2024 LPGA Senior Championship Featured Groups



FEATURED GROUPS

GROUP ONE | 9:50 A.M. MT

Juli Inkster

• Inkster is a 31-time LPGA Tour winner, seven of which were major championships. She has also been on nine United States Solheim Cup teams between 1992 and 2011, captaining the U.S. Team in 2015, 2017 and 2019. The 63-year-old has a long list of achievements and awards, including a World Golf Hall of Fame induction (2000), a Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year Award (1984) and an ESPY Award for Best Female Golfer (2000). Inkster has six wins on the Legends Tour so far, but she has yet to win the LPGA Senior Championship, making her a name to watch at Copper Rock Golf Course.

Laura Davies

• Davies, along with Inkster, is a well-known name on the women's side of the game. The 60-year-old was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2015 after earning 20 LPGA Tour victories and 45 Ladies European Tour victories. The 12-time Solheim Cup participant is the only player to participate in the first 12 matches from 1990 to 2011, and she has continued her involvement as a non-playing assistant captain for Team Europe in 2019, 2021 and 2023.

Wendy Ward

• Joining the two World Golf Hall of Famers is four-time LPGA Tour winner Wendy Ward. Ward was also a three-time Solheim Cup participant (2002, 2003, 2005) and an assistant captain for her groupmate Inkster in 2015. The 51-year-old has teed it up in six majors and is using the LPGA Senior Championship as a warm-up for her first major start since 2010, as Ward will play in the 2024 KPMG Women's PGA Championship at the end of June at Sahalee Country Club.


GROUP TWO | 10:00 AM MT

Angela Stanford

• Stanford returns to the 2024 LPGA Senior Championship in hopes of defending her title. The 46-year-old carded a 7-under 65 in the final round of the 2023 tournament to defeat two-time LPGA Senior Championship winner Trish Johnson. Outside of the Legends Tour, Stanford has won seven titles on the LPGA Tour, including one major, the 2018 Amundi Evian Championship. She has also been a member of six U.S. Solheim Cup teams (2003, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015) and served as an assistant captain in 2021 and 2023, doing so again this year at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

Trish Johnson

• Johnson has unfinished business at the LPGA Senior Championship, finishing second at the 2023 playing, just one shot shy of Stanford, who robbed Johnson of her third LPGA Senior Championship title. The 58-year-old has 29 professional wins, three of which came from the LPGA Tour and six from the Legends Tour. Johnson won the U.S. Senior Women's Open in 2023 and will be a contender to keep an eye on this week at Copper Rock Golf Course as she works to collect a third LPGA Senior Championship title.

Sherri Steinhauer

• Rounding out the featured groups is eight-time LPGA Tour winner and two-time major champion Sherri Steinhauer. The 61-year-old also has two victories on the Legends Tour, with her last coming at the 2013 Wendy's Charity Challenge. She has been a member of four U.S. Solheim Cup teams, participating in the biennial team event in 1994, 1998, 2000 and 2007. A fierce competitor paired with two big-name players, Steinhauer has a good chance at coming out on top in Utah and is another name to keep an eye on at the LPGA Senior Championship.
