Chevron Championship Odds & Final Field

Chevron Championship, First LPGA Major of 2022, Is Playing Mission Hills for the Final Time

One of women’s golf’s best traditions is the winner of the first LPGA major of the year jumping into the pond known as Champions Lake off the 18th green at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California for the Chevron Championship

Amy Alcott established the tradition in 1988 in what was then known as the Nabisco Championship, then the ANA Inspiration, and now the Chevron Championship.

Due to the new sponsorship, the event is being moved starting in 2023 to the Houston, Texas area, so this will be the final pond jump at Mission Hills for the 2022 winner.

The Course

The tournament is a four-round event on the par-72, 6,763-yard course. Patty Tavatanakit is the defending champion with an 18-under 270 last year, one shot off Dottie Pepper’s record set in 1999. Alcott, Betsy King, and Annika Sorenstam hold the record with three wins in this event.

The Ko Duo Is Favored

Jin Young Ko +500

The top women’s golfer in the world, is the big favorite this weekend at +500, especially with world’s No. 2 Nelly Korda withdrawing from the competition due to a blood clot in her arm. Starting with a win at the Volunteers of American Classic in July, Ko has finished in the top 10 in 10 of her last 11 starts.

Lydia Ko +1100

She’s had to work through some adjustments to her game over the past couple of years, but the New Zealand native has a win this season, won here in 2016, and is coming off a runner-up finish in this event in 2021.

Other Contenders

Lexi Thompson +1600

Has a win here in 2014 and has come in the top 10 in six of her last eight tries at this event, but she hasn’t won since 2019.

Danielle Kang +1800

Has a major victory at the Women’s PGA Championship in 2017 among her six career wins, including a victory and a runner-up finish so far this year.

Patty Tavatanakit +1900

Is the defending champion, winning just three years after earning low amateur honors here in 2018. She followed up that win with a fifth in the Women’s PGA Championship and a seventh at the AIG Women’s Open, so she’s been spectacular in majors going into this one.

Longshots

Anna Nordqvist +6000

Is 15th in the women’s rankings and won a major last year at the AIG Women’s Open. She’s won nine times on the tour and has been under par in eight of her last 11 rounds, so she’s in fine form going into this one.

A Lim Kim +5250

Missed the cut last year but did win the 2020 U.S. Women’s Open, so the Korean Tour veteran has a history of performing well at big events in the U.S.

Jin Young Ko doesn’t provide as much value as Lydia Ko and Danielle Kang, and the latter two are on a great run since the start of 2022, so they are our picks for this event, and Tavatanakit also has good value given her performance in majors last year.
