The first event on the 2024 LPGA calendar is all set to kick off. The Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions is scheduled to start on the 18th of January and will go on until Sunday, the 21st, at Lake None Golf and Country Club in Orlando, Florida. Many of the world’s best female golfers would be teeing it off at the tournament, making it a much-anticipated start to the year.

However, is the tournament only offering a trophy and a title, not to mention glory? No, not at all. The players would be competing for something else as well, none other than a cut from the total prize money. Well, it makes sense when such a powerful field gears themselves up for a clash!

The limited-field golfing event that is set to kick off on January 18 will see a total of 35 professionals who have emerged victorious on the LPGA Tour over the past two seasons. Moreover, this year’s field would be one of the strongest to date, including the likes of current No. 1 Lilia Vu and former No. 1 Lydia Ko, along with Alexa Pano and Rose Zhang.

Well, the professionals would be playing their game through the 72 holes without a cut over the weekend in a strokeplay format. However, they would be accompanied by approximately 50 celebrities, including the likes of NBC’s Dylan Dreyer, former “The Bachelor” contestants Wells Adams and Ben Higgins, and soccer legend Landon Donovan, among others. They would be duking it out in a modified Stableford format.

Brooke Henderson won the previous edition of the tournament and would be hoping to replicate her 2023 victory as she defends her title in the upcoming event. Nelly Korda is a fan favorite to win the event. Although she did not enjoy any wins last season, the year 2022 saw her emerge victorious at The ANNIKA driven by Gainbridge at Pelican, enabling her to participate this year as well.

The champion would be able to take home the title and the trophy. What’s more, along with a huge boost to her Rolex Rankings, the victor would also earn 500 Race to the CME Globe points, getting a kickstart on the season-ending rankings. But even so, the focus naturally falls on the number of dollar bills being offered.

What will be the prize money distribution at the first 2024 LPGA event?

The 2024 Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions would provide a hefty payout to the golfer who emerges victorious, along with the points and the trophy. While the celebrities would be battling for their own $500,000 prize purse, the pros would be hoping to take a cut of the $1.5 million prize purse. Since the pool remains the same as last year, the breakdown is also expected to be the same as in 2023, with a total of $225,000 being offered to the champ.
