2022 Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational purse, winner’s share, prize money payout



The 2022 Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational purse is set for $2.3 million, with the winning team's share coming in at $607,620 ($303,810 each) -- less than the standard 15 percent payout according to the LPGA Tour's prize money distribution chart.

The first-place payout combines the standard 15 percent winner's payout, as prescribed by the LPGA Tour's prize money distribution chart, with second-place money, and averaging the two together.

That's how each of the teams will be paid out this week, combining and then equally dividing a team's position with the hypothetical position underneath it. The top 35 teams and ties are paid after the 36-hole cut is made to the 72-team field.

The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational field is headed by Nelly Korda, Jessica Korda, Lexi Thompson and more.

This is the 16th event of the 2022 LPGA Tour season. This is a 72-hole event with a cut to the top 35 teams and ties after 36 holes.

The event is played this year at Midland Country Club in Midland, Mich.
