Mizuho Americas, the Americas arm of one of the largest financial institutions in the world, and new title sponsor on the LPGA Tour, is hosting the inaugural Mizuho Americas Open, from May 31 to June 4 at the iconic Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City.
The Mizuho Americas Open will mark the first time Liberty National Golf Club welcomes the LPGA Tour, after hosting several world-class events, including the Presidents Cup and multiple PGA TOUR playoff stops. The tournament will see the best golfers in the world compete for a $2.75 million purse, one of the largest non-Major Championship purses on the LPGA Tour calendar for the 2023 season, against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty.
This tournament is being launched at a time of record-setting global growth for the LPGA. One of the world’s oldest professional women’s sports organizations, 2023 sees the tour’s 33 tournaments offering a record-high $101.4 million in prize money to athletes representing more than 35 countries. LPGA Tour icon Michelle Wie West will serve as tournament host and Mizuho brand ambassador.
In addition, the Mizuho Americas Open will concurrently host an AJGA Invitational, which will provide the opportunity for 24 female junior golfers on the American Junior Golf Association Tour to compete alongside the 120-player LPGA Tour field for their own individual title. This unique format marks the first time that the AJGA and the LPGA have partnered to showcase the stars of today competing inside-the-ropes with the future of the game, creating an unprecedented week of education and access to inspire the next generation of LPGA Tour players.
