Californian Lilia Vu won the fifth and final major after claiming a six shot victory at the AIG Women's Open in Walton Heath, Surrey, yesterday, August 13.
Vu won the initial major of the year in April at the Chevron Championship in Carlton Woods, Texas. Vu defeated Fellow Californian Angel Yin in a nervy playoff in that event as both players finished at -10.
England's Charley Hull, achieved second place at the Women's open in Walton Heath, in her successive major appearance. The 27-year-old Hull proved this year she can compete on the biggest stage.
Cavan golfer, Leona Maguire, will be disappointed with her joint 31st place finish with a score of +7. However, Maguire has had a good 2023 to date, and currently sits 13th in the Rolex world rankings.
Twenty five-year-old Vu’s first win on the LPGA tour came at the start of this season at the Honda LPGA in Thailand this February. Vu and Hull, should compete against one another again in Finca Cortesin, Costa del Sol, this September, when Team Europe takes on Team USA in the 18th Solheim Cup.
Ireland's Leona Maguire was the Top scorer in Europe's 2021 victory of the Solheim Cup, scoring 4.5 points. Europe sits on a hatrick, winning the last two editions of the biannual event.
World number one, American Nelly Korda, and Sweden's Linn Grant, have both showcased their talent in mixed gendered events in the past number of years. The five majors of 2023 have also had record viewers and have had four different winners. Therefore, this year’s edition of the Solheim Cup could be the biggest to date.
