Winners of the Women’s PGA Championship

Who has lifted the Women’s PGA Championship Trophy? Find out here…

 

The Women’s PGA Championship began back in 1955, and has been played every year since, but which players have been lucky enough to win the title?

The inaugural tournament was a stroke play and match play event, with the event turning into a four-day stroke play competition from 1956 onwards.

From 2016, the event has been run by the PGA of America, bringing the tournament in line with the men’s version of the event, much like the United States Women’s Open and Men’s Open.

The very best from the LPGA Tour and the Ladies European Tour do battle to lift the trophy every year. 14 women are multiple-time tournament winners at the Women’s PGA Championship. Two women have won – Annika Sorenstam and Inbee Park – have won the event in three successive years.

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.
