Ladies European Tour - Tournaments

Tournaments

There are 25 events that count towards the 2010 Order of Merit, up from 23 in 2009, but down from its peak of 28 in 2008. The two richest events by far are the Evian Masters and the Women's British Open, which are co-sanctioned by the LPGA Tour and have prize funds of roughly €2.2 million and €1.7 million (fixed at US$3.25 million and 2.5 million) respectively. The other events consist of three with prize funds of approximately €500,000; seventeen with prize funds of between €200,000 and €400,000; and three whose prize funds had not yet been officially announced by the LET at the start of the season. The three half million euro events are in Switzerland, Ireland and Dubai. Total prize money in 2010 Order of Merit events is expected to approach €11 million.

Unlike in men's golf, the European and American tours do not share a common set of majors, although the Women's British Open is recognised as a major by both organisations. The only other event on the Ladies European Tour with "major" status is the Evian Masters, which is played in France. The Evian Masters is not recognised as a major by the LPGA, but the LPGA co-sanctions the event as part of its regular schedule. The significance of this is limited as the LPGA Tour is so dominant in global women's golf that "women's majors" usually refers to the LPGA majors, even in Europe.
