NAPLES, Fla. — It's a familiar refrain around this time of year on the LPGA Tour— a schedule announcement with another record purse. This time, the LPGA announced Thursday morning the $116.5 million total purse in 2024, a $15.2 million raise from $101.3 million this season. The schedule includes the Solheim Cup, contested for back-to-back years for the first time since 2002-03, and the Olympics in Paris.

"The 2024 LPGA Tour schedule reflects our historic growth," LPGA commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan said in a statement. "With new events and improved geographic flow, enhancing the athlete experience, our global reach and competitiveness have never been stronger.”

The season begins Jan. 18 at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions and ends just more than 11 months later on Nov. 24 at the CME Group Tour Championship. The LPGA will have 10 non-major events with a purse of more than $3 million, up from four this year. Four events increased their purse to the $3 million threshold from this season to next—Mizuho Americas Open ($2.75M to $3M), Meijer LPGA Classic ($2.5M to $3M), Walmart NW Arkansas Championship ($2.3M to $3M) and the largest increase, the Lotte Championship, going up by $1 million ($2M to $3M).

While the five majors this year were defined by visits to new courses, with the Chevron moving to The Club at Carlton Woods and the U.S. Women's Open is being contested at Pebble Beach for the first time, all five in 2024 will return to familiar venues. The Amundi Evian Championship and the Chevron will both be at the same courses as last year; the U.S Women's Open returns to Lancaster (Pa.) Country Club, where it was held in 2015; the KPMG Women's PGA Championship goes back to Sahalee Country Club outside Seattle, which hosted the major in 2016; and the AIG Women's Open heads to the Old Course at St. Andrews, the third time the LPGA has played at the famed venue and first since 2013.

The largest purse of the season is $11 million, shared by the U.S. Women's Open and the CME Group Tour Championship, which this week bumped up its purse by $4 million for 2024. While growth has happened in non-major events, the LPGA's purse remains highly concentrated in its majors and Tour Championship. In 2024, 45.2 percent of its total season purse will be from just those six events, down from 47 percent this year.
