Women's English Masters raising prize fund in most unique way

The Women's English Masters, a tournament on the LET Access Series, appears to be raising its prize fund through the use of social media this week.

The tournament, which is set for Sept. 1-3, 2023 at Hurlston Hall Golf Club in Scarisbrick, will be the 13th event in a 17-event LET Access season for 2023. The tour is the official development tour for the Ladies European Tour and was launched back in 2010.

The top six players on the LET Access Order of Merit at the end of the 2023 season will earn Ladies European Tour membership for the following season. 

The Women's English Masters has the second-highest prize fund already on the 2023 LET Access schedule at €65,000. Justin and Kate Rose's tournament, the Rose Ladies Open, holds the highest current fund at €70,000 and is scheduled for the following week in September. 

However, the Women's English Masters prize fund could change before play gets underway in a few months. On Instagram Tuesday, the Women's English Masters account was re-posting similar posts by multiple professionals to their story regarding the prize fund of the tournament.

The posts by the professionals, like Amy Boulden, all came from the same template but had each golfer's own photo on it. The graphic read:

"1 like [equals] £1 added to your prize fund."

The caption on Boulden's post further explained that same notion: that one like on the post counted for £1 towards the prize fund of the tournament.
