2020 Championship A Lim Kim, of the Republic of Korea, birdied the final three holes to edge Amy Olson and world No. 1 Jin Young Ko by one stroke at Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the championship was rescheduled from its original June date to mid-December. Both courses at Champions (Cypress Creek and Jackrabbit) were used the first two days due to daylight issues, and the USGA made the decision to have an all-exempt field. The championship also spilled over to Monday because of a Sunday storm. Kim, 25, was competing in her first major championship and first event in the United States. To read more, click here.
