The AIG Women’s Open is a major title in women’s golf, and this year the tournament features big names like Olympic gold medalist Nelly Korda and Sophia Popov. The tournament promises lots of action, with top players competing to take home the important win. This year, the event will be played at the Muirfield, Scotland.

Popov won last season, scoring seven-under-par and winning by two strokes. Established in 1976, the tournament comes with a rich history and was established by the Ladies’ Golf Union. It is interesting to note that, unlike the men’s Open Championship, the women’s event does not adhere to a links-only rule. This tournament has also been a part of the schedule permanently since 1994.

This season, the AIG Women’s Open will have a prize pool of $5.8 million, a stark increase to the previous $1.3 million purse. If that wasn’t a pleasant and new benchmark, it will be raised by another million in 2022. “We are absolutely committed to elevating the AIG Women’s Open and enhancing its status as one of golf’s premier Championships,” said Martin Slumbers, The R&A’s Chief Executive. 

They have indeed made a meaningful change for the event, and Slumbers thanked AIG for the same. Two years ago, AIG was the event’s sponsor and had increased funding to $4.5 million from $1.25 million. Let’s take a look at the complete breakdown of the cash prize, where the winner pockets $870,000.
