The 2021 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship is one of five Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) majors. It was built on the history and tradition of the LPGA Championship that started in 1955, making it the second oldest women’s championship in golf.

Since partnering with both the LPGA and KPMG around six years ago, the program has seen six different women hoist the championship trophy. Each winner is currently in the top 20 of the Women’s World Golf Rankings. In addition, the 2021 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship currently offers one of the largest purses in women’s golf at $4.3 million, including $645,000 going to the champion.

“It’s really neat to be able to see all of our champions not only be fantastic golfers but to stay in that top 20 in the world,” said Clifton. “We really have some great history and prestige around this championship.”
