For the first time, the LPGA’s first of five majors will be taking place in Texas instead of at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., where the tournament was played from 1972 until last year. Here our 2023 Chevron Championship betting preview!
It is also being played in late April for the first time instead of the first weekend of the month. The move was made to create some distance with the Augusta National Women’s Amateur.
Last year, Jennifer Kupcho became the third golfer in the past five editions of this event to capture their first LPGA win in the major.
The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Carlton Woods in the Houston area has been in operation since 2001. It’s a par-72 course, but since this is the first time the course will be used by the LPGA, we’re not too sure what to expect.
While Ko was Player of the Year in 2022, she’s gotten off to a (relatively) slow start this year, posting two finishes in the 30s.
Korda bounced back from a blood clot issue last year to win in November and has come in the top six four times in five events this season.
Beat Korda in Singapore and has two other top-six finishes. She hasn’t won a major since this event in 2019, but she’s back with her coach who helped her earn that victory, so this could be her time.
Won twice during her rookie season last year and is also on a run of 10 top-10 finishes in her last 11 starts. After starting slow at majors (17th here last year), Thitikul posted top 10s at the final three majors of 2022. Georgia Hall (+1500) has no finish worse than 14th this year and also has a pair of runner-up finishes to her credit.
Has good value for someone who recorded a win last month and was fourth in this tournament last year. She’s the winningest Frenchwoman in LPGA history, but she is looking to be the first person from France to win a major in 20 years.
Speaking of value, Brooke Henderson is always a threat to win, given that she has won more than once in a season five times. She could make it six with a win here after taking home the title at the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions. In addition, she won the Evian Championship in 2022.
We like Korda and Jin Young Ko of the top favorites, but the value with Boutier, Henderson, and even Thitikul to a certain extent is hard to pass up.
