ScotlandRoyal & Ancient (R&A) on August 18 announced to increase the bonus fund to $ 5.8 million for a private major in the 45th tournament at Carnousties from August 19 to August 22.

Compared to the previous year, the Women’s Open bonus fund this time increased by 1.3 million USD. This year’s champion will receive $870,000. AIG Group will also add a million dollars to next year’s tournament. The bonus fund will then more than double their first title sponsor, back in 2018.

“We’ve just set a new bonus cap at the women’s major, and will continue to do so next year, thanks to the support of AIG. We hope this will encourage other events to reward more, thereby helping women’s golf progress. further financially,” the announcement from R&A quoted CEO Martin Slumbers as saying.

However, The Open women cannot compare with men, even though they belong to the same R&A. Last month, Collin Morikawa received $2.07 million in $11.5 million in prize money for winning his 149th game at the Royal St. George’s.

But with a new financial milestone, the major established by the R&A from 1976 topped the prize money in women’s golf, breaking the peak of $ 5.5 million at the US Women’s Open. However, major owners of the American Golf Association (USGA) receive more than their peers. Yuka Saso received a million dollars for winning the women’s “US Open” in June.

Of the remaining three women’s majors, the Women’s PGA and Evian Championship both finished third at $4.5 million, while ANA Inspiration came in last with $3.1 million.

Considering the current women’s golf bonus, only the Tour Championship of the LPGA Tour is higher than the major in terms of both the fund size and the share for the champion. In 2019, Kim Sei Young held $1.5 million in five million dollars. Last year due to Covid-19, the fund had three million USD, of which Ko Jin Young received 1.1 million USD.
