Here's the prize money payout for each golfer at the 2022 AIG Women's British Open

Never did it matter if, only how much. The R&A was ready to follow suit for this week’s AIG Women’s British Open after the organisations that oversee the other four women’s major championships each upped the prize money awards for their competitions to record levels in 2022. And on Wednesday, chief executive Martin Slumbers reported that the total had increased from the previously disclosed $6.8 million to $7.3 million.

For the first time ever, the champion—South African Ashleigh Buhai, who defeated In Gee Chun in a four-hole playoff—is being awarded seven figures in prize money. The winner of the Muirfield race on Sunday will take home a check for $1.095 million.

Slumbers highlighted that the increase represented a 26 percent rise over the $5.8 million total budget from the previous year. Additionally, it is 125 percent higher than the championship’s previous winnings, which were $3.25 million at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, four years ago.

In contrast, this year’s Chevron Championship saw an increase in overall prize money from $3 million to $5 million, with winner Jennifer Kupcho taking home a record $750,000. The USGA added ProMedica as a presenting sponsor to the U.S. Women’s Open, increasing the prize money from $4.5 million to $10 million, with victor Minjee Lee collecting $1.8 million. Following suit, the prize pool for the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship increased from $4.5 million to $9 million, with In Gee Chun earning $1.35 million. The Amundi Evian Championship followed suit, with Brooke Henderson earning $1 million for winning and the overall reward increasing from $4.5 million to $6.5 million.
