2018 KPMG Women's PGA Championship Golf Prize Money Up for Grabs

The 2018 KPMG Women's PGA Championship golf major for women golfers on the LPGA Tour is taking place this week from June 28 to July 1, 2018, at the Kemper Lakes Golf Club located in the Chicago suburb of Long Grove, Illinois. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs for the LPGA women golfers this week at the 2018 KPMG Women's PGA Championship.



The KPMG Women's PGA Championship dates back to 1955. It one of the five majors for women golfers on the LPGA Tour in 2018.

Mickey Wright holds the record for most wins in this major with four. Six women have won this golf major three times each including Inbee Park who won three in a row from 2013-15. Canadian Brooke Henderson, who was just 18 years old at the time, won this major in 2016. Brooke Henderson is the brightest young star on the LPGA Tour in 2018.

Danielle Kang is the defending champion as she won this event last year in 2017.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2018 KPMG Women's PGA Championship is $3.65 million. That's up 4.3% from the $3.5 million of prize money that was up for grabs in this event last year.

As with most LPGA Tournaments the first place prize money in the 2018 KPMG Women's PGA Championship is set in stone at 15% of the total prize money. The rest of the prize money below the top spot can vary a little bit from what is shown based upon how many women make the cut. The more women who make the cut due to ties beyond 70 the less money each spot below the top spot will pay. The prize money below is based upon just 70 women making the cut.
