Major season is well underway, and the next instalment of the game’s showpiece events comes from Lancaster Country Club, in Pennsylvania.

Established in 1946, the US Women’s Open is the oldest of the LPGA Tour’s five major championships and boasts the highest purse in women’s golf.

An elite field will contest the $12 million total, with World No.1 Nelly Korda a strong favourite. The American has won six of her last seven starts.

It’s only the second time that Lancaster has played host to the US Women’s Open, after 20-year-old Chun In-gee won her first major title in 2015.

She’ll be one of eight past champions in the field, which includes last year’s hero Allisen Corpuz. It was also the Hawaiian’s first major win and Pebble Beach was a nice place to do that.

A further 62 players found their way into the field through final qualifying, which took place across the USA, Germany, Canada, and Japan.

US Women’s Open betting tips

Here’s who the bookies fancy to shine this week…

Nelly Korda 7/2

The bunkered bet

Hannah Green 33/1

All the pressure is on Korda this week, but there is nothing to suggest she won’t be able to handle it. There’s a reason her odds are as short as Scottie Scheffler’s were before he won the Masters. Korda being such an outright favourite obviously means there is value elsewhere. The Australian Hannah Green has won twice already this season and has the right temperament for majors after winning the Women’s PGA in 2019. But she will need to adjust to more difficult conditions set up by the USGA to improve on her best finish of 13th in this event at Lancaster Country Club.
