6 Players to Watch at The Chevron Championship

By: | Mon 28 Mar 2022 | Comments

Mission Hills makes its final appearance as a major venue on the LPGA Tour at the Chevron Championship, bringing to a close an iconic story that has spanned 50 years.

This represents one final chance for someone to leap into Poppie's Pond at the Dinah Shore Tournament Course and etch their name alongside many of the legends of the game. 

We pick out just six contenders who we believe will have a strong week in California.

Hannah Green

The Australian won the 2019 Women's PGA Championship and has already tasted success twice on home soil this year. Now back in America and seeking a third victory on the LPGA, Green is an appealing relative outside bet and someone whose career continues to show further promise.

Lydia Ko

It's six years since the New Zealander won at Mission Hills - and consider that she is still just 24. It was 12 months ago that her masterful touch was restored in a runner-up finish behind the sensational Patty Tavatanakit, and it's long overdue for Ko to claim her third major title.

Leona Maguire

The rising Irish star enjoyed a stunning Solheim Cup debut last year and carried that form into her own schedule, winning the LPGA Drive On Championship in February. Capable of scoring low and with an understated but fearless attitude, the major stage won't dissuade the 27-year-old.

Nanna Koerstz Madsen

Another impressive European, Koerstz Madsen became the first Dane to win on the LPGA Tour earlier in March, and was denied a second-straight title last weekend in a playoff by Atthaya Thitikul. Koerstz Madsen also boasts course form having finished in a tie for third at last year's event, behind Tavatanakit and Lydia Ko.

The 26-year-old has a fabulous record at Mission Hills, never missing the cut in eight appearances, with seven top 25 finishes, including three top tens. Her aggressive style seems to match up with this layout, so its imminent loss from the schedule will prove disappointing. Therefore, what better way to sign off than by clinching a maiden major title.

Brooke Henderson

Losing a playoff here in 2020, this brilliant Canadian is hoping to claim a second major, and the early season numbers look promising. She is third on the money list and fourth in terms of overall Strokes Gained. The 24-year-old's game is in a healthy state and that is potentially bad news for the rest of the leading lights at the Dinah Shore.
