Chevron Championship Golf Betting Tips

Major season continues with the Chevron Championship, but who are our betting tips for the first major of the women’s golf season?

 

The major season is well and truly underway, but who are betting tips for the first women’s major of the golf season – the Chevron Championship?

Following the conclusion of the Masters on Sunday, where Scottie Scheffler donned the Green Jacket for a second time, we move to the first women’s major of 2024.

The Chevron Championship is the first of the five women’s majors, and following its move last year, the tournament will again be played at The Club at Carlton Woods in Texas.

Is World No 1 Nelly Korda the woman to beat? Can Lilia Vu defend her title? Will we see a brand new major winner?

Who will win? Matt Coles takes a look at some of his favourites for the opening women’s major of the year…

Chevron Championship golf betting tips and preview

Venue: The Club at Carlton Woods, The Woodlands, Texas, United States
Date: April 18-21, 2024
Course stats: Par 72, 7,368 yards
Defending champion: Lilia Vu (-10)

Nelly Korda @ 5/1 with bet365

She is the favourite for a reason. Well, plenty of reasons!

Nelly Korda Chevron Championship golf betting tips

Korda has put together a run that has not been seen on the LPGA Tour in almost two decades – winning her last four starts on the LPGA Tour.

The American won the LPGA Drive On Championship at the end of January, before taking almost two months off. Korda returned with victories at the Fir Hills Seri Pak Championship, Ford Championship presented by KCC and the T-Mobile Match Play by MGM Rewards, all in consecutive weeks.

In the process, she moved back to the summit of the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings. She is by far and away the favourite to win the opening major of the season, sitting at just 5/1.

Lydia Ko @ 28/1 with bet365

She’s one of a number of players who have won this tournament, with Lydia Ko securing the victory when the event was known as the ANA Inspirational back in 2016.

Lydia Ko Chevron Championship golf betting tips

A win, a runners-up finish, a T4 finish and two other top-20 results see Ko sit in the top two of the Race to CME Globe Standings, behind only four-time winner Korda, in the early part of the 2024 LPGA Tour season.

Ko is currently 28/1 to win the Chevron Championship this week, for what would be the New Zealander’s third major title.

Lilia Vu @ 30/1 with bet365

I could not go through this piece without mentioning the defending champion! Lilia Vu had a breakout year in 2023, with the Chevron Championship being one of four victories, and one of two major championship wins.

The American won the opening major of the year on a playoff, beating compatriot Angel Yin to lift her maiden major title. She would then go on to play in the Solheim Cup for the first time in September…

She has not been in a rich vein of form to kick off the 2024 campaign, with just a single top-ten finish in seven LPGA Tour events. However, at 30/1, with Vu coming back to the venue she won her first major, why would you not take a punt on the World No 2?

Charley Hull @ 45/1 with bet365

Charley Hull player profile

Could this finally be the time that Charley Hull breaks down the major door, one that she has knocked on plenty of ties in the past?

The Englishwoman finished runner-up at both the US Women’s Open and the AIG Women’s Open in 2023, and has also come close at the Chevron. She came home T2 at the ANA in the year that Lydia Ko took the victory.

Could Hull become just the third English golfer to win a women’s major this century? She is currently 45/1 to do so this week in Texas.

Andrea Lee @ 100/1 each way with bet365

My outside shot this week is Andrea Lee. The American may not yet have major pedigree, but she has been consistent on the LPGA Tour this season, with three top-tens in seven outings.

Andrea Lee player profile

Only five other women can match Lee with three top-ten finishes on the LPGA Tour so far in the 2024 season. Lee also finished in the top ten at the AIG Women’s Open in 2023, the last major of the year. She is 100/1 to take a maiden major title this week in Texas.

Matt Coles

Matt Coles

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
