Angela Stanford wins 2023 Senior LPGA Championship in her first Legends start

Updated: Jul 19, 2023

The final day of play at the 2023 Senior LPGA Championship was a race against the clock with impending weather and darkness trying to spoil the party. After delays early in the morning due to weather, the field took to the course at 1 p.m. ET to try and fit in the final round. When the final putt dropped on 18, the Legends Tour crowned a new champion.

Angela Stanford was five-shots back of the lead when she teed up her ball for the final round of the 2023 Senior LPGA Championship. A bogey-free 65 (-7) would launch Stanford up the leaderboard with a birdie on the last being the winning putt for the championship, but she was unaware of that at the time.

“When I saw the leaderboard coming up 18, I saw Trish was at -13,” said Stanford. “I think at that point I was pretty upset because I felt like I didn’t have a chance, which is probably why that putt went in. I hit it pretty hard because I was pretty upset with myself.”

Stanford will have a quick turnaround after a whirlwind of a week, as she is on her way to play in the 2023 US Women’s Open at Pebble Beach in a week’s time. The Texas native is a regular name at the top of the leaderboards on the LPGA Tour, collecting 100 top-10 finishes and 7 victories in her career. Now, in her first stop on the Legends Tour, she is taking home some hardware and a check for $60,000. Stanford has earned $12,212,462 in her LPGA Tour career.
