The LPGA Tour and FM Global announced last Friday that TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., will host the 2024 FM Global Championship. From Aug. 29 to Sept. 1, the newly created tournament will feature a field of 144 players competing for a $3.5 million purse, the largest prize fund on the LPGA Tour outside of the majors and tour championship.
The 2024 competition kicks off a five-year partnership between the two organizations, with the tournament likely to move throughout the New England region. The 2024 FM Global Championship marks the LPGA Tour’s return to New England for the first time since the 2004 U.S. Women’s Open, held at Orchards Golf Club in South Hadley, Mass., and won by Meg Mallon. The last time the Tour competed in the greater Boston area was 1997, when Liselotte Neumann won the Welch’s Championship at Blue Hill Country Club in Canton. Other notable women’s golf events held in Massachusetts include the 1954 and 1984 U.S. Women’s Opens at Salem Country Club in Peabody, the 1967-1968 and 1970-1974 KPMG Women’s PGA Championships at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, and the 1960 U.S. Women’s Open at Worcester Country Club in Worcester.
Tickets and volunteer opportunities for the 2024 FM Global Championship will be available in the coming months. Click here to be notified about FM Global Championship updates.
The FM Global Championship kicked off with an exciting event announcement at Fenway Park. Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey, Rhode Island Governor Daniel McKee and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu joined LPGA Commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan and FM Global President/CEO Malcolm Roberts in celebrating the historic occasion. LPGA Tour player and Massachusetts native Brittany Altomare even had the opportunity to hit a few balls from home plate at Fenway, a dream-come-true for any Boston sports fan.
As Brittany said at Fenway, there’s no better experience in sports than attending an LPGA Tour event. The fan interactions, the partner potential and the client engagement opportunities are second to none. Mass Golf members and all New England sports fans will have a front-row seat to all the excitement starting in 2024.
