The LPGA Tour has unveiled its 2023 season schedule, and it is nothing like ever seen before. In marking the highest total in the history of the tour, the purse this year will be of a whopping $101 million.

There will be 33 official events added with the biennial fixtures of the Solheim Cup and the Hanwha LIFEPLUS International crown. LPGA Commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan spoke about this big, breakaway moment in the organization's history.

She said:

"Because of our athletes, partners, volunteers and incredible fans, 2023 will be a banner year for the LPGA Tour. The schedule features new events, elevated purses, unique formats and world-class golf courses. Our athletes are playing for more total prize money than any time in history, and we have over 500 hours of broadcast television. All those things combine to make the LPGA the leading women’s professional sports property in the world."

Samaan also announced how much these positive changes would inspire young girls.

"The LPGA Tour has never had better or more committed partners who see the commercial value in investing in women’s sports and who understand how their partnerships elevate women and girls on and off the golf course. As the home to the world’s best female golfers, the LPGA provides a platform to inspire young girls and women to dream big."

Two thrilling team tournaments will also be held during the 2023 season. For the first time since 2018, the Hanwha LIFEPLUS International Crown, a team match-play event featuring the top female golfers from the world's top eight nations, will take place at San Francisco's renowned TPC Harding Park from May 4 to 7. The Solheim Cup will also be hosted in Finca Cortesin in Spain from September 22 to 24, pitting the top 12 American players against the top 12 European players.

The US Women's Open will bring the top female golfers to Pebble Beach for the first time. There the players will compete for a whopping $10 million.

Indeed, this breakthrough decision of the 2023 schedule of an increased purse is a massive moment in women's golf.

The 2023 schedule will begin and end in Florida. The first event will take place in the last week of January, and the tour will complete the circle by returning to Florida for the CME Group Tour Championship in November. The latter will mark the end of the 2023 season.

The tour will be trotting the globe as it will travel from Europe to the United States to Canada to Asia this season. In total, it will traverse 11 states in the United States and 12 countries and regions.

In an extraordinary news, legendary golfer Annika Sorenstam will be welcomed as the organizing host for THE ANNIKA driven by Gainbridge at Pelican. The event will feature a $3.25 million purse.
