Weekend Winner: Lilia Vu is a major champion

What a great result for Lilia Vu. She is a great example of perseverance and never giving up. After losing her card in her first year as a LPGA pro she came back really strongly this year and continued her impressive streak by capturing her first major title.

I’ve watched a fair bit of the LPGA this year so far. I try to see as much as I can but timezones can be challenging. To this end I didn’t see the climax of this event live but was fascinated by her performance in this event.

The podcasts that I regularly listen to, when talking about the women’s game, are very positive about her. Prior to the Chevron Championship she has had 1 win and never finished out of the top 14. Now she adds a major to her achievements.

Lilia embraces the moment

I was delighted for her. And I was even more delighted to her, and her caddy, taking the plunge into the green-side pond in the tradition of the championship. I was worried that this tradition would die when the Championship moved to a new course this year.

The leap: rated!

Well done again. This could be the start of something really special.
