Lilia Vu wins 2023 Chevron Championship

Lilia Vu of Fountain Valley, California is a major champion for the first time. On Sunday, she posted a 72 hole score of -10 at the 2023 Chevron Championship in the Woodlands, Texas. Vu then faced fellow American Angel Yin of Los Angeles, California, and won in a playoff.

On the first and only playoff hole, Vu had a score of birdie, while Yin had a par putt. Yin got off to significant trouble as one of her shots in the playoff landed in the water. This gave Vu all of the momentum, and won the Chevron Championship with an impressive 15-foot putt that went into the hole.

Over the weekend, Vu posted scores of four-under-par in rounds one and four, three-under-par in round two, and one-over-par in round three. In the first round on Thursday on the eighth hole, Vu had an eagle. This was Vu’s second LPGA title. She in fact had a win earlier this year, as on February 26, won the 2023 Honda LPGA Thailand event. Vu posted a score of -22 and beat Thailand’s Nattahakritta Vongtaveelap by a stroke.
