The purse money and other details about the tournament

The purse money of the HSBC Women’s World Championship of 2022 is $1.7 million. The winner of the championship would receive $255,000 according to the standard 15 percent payout according to the LPGA Tour’s prize money distribution chart. The caddie of the winner will also win 10%.

Since there is no cut after the first two rounds, all players would receive the prize money. It is a general rule in the LPGA Tour not to make cuts to the top 70 players. There are 66 players on the field this year.

The purse money has increased a little bit from last year since it was $1.6 million in 2021. Hyo Joo Kim won the winner’s share of $240,000 last year. She had won the tournament with an overall score of 17-under 271.

Patty Tavatanakit, Inbee Park, and Xiyu Lin got tied for a third-place, whereas Hannah Green secured the second position. The second place won $149,262 of the purse money, and each third prize winner bagged $86,487.
