We’re proud to be the title sponsor of one of golf’s major championships.
Leveling the playing field for women’s golf
As one of golf’s major championships, the AIG Women’s Open combines tradition, exceptional golf and a diverse global audience—that reflects AIG’s stakeholders around the world.
In 2019, AIG became the title sponsor of the Women’s British Open, AIG’s first title sponsorship in professional golf. First played in 1976, the championship has grown to become the one of the most international championships in women’s golf. In July 2020, AIG announced the rebranding of the iconic championship to the AIG Women’s Open, reflecting its growing stature and broadening international appeal.
AIG in conjunction with The R&A has allowed us to meaningfully expand this iconic championship in many ways, from its global reach, to more than doubling the prize money since we became the title sponsor in 2019, to our steadfast commitment throughout the pandemic to ensure a safe and successful championship.
We are proud to stand as allies to women in golf, business and society more broadly.

An ally is with you every step of the way. As the proud title sponsor of the AIG Women’s Open, we know the meaning of true allyship. It’s why we sponsor world-class athletes like Georgia Hall and continue to show our commitment to gender equity and inclusion.
Allyship is Playing the Long Game
