LPGA Golf Prize Money Up for Grabs at the 2018 U.S. Women's Open

The 2018 U.S. Women's Open golf major tournament for women golfers on the LPGA Tour is taking place this week from May 31 to June 3, 2018, at the Shoal Creek Golf and Country Club located in Shoal Creek, Alabama. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs for the LPGA women golfers this week at the 2018 U.S. Women's Open.



The U.S. Women's Open dates back to 1946. It one of the five majors for women golfers on the LPGA Tour in 2018. Fan favorites like Cristie Kerr (2007), Paula Creamer (2010) and Michelle Wie (2014) have won this golf major in recent times.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2018 U.S. Women's Open is $5 million. This is the largest prize money purse up for grabs for the LPGA women golfers for the 2018 season. 

The $5 million in prize money is the same amount that was up for grabs last year at the U.S. Women's Open. The winner's share below is the largest amount of money a woman golfer can win for one tournament in 2018. All women who miss the cut will receive $4,000.

It's possible the USGA will raise the prize money after the tournament has begun. If that's the case the prize money below will be raised to reflect any increase.
