Chevron Championship: Round one tee times

World No 1 Nelly Korda and defending champion Lilia Vu have been grouped together for the first two rounds of the first women’s major of 2024, the Chevron Championship, which is live on Sky Sports from 3pm on Thursday.

Korda is chasing fifth-straight win to continue her remarkable 2024, while Vu – second only to Korda in the world rankings – is hoping to add to the two major titles she secured last year. Another two-time major winner, Minjee Lee, completes a rather formidable grouping, with the Australian currently ranked fifth in the world.

In terms of English interest, Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Georgia Hall – a former major winner at the 2018 Women’s British Open – have been grouped together, while 20-year-old amateur Lottie Woad, winner of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur earlier this month, is in a group with Madelene Sagstrom of Sweden.

Northern Ireland’s Stephanie Meadow is in the opening groupings on day one; Ireland’s Leona Maguire is grouped with Grace Kim and Swedish three-time major winner Anna Nordqvist; Scotland’s Gemma Dryburgh tees off with Spain’s Carlota Ciganda and Shinsil Bang of South Korea.
