On the LPGA tour the courses usually play about 6300 or 6400 yards

There is a large gap between the winnings of an PGA Tour player and an LPGA Tour player. The average winners cheque on the PGA Tour is around 3 times as much as one on the LPGA Tour.

There is also a large gap between the money paid for sponsorship deals with male golfer typically earning far more as they are more desirable for most brands. The LPGA Tour is still struggling for sponsorship of events, that's why the purses are smaller. A lot of events were lost last year with just about an event every 2 weeks, whereas the PGA Tour held an event every week.
