Mizuho Americas Open set for May 13-19, 2024 at Liberty National Golf Club

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mizuho Americas, the Americas arm of one of the largest financial institutions in the world and title sponsor on the LPGA Tour, today announced that the Mizuho Americas Open purse will increase to $3 million, up from $2.75 million in 2023. The 2024 event will take place for the second year at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, May 13-19.

The $3 million purse is one of the largest non-Major Championship purses on the LPGA Tour schedule and brings the total purse for the 2024 season to a record $118 million.

As with last year, Mizuho Americas will provide complimentary lodging for all LPGA players in downtown Manhattan – just steps away from a free ferry ride across the Hudson River to Liberty National Golf Club.

“The inaugural Mizuho Americas Open created a new standard of competition with its unique format, world-class golf course, charitable partnership, and extraordinary accommodation of the players,” said Shuji Matsuura, Chairman & CEO, Mizuho Americas. “Increasing the purse is another step in raising the bar, as we look for new ways to further establish this tournament as a marquee event for players and fans.”

The Mizuho Americas Open provides the top female junior golfers the opportunity to compete alongside the LPGA’s top professionals. The inaugural tournament made history with champion Rose Zhang becoming the first non-Tour member to win in their professional LPGA debut since 1951.
