2020 U.S. Women’s Open tee times: First round groupings for Thursday

The 2020 U.S. Women’s Open will finally be played just before the year comes to a close, beginning this Thursday. You can find full first round tee times for the tournament at the bottom of this post.

Notable groupings for U.S. Women’s Open Round 1

Twenty-two-year-old Nelly Korda has quickly become the top-ranked American golfer on the LPGA, capturing three victories in her young career to reach No. 3 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings. Despite a near-miss at the 2020 ANA Inspiration, where she lost in a playoff, Korda has yet to add a major championship win to her resume. That could all change this week.

Korda will start her 2020 U.S. Women’s Open campaign at 11:59 p.m. ET on the Cypress Creek course at Champions Golf Club. She’ll be joined by Heejeong Lim and another American star, Lexi Thompson. Thompson finished T2 at last year’s U.S. Women’s Open, her best career finish in the event.

Defending champion Jeongeun Lee6, who clipped Thompson by one stroke last year at the Country Club of Charleston, won’t give up her title without a fight. Lee6 tees off for the opening round at 11:37 a.m. ET alongside Gabriela Ruffels and Hinako Shibuno.

Other notable groupings for Thursday’s first round include Danielle Kang, Anna Nordqvist and Jin Young Ko (11:37 a.m. ET); Jessica Korda, Amy Yang and Georgia Hall (11:59 a.m. ET); Sophia Popov, Mi Jung Hur and Carlota Ciganda (11:48 a.m. ET); Brooke Henderson, Hyejin Choi and Lizette Salas (11:37 a.m. ET); and Lydia Ko, Sei Young Kim and Brittany Altomare (11:48 a.m. ET).
