's a lot of money on the line from the beginning of the season in January to the end of the season with the culmination of the Race to the CME Globe at the CME Group Tour Championship in November.

However, not every tournament has the same purse. In fact, purses in LPGA Tour events range from $1.2 million to $10 million in 2022. The smallest purse belongs to the season-opening Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, with a purse of $1.2 million. The largest purse belongs to the U.S. Women's Open, which saw its purse increased to $10 million in 2022.

There are purses of every size in between. All five majors have a purse of at least $4.5 million, and 13 other non-major tournaments have a purse of at least $2 million.

Take a look at the full list of LPGA Tour purses from largest to smallest.
