U.S. Women's Open purse

The final round of the 2019 U.S. Women’s Open at the Country Club of Charleston in South Carolina is set to get underway on Sunday, as Yu Liu and Celine Boutier are tied for the lead heading into the final 18 holes of the tournament.

The purse for the U.S. Women’s Open is $5.5 million this year, an increase of $500,000 from the year before. In fact, it’s the largest purse in all of women’s golf. For the first time ever, this year’s winner will go home with a $1 million check.

But it’s not the highest payout for a winning female golfer in the sport. The CME Championship is set to hand out $1.5 million to its winner later this year.

Below is the full payout breakdown of the top 65 in the field at the U.S. Women’s Open.
