A U.S. Women’s Open unlike any other commenced on a sun-splashed Thursday at Champions Golf Club.

For the first time in her LPGA Tour career, Sophia Popov is the outright first-round leader. The 2020 AIG Women’s Open champion set a career-low opening-round of 64 at Pelican Golf Club this afternoon and holds a two-stroke advantage in the inaugural Pelican Women’s Championship presented by DEX Imaging and Konica Minolta. Thompson ultimately shot an even-par 70 on the day and is tied for 22nd.

Mike Whan, we salute you!

Germany’s Sophia Popov claimed a magnificent first Major title as she held off international challengers to win the AIG Women’s Open at Royal Troon. The 27-year-old, who came into the championship ranked 304th in the world and without a main tour victory, secured the winner’s cheque of $675,000 after a stunning two-stroke success over the famous Ayrshire links.
