When KPMG came on as title sponsor of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in 2015, they entered the deal with three promises: to play the event at sites that have hosted men’s majors, to air the major on network television and to increase the purse. In 2022, all three promises have been fulfilled: the event is hosted at Congressional, will be featured on NBC for six hours over the weekend and the purse has been doubled from $4.5 million to $9 million.
“Doubling the purse from $4.5 million to $9 million is another example of KPMG and the PGA of America’s dogged commitment to the LPGA and our athletes. We could not be more grateful for their steadfast leadership in growing the women’s game and providing our athletes and future athletes with opportunities commensurate with their world-class talent,” Mollie Marcoux Samaan, LPGA Commissioner, said.
The increase puts the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship purse amongst the highest in women’s golf, bested only by the U.S. Women’s Open ($12 million).
