The Chevron Championship: The first Major of the season on the LPGA Tour has been given a $2.7 million purse increase

Published: 15 April 2024 Last updated: 22 April 2024

The Chevron Championship is the first Major of the LPGA Tour's season

The Chevron Championship is the first Major of the LPGA Tour's season

The best players in the world are heading to Texas for The Chevron Championship – the opening Major of the season on the LPGA Tour

The Chevron Championship is the first Major played on the LPGA Tour calendar. This is the second year The Chevron Championship will be played in Texas. Previously, The Chevron Championship was played in California, from its inception in 1972 until 2022.

Being the first Major Championship of the season, there is a star-studded field heading to The Woodlands, north of Houston, with high-hopes of finishing the week as either a first-time Major Champion or adding to their collection of Major Championships.

Over the years, The Chevron Championship has been known by several different names. However, one thing that’s always remained is that players are all competing for the Dinah Shore Trophy – named in honor of the television, film, and recording star Dinah Shore.

Dinah Shore presenting Betsy King with the Dinah Shore Trohpy in 1990

Dinah Shore founded the event in 1972 with David Foster, Colgate-Palmolive Chairman. From 1972 until 1982 The Chevron Championship was played as a standard event on the LPGA Tour. In 1983, The Chevron Championship was elevate to Major Championship status, where it has remained ever since.

There’s a tradition for the winner of The Chevron Championship to take a leap into Champions Lake or “Poppie’s Pond” (as it was at Mission Hills Country Club) – hence why the victor is often photographed in a bath robe!

Who’ll be the lucky golfer plunging into the lake this year?

2023 Chevron Championship winner Lilia Vu

Who is playing in The Chevron Championship?

Taking to the field for the first Major Championship of the 2024 LPGA Tour schedule is 132 of the best golfers in the world. As expected, this is the strongest field of the season so far with everyone wanting to get their hands on the Dinah Shore Trophy at the end of the week.

Teeing it up this week looking for her fifth consecutive victory is World No.1, Nelly Korda , and she has to be the main danger. However, there are 44 golfers from the top 50 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings lining up in Texas. The 2023 Chevron Championship, Lilia Vu , will be hoping to defend her crown as the only winner of this event while it’s being hosted in the Lone Star State.

Of the 132 golfers bidding for a Major Championship to be added to their resume, 34 of them are already Major Champions – just over 25% of the field. There are 36 representatives from the USA and European Solheim Cup Teams. Also, there are 40 Olympians in the field for The Chevron Championship including all three medalists – Nelly Korda (gold), Mone Inami (silver), and Lydia Ko (bronze).

Lottie Woad is making her first Major Championship appearance just two weeks on from winning the Augusta National Women’s Amateur

The entire field has recorded 287 LPGA Tour victories, with 71 of the players being responsible for those victories. The Augusta National Women’s Amateur Champion, Lottie Woad of Florida State University is making her first appearance in a Major Championship. Former World No.1 Atthaya Thitikul, is set to compete in her first event of 2024, the Thai star hasn’t been seen since the CME Group Tour Championship in November due to injury.

What is the format of The Chevron Championship?

Despite being a Major Championship, the format of The Chevron Championship doesn’t differ from a standard strokeplay event on the LPGA Tour. It’s a strokeplay event played over 72 holes with a cut after 36 holes (two rounds) that sees the leading 65 players and ties make the final two rounds. The player who achieves the lowest score over four rounds will win the tournament.

Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at The Club at Carlton Woods

Where is The Chevron Championship being played?

The Chevron Championship is being played at The Club at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Texas. This is only the second time The Chevron Championship has been played on this course to the north of Houston. The Chevron Championship had previously been played at Mission Hills Country Club on the Dinah Shore Tournament Course southwest of Palm Springs, California from 1972 – 2022.

The course now reserved for The Chevron Championship is the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Carlton Woods. The 18-hole championship golf course opened in 2001 after being designed personally by the Golden Bear himself.

The Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Carlton Woods measures 6,824 yards for The Chevron Championship and it’s played as a par 72.

Who will win The Chevron Championship?

With this being a Major Championship, every single one of the players teeing it up this week will be hoping to bring their A-game to Texas. This only makes it harder to pick out the winner from the 132 golfers set to start on Thursday.

The favorite among the bookmakers is Nelly Korda, hardly surprising considering she’s won her last four starts. However, what is astounding is how much shorter the 12-time LPGA Tour winner is in the betting than the second favorite, Jin Young Ko. Is this week going to be another Korda demolition?

Selected odds (correct at 12 pm GMT on Apr 13, 2024)

Nelly Korda 11/2

Jin Young Ko 22/1

Atthaya Thitikul 25/1

Sei Young Kim 25/1

Patty Tavatanakit 28/1

Lydia Ko 28/1

Brooke Henderson 28/1

Leona Maguire 30/1

Rose Zhang 30/1

Lilia Vu 30/1

Celine Boutier 35/1

Hyo Joo Kim 35/1

Minjee Lee 35/1

Ruoning Yin 40/1

Charley Hull 45/1

Carlota Ciganda 50/1

Linn Grant 60/1

Jennifer Kupcho 125/1

Nelly Korda is favorite to win The Chevron Championship and make it five wins on the bounce

How much does the winner of The Chevron Championship get?

The purse on offer at The Chevron Championship was set to be the fifth largest on the LPGA Tour’s 2024 schedule – sitting pretty at $5,200,000. However, the purse has received a staggering $2,700,000 increase. The overall tournament prize money now stands at $7,900,000 – the fourth largest purse in the 2024 schedule.

At the 2021 Chevron Championship, the purse stood at $3,100,000, one year later it had risen to $5,000,000. The 2024 Chevron Championship has the largest purse on offer at this event since it began in 1972.

Last year’s winner, Lilia Vu, took home a sizeable share of the $5,100,000 purse, which equated to $765,000 for the 2023 Champion. When the purse was first announced with an increase of $100,000 from last year, the winner was set to receive $780,000. However, with the new purse being $7,900,000 the winner will receive $1,200,000.

While this is a Major Championship on the LPGA Tour, the purse on offer at the RBC Heritage is nearly three times larger. However, there is much more to play for at The Chevron Championship, the winner will be awarded a five-year exemption on the LPGA Tour, 600 Race to the CME Globe points, and a place in the field at all Major Championships this season.

For a while Friday, this tournament looked like it was over. Scottie Scheffler was head and shoulders above the rest of the field after going out in 32, but Xander Schauffele turned it on down the stretch.

During the second round of the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Schauffele posted a 29 on the back nine and played his last three holes 4 under.

He’s now just two back of the world No. 1 entering the weekend.

The biggest mover of the day was Max Homa, who had the second tee time this morning but thanks to an 8-under 62 will tee off with Rory McIlroy Saturday afternoon sitting at 9 under, 10 back.

Birdie surge gives Kim 5-stroke lead at Meijer LPGA Classic

  • Associated Press

Copy Link

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Grace Kim broke away late Saturday afternoon at Blythefield Country Club, birdieing four of the final six holes to take a 5-stroke lead into the final round of the Meijer LPGA Classic.

Tied for the second-round lead with Ally Ewing , Kim shot a 6-under 66 to get to 17-under 199. The 23-year-old Australian won in a playoff last year in Hawaii for her lone LPGA Tour title. She lost a large lead in April in Los Angeles in the JM Eagle LA Championship.

"Giving myself another chance to I guess do it again and actually get it done," Kim said. "I know I'm going to try my best for tomorrow and everyone else will. This golf course calls for lot of birdies and there are a lot of good players out here."

Ewing followed her second-round 63 with a 71 to drop into a tie for second with Lexi Thompson , Anna Nordqvist , Allisen Corpuz and Narin An .

"It was a little bit of a scramble today," Ewing said. "I made some really good putts to just kind of hang in early."

Thompson, the 2015 winner who has said this will be her last year playing a full schedule, played the final six holes on the front nine in 7 under in a 65. She has gone more than five years without winning.

"Just kind of got into a groove," Thompson said. "This is a golf course you know you have to come out and play aggressive and make lots of birdies. Just came out feeling very comfortable, made a few good swings and rolled in some putts."

Nordqvist also shot 65. Corpuz had a 68, and An shot 69.

Kim had three straight birdies on the front nine on Nos. 5-7, dropped a stroke on the par-5 10th, then made the late charge with birdies on the par-3 13th, par-5 14th, par-4 16th and par-5 18th.

"Obviously, I finished pretty strong, so hopefully I can just keep that going," Kim said. "Have a good night meal. Watched a movie yesterday. That's probably helped a little bit as well. Maybe do that again tonight and see. Fresh for tomorrow."

Lilia Vu , a former No. 1 player and double major winner last year, was tied for 14th at 9 under in her return from a back injury that sidelined her since the Ford Championship in late March. She shot 68.

Brooke Henderson , the Canadian who won the event in 2017 and 2019, shot a 73 to drop into a tie for 24th at 7 under. Defending champion Leona Maguire was tied for 57th at 3 under after a 72.

Top-ranked Nelly Korda left Friday after missing her second straight cut following a stretch of six victories in seven events. She won at Blythefield in 2021 at a tournament-record 25 under.

The major KPMG Women's PGA Championship is next week at Sahalee outside Seattle.

Nelly Korda misses 2nd straight LPGA Tour cut after winning 6 of 7 events

Nelly Korda missed her second straight cut after winning six of seven events, rallying Friday but falling a stroke short of advancing to weekend play in the Meijer LPGA Classic

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Nelly Korda missed her second straight cut after winning six of seven events, rallying Friday but falling a stroke short of advancing to weekend play in the Meijer LPGA Classic.

The top-ranked Korda followed an opening 4-over 76 in windy conditions Thursday with a 67 to get to 1 under at Blythefield Country Club, where she won in 2021 at a tournament-record 25 under.

“Didn’t play too bad,” Korda said. “Just tough week.”

Ally Ewing and Grace Kim shared the lead at 11-under 133. Eighty-one players at 2 under or better advanced.

Ewing had a 63. She chipped in for eagle on the par-5 eighth and closed with consecutive birdies.

“That was just pretty steady golf,” Ewing said. “I feel like I’m striking the ball really well ... just up to rolling some putts in.”

Kim shot 65. On her opening nine, the Australian rebounded from a bogey on the par-4 17th with an eagle on the par-5 18th.

“Obviously, struggled with the wind yesterday,” Kim said. “But grinded out a good 4 under and then took my opportunities from a morning tee time today.

Two weeks after making a 10 on a hole in a first-round 80 at the U.S. Women’s Open in Pennsylvania, Korda opened double bogey-bogey-bogey Thursday afternoon in strong wind. She began Friday tied for 133rd — 11 strokes behind first-round leader Alison Lee.

“It was just course management yesterday with the wind,” Korda said. “Just couldn’t play well. Overall, struck the ball well.”

Starting on No. 10 in her morning round, Korda birdied the first three holes and four of the first five. She bogeyed the 17th and added two birdies on her final nine.

“I was just making long putts,” Korda said. “Chipped in on No. 2. Made a long putt on 1. Made a long putt on 3. Three-putted on 8. Completely slid my momentum down.”

She capped a record-tying run of five straight victories with a major win at The Chevron Championship, then tied for seventh in the Founders Cup before winning the Mizuho Americas Open ahead of the U.S. Women’s Open. After the break this week, she’s off to the Seattle area for the major KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Sahalee.

“I’m very pleased with the way that I struck the ball today off the tee — something I’ve been struggling with this year,” Korda said. “This was by far the best I’ve hit it off the tee, so a little bit of positivity going into KPMG.”

Nanna Koerstz Madsen of Denmark and Narin An of South Korea were tied for third at 9 under. Koerstz Madsen had a 64, and An shot 68.

Brooke Henderson, the Canadian who won the event in 2017 and 2019, shot a 69 to top the group at 8 under. She played alongside Korda and defending champion Leona Maguire the first two days.

“It was much softer and not as much wind,” Henderson said. “I wish I could have capitalized a little bit more on a few birdie opportunities. At the same time, happy with 3 under and excited to play the weekend.”

Americans Allisen Corpuz (68) and Lauren Hartlage (69) also were 8 under with China’s Jing Yan (68) and South Korea’s Jin Hee Im (65).

Lee was tied for 10th at 7 under. She followed her opening 65 with a 72, making five birdies and five bogeys.

Maguire was tied for 48th at 3 under after a 69.

Lilia Vu, a former No. 1 player and double major winner last year, was tied for 25th at 5 under in her return from a back injury that sidelined her since the Ford Championship in Arizona at the end of March. She followed an opening 69 with a 70.

Lexi Thompson, the 2015 winner, also was 5 under, shooting a 68. She has gone more than five years without winning. Thompson has said this will be her last year playing a full schedule.

“Hit a lot of great shots out there and made some good birdies, especially coming in.” Thompson said. “So, positives going into weekend.”

Alison Lee of the United States plays her shot from the 17th tee during the first round of the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give at Blythefield Country Club

For the fifth time in her LPGA Tour career, Californian  Alison Lee  holds a first-round lead on the LPGA Tour after an opening round 65 at the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give. Taking advantage of the five par-5s at Blythefield Country Club with a bridie or better on each, Lee carded her best 18-hole score of the 2024 season so far. The LPGA Tour veteran has seen a solid stretch of golf since her three consecutive runner-up results to finish out the 2023 Tour season, but she is still hunting to become a Rolex First-Time Winner as she puts herself in prime position in Belmont, MI. 

Starting on No. 10, Lee wasted no time carding her first of seven birdies on the day. She added another two birdies on Nos. 12 and 14 before recording her first of two bogeys on No. 15. She quickly recovered with back-to-back birdies to get some momentum heading into her back-nine. After she turned in 33 (-3), she added her second bogey on the par-4 3rd, but made up for it going birdie, par, birdie. The highlight of the round came on No. 8 when she eagled the par-5 to give her a two-stroke lead ahead of the nine players behind her at T2.

“I hit a driver off the tee. A really good drive,” Lee said about the eagle. “8-iron for my second shot. I knew I had to land something short of the green because it was pretty strong downwind. Yeah, like I said, it was one of those things you have swings where I knew I just had to swing confidently. On hole 18, I played that first, played the back side first, I had like I think a short club in -- not a short club, but a short club for a par-5 in. I kind of pulled it left into the bunker. Obviously with hole 8, there is a bunker on the left and right. So I just tried to do the best I can to trust my swing and do the move that I wanted to do and swing smooth. I was able to hit it straight. Hit it to inside probably around 15 feet or inside; I hit a really good putt. So, yeah, I mean, really happy with my putting. I think I had 24 putts today or something like that.”

A solid group of players sit just behind Lee at -5. A mix of Solheim Cup veterans like  Jennifer Kupcho , who won this event in 2022,  Carlota Ciganda  and  Lizette Salas  are in the mix, as well as two-time Meijer LPGA Classic champion  Brooke Henderson . Salas and Henderson shot the best round of the afternoon wave with their 67s. The late wave battled wind gusts and dry greens but Henderson broke away from the pack thanks to eagles on Nos. 8 and 18, joining  Isabella Fierro  with two eagles on the card through 18 holes.

“With how windy it was and how firm the greens were, being able to get up and down really saved my round a bunch on the front nine,” Henderson said of her first round. “It was playing extremely tough.  I was happy to kind of grind it out there when I needed to, and when the birdies were available or eagles were available I was able to capitalize, which was really nice.”

Narin An ,  Daniela Darquea ,  Ssu-Chia Cheng  and  Lauren Hartlage  also sit in a tie for second and are all in the hunt to earn their first career victory, along with 2024 LPGA Tour rookie  Benedetta Moresco , who is making just her third start on the LPGA Tour this week.

Defending champion  Leona Maguire , who has not finished worse than second in three starts at this event, is even-par after the conclusion of her first round (T68). Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings No. 1  Nelly Korda  is T133 at 4-over after never quite recovering from going double-bogey—bogey—bogey in her first three holes. Korda won this event in 2021 and has three top-10 finishes at Blythefield Country Club.  Lilia Vu , who is making her first start since the Ford Championship presented by KCC, recorded five birdies and two bogeys, and finished the day T22 at 3-under.
