Not only did Yuka Saso become a two-time US Women’s Open champion on Sunday, but she scooped the game’s richest prize. 

Up $1 million from 12 months ago, the prize purse for the second major in the women’s calendar was a healthy $12 million – over double the total just three years ago. 

And with the USGA committing to a new 20% winner’s share, Saso walked away from Lancaster Country Club with $2.4 million. 

It was an effort worthy of the prize, too, as the Japanese star – who signed for a final round 68 – was one of only two players to finish the tournament under par. 

The 22-year-old backed up her triumph in 2021 with a three-shot win over compatriot Hinako Shibuno. 

Meanwhile, even those who didn’t make the cut in Pennsylvania, like world No.1 Nelly Korda, received $10,000.  

Here’s the full prize money payout from the 2024 US Women’s Open…
