There’s a broken record being played at LPGA Tour majors of late, but one that’s creating beautiful music to those competing in the events. As tour executives emphasize the goal of increasing the prize money payouts for each event, they’re making good on the promise. In 2023, all five of the tour’s biggest individual events paid out record amounts, including a $12 million payout from the USGA at the U.S. Women’s Open and a $10 million purse from the PGA of America at the KPMG Women’s PGA.

Will the trend continue in 2024—particularly with the public awakening going regarding women’s sports overall? If this week’s Chevron Championship is any indication, it likely will. On Wednesday, tournament organizers in conjunction with LPGA commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan, announced that the overall prize money payout for the event would be $7.9 million, a jump from $5.2 million in 2023. The winner on Sunday at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Texas, will earn $1.2 million.

In the three years since Chevron became the sponsor, purses for the tournament, previously held in the Palm Springs area and best known as the Dinah Shore, have risen $4.8 million. And the tour and Chevron announced that the title sponsorship has been extended until 2029.

At the Chevron this week, even those who don’t make the cut are going to be getting a little more. All pros in the field will receive $10,000 for their participation, up from $5,000 last year.

Here are the prize money payouts for every golfer who makes the cut this week in Texas. Come back shortly after the end of the tournament and we’ll update the list with names an individual paydays.
