Photos: Lilia Vu through the years

It’s been quite the ride for 2023 Chevron Championship winner Lilia Vu.

As an amateur, Vu was a premiere player, ranked No. 1 in the world for 31 weeks and representing the United States a handful of times before and during her stint at UCLA.

As a Bruin, Vu earned numerous awards including 2016 Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and 2018 WGCA Player of the Year and three first-team All-American nods.

Vu earned her LPGA card straight out of college via Q-School, but lost her status after being unable to secure a high enough spot on the money list.

Winning three times during the 2021 Epson Tour season, Vu earned Player of the Year honors and secured full status for the 2022 LPGA season.

It didn’t take long for Vu to get back to her winning ways as she took home the Honda LPGA Thailand in February of 2023. The win helped propel her inside the top 20 in the world.

Now with a major championship under her belt, the Hawaii native should jump inside the top 10 and will likely be there to stay as major season continues to roll on.
