NAPLES, Florida — In 2020, for the first time in the history of the LPGA Tour, the world’s best female athletes will compete for a combined prize fund of US$75.1 million, which includes the fourth playing of the UL International Crown, and air on more than 500 hours of television, both true signs of the continued growth for the game’s global tour.
The 2020 LPGA Tour schedule will feature 33 official events across 11 countries and regions, with the most hours of television production in LPGA history, and at least seven tournaments that will air on network television.
Additionally, the UL International Crown, a unique biennial team event, will feature a US$1.6 million unofficial purse and showcase the best female golfers from the top eight countries across the globe. 2020 will also see the world’s top players head to Japan for the Summer Olympics, bringing the game into even more households around the world.
