The world’s best golfers are teeing off as we type and we could not be more hyped about it. Why are we so stoked? Well, because it’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship week, which is a big deal. We’ll break down what makes this tournament the talk of the greens, who to keep your eyes peeled for, and how you can catch every stinkin’ moment!


YBD (Yes, Big Deal): Why the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship is a Big Deal

The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship isn’t just another notch on the LPGA Tour—it’s a major game-changer! Founded in 1955, it’s one of the five prestigious major championships in women's professional golf.

What sets this championship apart? First off, the purse is HEFTY. To the tune of $10,400,000. With prize money rivaling your favorite superstar athlete contracts, these ladies aren’t just playing for bragging rights. Plus, the course selection is top tier, challenging even the most precise drives and best putters in the game.

But it’s not just about the money or the trophies. This event is a showcase of the best of the best, where rising stars can catapult into golf legends, and seasoned pros cement their legacies.


What Makes This Year Different?
2024 is bringing some serious freshness to women’s major championship golf.

  1. The Tech
The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship is more tech-savvy than ever! Since 2021, players have used the KPMG Performance Insights platform for full-field shot data and advanced stats. This year, they’ve upped the ante with Champcast—featuring 3D imagery, radar data, shot trails, green views, and video highlights. This cutting-edge tech doesn’t just make the game more exciting to watch; it boosts engagement and helps players refine their skills. Talk about a very cool, very virtuous cycle.
  1. The Stakes
The purse has ballooned to a jaw-dropping $10.4 million. That’s a lot of green for hitting the greens. And with the world’s best golfers vying for a piece of that pie, you can bet the competition will be fierce.
  1. The Course
KPMG is back and better than ever at Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish, Washington, the stunning course that last hosted this event in 2016. Known for its tight, tree-lined fairways and challenging layout, Sahalee promises a thrilling test for all players, blending natural beauty with strategic demands. The vibes will also be impeccable as Seattle does NOT disappoint when it comes to supporting women’s sports. The fairways may be tight, but the grandstands will be tighter.

Players to Watch
Now, let’s get to the juicy part—who should you be watching out for? Here’s our pick of players who are bound to make headlines:


  1. Nelly Korda
Can you say SLAY? Nelly’s been dominating the field with 6 wins this year (including a record-tying 5 tournament win streak). She’s coming into this championship as no. 1 in the world with scrunchie in her hair and fire in her eyes. “That’s why her scrunchie is so big… it’s full of secrets wins”
  1. Ruoning Yin
Keep an eye on Ruoning Yin, last year’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship winner. Her victory in 2023 showcased her calm under pressure and formidable talent. Returning to defend her title, Yin’s consistency and confidence make her a standout (not to mention world #3 ranking). With her game in top form, she’s a strong contender to watch at Sahalee.
  1. Atthaya Thitikul
This young prodigy from Thailand has been making waves on the tour (youngest to win on the LET until 2023, 2022 LPGA Tour Rookie of the Year, 2 LPGA tour wins and 4 LET wins). She may be ranked T114 right now, but her fearless play and clutch performances make her a dark horse who could very well end up in the winner’s circle.
  1. Lydia Ko
Lydia Ko is just oneeee point away from the LPGA Hall of Fame and returning to Sahalee Country Club, where she narrowly lost a playoff in 2016. With her 2022 Rolex Player of the Year title and current T15 world ranking, Ko’s looking for redemption and victory.
