The 2024 Aramco Saudi Ladies International has been a banger! The event was scheduled for February 15–18, 2024. Many prominent names, like Charley Hull, Shannon Tan, and others, clashed to grab the top spot. But in a full field of 120 players, Patty Tavatanakit emerged as a winner. With this, she also grabbed the staggering amount of prize money on offer.

The purse of this event is $5 million, the largest on the Ladies European Tour. It is also higher than the first three LPGA Tour events of the season combined. Let’s look at how much money the winner and other golfers will get at this lucrative event.

That attractive purse is also the highest outside the Majors and LPGA Tour’s CME Group Tour Championship, and that’s something LET CEO Alexandra Armas believes is important in inspiring more people to take up the game.

The 2024 event will mark the fifth iteration of the event. But in its short history, it has attracted many prominent names. Unfortunately, last year’s winner, Lydia Ko, did not take part this year. Still, the tournament saw many prominent names take part.
