The stakes are high at this week’s U.S. Women’s Open. But how high, exactly?

Seven figure-high, for starters. Contestants at the Olympic Club in San Francisco this week are playing for a $1,000,000 first prize. That makes the USWO the biggest first-place check of any of the five women’s majors.

One other LPGA event, the CME Group Tour Championship, also offers a million-dollar payday.

In total, the U.S. Women’s Open is offering a $5.5 million purse. Sixty-six players made the cut, including four amateurs.

Below you can find the prize money payout for each pro who made the weekend. The money that each amateur would have won has been redistributed across the rest of the field.

Each pro who made the field but missed the cut received $4,000 in unofficial prize money.
