The Chevron Championship, which will be held at The Club Carleton Woods (par 72, 6824 yards) in Woodlands, Texas, for four days from the 20th (Korean time), is the first of the five major women’s golf tournaments to be held.

The Chevron Championship was held until 2021 under the name ANA Inspiration. As the title sponsor changed last year, the name of the tournament was also changed, and this year, even the time and location of the event were changed. Until the last tournament, which was held at Mission Hills Country Club in California, USA, the ceremony where the winner jumped into the pond on the course with his caddy after the tournament was famous.
As this is the first major tournament of this season, the top 20 players in the world will be all out. First, the strong winners Lydia Ko, Nellie Koda, and Ko Jin-young, who are ranked 1st to 3rd in the world, all come out. Lydia Ko, who will play her first major tournament after her marriage last December, aims to win this tournament for the first time in 7 years since 2016.
Ko Jin-young, who was unable to show off his skills due to a wrist injury in the second half of last year, but secured a foothold for a rebound by winning the HSBC World Championship on the LPGA Tour in March, is also aiming for the championship. If Koh Jin-young wins this event, it will be his third major event victory along with 15 wins on the LPGA Tour. Previously, Ko Jin-young won this competition and the Evian Championship in 2019.
Jeon Ji-do, who is called a ‘major tournament hunter’, is aiming for the trophy. Jeon In-ji, who won 3 out of 4 wins on the LPGA Tour in the majors, will achieve the “Career Grand Slam” if she wins this event as well. Inji Jeon won the 2015 US Open, 2016 Evian Championship, and last year’s KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. She becomes a career grand slammer because she adds to this tournament or the AIG Women’s Open title. Inbi Park is the only Korean player to have achieved the Career Grand Slam.
In addition, the Korean women’s golf corps, including Kim Hyo-joo, Ryu So-yeon, Kim A-rim, Lee Jeong-eun, Kim Se-young, Park Seong-hyun, Ji Eun-hee, Choi Hye-jin, Anna Lin, Choi Woon-jung, Yang Hee-young, Shin Ji-eun, Yoo Hae-ran, and Lee Mi-hyang, are also ready to participate.
