Jennifer Kupcho is one of the most anticipated golfers at this year's Chevron Championship. It will be an interesting challenge for Kupcho to defend the title that she won last year, and she is hoping to do well. There are a few interesting things about this year's tournament, one of which is that it will take place in Houston for the first time.
Kupcho spoke about her ambitions and revealed the main differences. "I think the biggest thing is probably the length of the golf course. It's really long," Kupcho said, as quoted by france24.com "We're going to have a lot of long irons into the par-4s and the greens are definitely a lot trickier versus in the desert.
It's going to be a lot windier. Texas is generally windy, though, so you expect that. The humidity, the ball doesn't quite go as far here as in the desert, so that contributes to the length." Georgia Hall, on the other hand, will also be one of the more interesting faces of this tournament.
Hall revealed that she had never felt so great. "In the US, it's definitely the most comfortable that I've felt," she said. "It's the best I've been playing. I'm number one on the money list. I've never been this comfortable, I think, before a major."
Nelly Korda's ambitions
While Nelly Korda is content with the form she is in, she believes that her results could be improved.
As a result, she is extremely motivated and determined to give her best performance this time around. "It's positive and negative that I'm playing well and I don't think that I've had my best stuff yet," Korda said. "So hopefully I can continue working on my game and peak in the right moments.
When I'm really not hitting it well, then I'm putting and my short game is pretty on point. I've been kind of lucky to miss in areas where it's better to miss."
