Daytona Beach, Florida - The Epson Tour, the official qualifying tour for the LPGA, is set for a remarkable 2024 season with a record-breaking $5 million in total prize money, the largest in its 44-year history. The average purse per event sees a $20,000 increase. In a significant change, the Race for the Card will shift from a Money-based to a Points-based ranking system, aligning with the LPGA Tour's structure. The 20-tournament schedule spans 12 states, offering increased purses and introducing two new tournaments. The season kicks off on March 8-10 in Winter Haven, Florida, at the Florida’s Natural Charity Classic, followed by 19 events concluding in October at a new location, Indian Wells, California, with continued support from partner Epson.
