Quiz: Winners of Women’s Majors Since 2001

There have been more than 100 women’s major championships since the turn of the millennium…

 

There have now been over 100 winners of women’s majors since 2001, but how many them can you correctly guess on our quiz?

2001 saw the start of the third era when it comes to women’s major championships.

The Women’s British Open (now due to sponsorship, the AIG Women’s Open) became a major in the women’s game that year, joining the Kraft Nabisco Championship (now Chevron Championship), LPGA Championship (now Women’s PGA Championship) and US Women’s Open.

12 years after that, the Evian Championship (now Amundi Evian Championship due to sponsorship) became the fifth women’s major, and since then, the five major championships have been played each year.

In 2024, the schedule for the five women’s majors has changed slightly due to the addition of the Olympic Games in Paris to the calendar.

The Chevron Championship remains the first major of the season, with the US Women’s Open, Women’s PGA Championship, Amundi Evian Championship and AIG Women’s Open to follow, the latter coming after the Olympics.

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.
