Texas native will compete in her 98th consecutive major championship

The Chevron Championship announced today that native Texan Angela Stanford will receive an exemption to play in the first major of the 2024 LPGA Tour season. Stanford, a member of the LPGA Tour since 2001, will compete in her 98th consecutive major championship, the longest active major streak in professional golf.

“Chevron is thrilled to welcome Angela Stanford, one of the finest American players of her generation, into the field at The Chevron Championship at The Club at Carlton Woods. Her dedication to excellence on and off the course is an inspiration and directly aligns with Chevron’s mission to elevate women’s golf through this championship,” said Al Williams, Vice President, Corporate Affairs at Chevron. “When Angela tees it up for her 98th consecutive major appearance, we know that her fellow Texans, including all of us at Chevron, will be cheering her on.”

Stanford, 46, has seven LPGA Tour victories, earning her first major title at the 2018 Amundi Evian Championship in her 18th season on tour. Her active consecutive major streak began with the 2002 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and included 66 made cuts. 2024 will mark Stanford’s 22nd consecutive appearance in The Chevron Championship, dating to 2003. She tied for third in 2011 and has 10 total top-10 finishes at The LPGA’s Major. Stanford is also the reigning Senior LPGA Championship winner, taking the senior major title in her 2023 debut at age 45.

“I’m beyond thrilled to receive this chance to play in The Chevron Championship, right here in my home state of Texas,” said Stanford. “When I began my LPGA Tour career in 2001, I couldn’t imagine the places my dream job would take me. Competing in 98 consecutive majors has so much to do with the people around me. I am so thankful to the team at Chevron for this opportunity to compete at The Club at Carlton Woods.”

Stanford has competed in six Solheim Cups, representing the USA in 2003, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015. In 2015, she earned the winning point for the U.S. Team with her 2-and-1 victory over Suzann Pettersen. Stanford served as an assistant captain for the 2023 U.S. Team and will again be on Captain Stacy Lewis’ leadership team in 2024. Off the course, the Angela Stanford Foundation provides scholarships to kids in her community whose families have been affected by cancer.
