Catriona Matthew, who led Europe for the Solheim Cup victory in 2019, says players & # 39; proud & # 39; must be on the new tour schedule.

Players on the 2020 Ladies European Tour (LET) play for a record amount of £ 15.2 million in total prize money, an increase of £ 3.9 million from 2019.

There will be 24 LET events four more than last year and nine more than in 2018.

The UK is organizing one of the new events and offers £ 835,000 in prize money, the location of which is yet to be announced.

"I could not be more excited about what has been achieved to improve the schedule," said Europe & # 39; s captain Solheim Cup Catriona Matthew.

"This is a tour that existing players and players who are participating for the first time can be proud of."

The updated schedule was drawn up as a result of a joint venture between the LET and the LPGA, which was established to increase the playing opportunities for female golfers in Europe.

The 2020 season starts on February 20 at the Australian Ladies Classic in New South Wales and ends with the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open in November.

The new Costa del Sol race, replacing the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit, offers an additional £ 210,000 to the top three finishers in the order of merit, with the number one player £ 107,000 from that pot receive.

Among the new additions will be Sweden, which organizes two tournaments, while the LET returns to Switzerland when the Swiss Ladies Open comes to Golfpark Holzhausern in September.
