How big a victory was the AIG Women’s British Open for Germany’s Sophia Popov? Well consider this: Prior to the win at Royal Troon, Popov, 27, had earned a mere $108,051 on the LPGA Tour in 33 pro starts. Her performance this week in Scotland however, earned his $675,000, or more than five times her career earnings.

Yes, it's safe to call the triumph a life-altering event.

Popov didn’t have official LPGA membership entering the week, but the victory secured that through the 2021 season. She also becomes the first player from Germany to win a women’s major championship and just the third German player to win a major, joining Martin Kaymer and Bernhard Langer.

“It feels amazing," Popov said. “There's a lot of hard work behind it, and a lot of struggles that I went through the last six years, especially health-wise, and I'm just glad I was able to overcome everything and just keep my head in it. I knew I was capable. I just had a lot of obstacles thrown in my way, and I just, I'm glad I stuck with it. I almost quit playing last year, so thank God I didn't.”

The overall prize money payout from the R&A was $4.5 million. Here’s how much each golfer who made the cut earned for their efforts in the year’s first women’s major.
