The 2022 AIG Women’s Open prize money payout is from the $7.3 million purse, with 63 professional players who complete four rounds at Muirfield in Scotland, earning LPGA Tour prize money and an official-money paycheck this week.

The winner’s share of the AIG Women’s Open prize pool is at $1,095,000, with the second-place finisher taking home $720,028. The AIG Women’s Open prize money payout breakdown shows a payout of 15 percent of the purse to the winner, and how much each LPGA Tour player earns is guaranteed down to the last-place professional player, which is $1$15,578 for 63rd place.

Two amateurs made the cut and will not be paid for their finish.

The AIG Women’s Open field is headed by Brooke Henderson, Ashleigh Buhai, Jessic Korda, Lydia Ko and more.

This tournament started with 156 players, and a cut was made this week after two rounds. Every professional player in the field is paid for completing the event, but how much each player is paid at the 2022 AIG Women’s Open from the correct 2022 AIG Women’s Open full-field payout is based on their finish.

The 36-hole cut was made to the top 65 players and ties, and those players have an opportunity to move up the leaderboard in the final round.

The LPGA Tour cut rule is down to the top 70 and ties, with no secondary cut. The payout is modified when more than 70 players make the cut to ensure all players are paid.

Beyond money, there are important points, perks and benefits on the line for the field — in particular, the tournament winner.

The winner of this event will get 650 Race to the CME Globe points, as this is considered an official event on the LPGA Tour schedule.

Additionally, there are 100 Rolex Women’s World Golf Ranking points on the line for the winner.

While this event offers a significant payday, a win comes with the benefits that come with winning on the LPGA Tour. Winners of these events get a five-plus season exemption on the LPGA Tour, as well as berths into other big tour events.
