“The Aon Risk Reward Challenge is an authentic fit for our sport that will resonate with players and fans while providing Aon an intuitive way to reinforce how their firm creates value for its clients.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Aon to the LPGA family of partners,” added LPGA Commissioner, Mike Whan. “The Aon Risk Reward Challenge will bring an exciting new season-long competition to our Tour with a very significant $1 million (£751, 895) prize for our winner. The fact that Aon is providing equal prize money for the men (PGA Tour) and women (LPGA) has made a huge statement to our players, and we couldn’t be more appreciative.”
