US Women's Open: Prediction, Tips and Odds

One year on from Allisen Corpuz’s composed victory at Pebble Beach Golf Links, the top female golfers in the world head to Lancaster Country Club in Pennsylvania for the 79th US Women’s Open.

The venue last staged the tournament in 2015 when Chun In-gee finished a shot clear of Amy Yang with their fellow Korean Inbee Park joint-third.

But all the talk ahead of this year’s event is of who can stop Nelly Korda with the American having already won six titles in 2024 with the first major of the year, The Chevron Championship, among them.

US Women's Open betting tips and predictions

Nelly Korda to win - 7/2

Korda’s dominant campaign ensures she is a heavy betting favourite before a ball is struck.

The 25-year-old has claimed six LPGA victories since January with two of them secured via playoffs.

Her Chevron Championship win in Texas was her fifth in succession on the Tour and drew her level with two of the greats of the women’s game - Nancy Lopez (1978) and Annika Sörenstam (2004–05) for consecutive victories.

Although streaks always come to an end, Korda’s purple patch is threatening to continue through the summer. 

After she finished a respectable 17th at the Cognizant Founders Cup in early May, she came straight back into the winner’s circle at the Mizuho Americas Open.

She leads the LPGA Tour in greens in regulation, putts per green in regulation and scoring average, with the first of those stats thought to be a key factor in determining the champion at Lancaster County Club, which has a reputation for being a second-shot course.  

Korda’s current hot form is now getting into the heads of many of her rivals and her uncanny ability to play precise golf when the pressure is on, such as in playoffs, suggests she is unlikely to be beaten this week. 

Hannah Green - 25/1

Australia’s Hannah Green is the only other multiple winner this season on the LPGA Tour, The Perth native having prevailed at the HSBC Women’s World Championship in March and the JM Eagle LA Championship presented by Plastpro in April. 

She finished a close second behind Korda at the Mizuho Americas Open on her last start after grappling with the world number one for 18 holes in the final pairing on Sunday.

Starting the day two back of Korda at 11-under, Green showed no signs of being overawed by the challenge when she matched her playing partner through the first nine holes and again through the next eight.

That left her needing to birdie the last and, after a wayward tee shot put her in trouble, she eventually finished with a bogey to lose by a single stroke.

It was an impressive effort from the 27-year-old, however, and she could push the American close again in Pennsylvania.

Green is fourth on the Tour in the key stat of greens in regulation and has performed slightly better than Korda this year in the bunkers and on the green with a better putting average and a higher ratio of sand saves.

Her accurate wedge work could prove useful at the par-5 13th hole, which has been fortified by the addition of four new bunkers since the US Women’s Open was last played at the course nine years ago.
