Prize money hits $6.5M at Evian Championship

The Amundi Evian Championship is raising the prize money for the 2022 event to $6.5 million, with the winner taking home $1 million.

It is one of five major tournaments on the LPGA Tour, which has a record purse of more than $90 million this season.

The tournament is scheduled to be played at the Evian Resort Golf Club from July 21-24 in Evian-les-Bains, France. Minjee Lee of Australia is the defending champion and took home $675,000 last year.

It is the latest LPGA major to increase the prize pool.

Earlier this year, the USGA announced the U.S. Women’s Open purse would be $10 million for 2022, more than twice what it was in 2021. That tournament is played June 2-5 at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C.

Players will compete for $6.8 million at the AIG Women’s British Open in August at Muirfield, better than $1 million more than last year.

The winner of the CME Group Tour Championship will earn the largest ever single payday — $2 million — this year.
