Which women's golf tour can you earn the most money on?



We looked at 11 different women's golf tours and broke down the prize money won in 2018. Now, prize money is not the measure of how good a tour is and what it offers to certain players. Other considerations need to be taken into account such as world ranking points, passage to other tours, and experience for young golfers.

However, below shows how much 1st place, 10th and 50th place on the Tour earned in 2018. The amount of tournaments is then divided into the amount won to give an average on won per tournament.

The figures are very interesting and recently at the Taiwan Ladies Open we saw a number of European players head out there to play in the event. This may be a sign of what is to come as players chase better prize money and world ranking points.

What is highlighted is it is clear to see why it s the dream of most golfers to get onto the LPGA Tour.

Some tours did have run away winners that earned a lot more than 2nd place so that needs to be taken into consideration as well, and tours like the LET Access Series pay players lower down the list a lot better than some other tours who offer the high earners more money.

All figures are in British Pounds and used at an exchange rate taken on 23/1/19 and some of the events are co sanctioned with other tours.

However, just to put this into perspective Xander Schhauffele from the USA has already won £2,356,242 in only 4 tournaments this year!
