Chevron Championship, Statement
LPGA Commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan commented: Welcome another major global company to a portfolio of sponsors who believe in the power of LPGA to inspire female leaders, showcase human performance at the highest levels and emphasize the importance of diversity and inclusion in all aspects of life. That’s really a game-it changes for us.
We are very grateful to Chevron for its extraordinary commitment to LPGA and the overall player experience and look forward to a long and successful relationship. The 2022 Chevron Championship will be held from March 31st to April 3rd, 2022 at the Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California.
As part of a new era, the Chevron Championship will move to a new home in late spring. The new home is likely to be in the Houston area from the 2023 edition. New host clubs will be confirmed within the next few months.
By moving the date in late spring, LPGA was also able to secure a long-term commitment to air the championship on network TV from NBC Sports. In addition, moving to major areas like Houston encourages a great deal of fan involvement, participation and excitement within the community and among Chevron employees.
Chevron, LPGA and IMG are dedicated to celebrating the important role Rancho Mirage and the club have played in the history of the tournament at the 2022 event. They will also ensure that the long-standing traditions and memories built up in Mission Hills will be brought to the new venue.
Marquee Samarn added: Since David Foster and Dinah Shore founded the tournament in 1972, it has held a special place in the hearts of players and fans around the world. Regardless of where it’s held, Dina and her influence will be an integral part of the Chevron Championship, along with the history built at Mission Hills.
We thank ANA and Mission Hills for their generous support and look forward to celebrating a long tradition as we continue to grow in the history of women’s sports. Lydia Ko, player director of the LPGA Board and winner of the 2016 Chevron Championship, said:
Their desire to grow this major along with LPGA and IMG is great for the future of our tour. We all made wonderful memories at Mission Hills over the years. It enjoys celebrating in 2022 and takes you to the new home of the Chevron Championship.
ANA, which supported the tournament in seven editions, will continue to be a partner in 2022. Ed McEnroe, SVP of Golf Events at IMG, said:
Their vision and enthusiasm for cooperation will not only enhance the status of the Chevron Championship, but will also have a significant impact far beyond the tournament itself. Thank you to ANA. They have been great partners for the past seven years, and their support during this pandemic really exceeds, given how seriously the aviation industry has been affected over the last 18 months.
We look forward to furthering the legacy of this great championship, which celebrated its 50th edition just six months ago. ”
