Like most events on the LPGA Tour, the AIG Open makes a cut after the first two rounds, letting the top 70s and ties advance to the final two rounds. However, only players who completed all 72 holes would be eligible to win the prize money.

The purse money is divided among all the players who last for all 72 holes. Notably, the winner will receive $1,095,000, a standard payout of 15% according to the LPGA Tour prize distribution table. However, the major tournament offers some advantages only for his champion.

Besides the money, she could earn 650 points for the CME Globe race. She will also receive 100 Rolex Women’s World Golf Ranking points, which will help her climb to the top of the world rankings.

Notably, the point can help players enter the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship. Only the top 60 golfers in the world after the Pelican Women’s Championship would have the chance to play in the same. The prize money for the season-ending tournament is $1.5 million.

The 2022 AIG Women’s Open champion will also benefit from a 5-season exemption and places in other major tournaments.
