World No. 1 golfer Lilia Vu targets Paris Olympics amidst breakout success

Posted : 28 February 2024

Lilia Vu, the current world No. 1 in women's golf, revealed on Wednesday that she is approaching this year without setting numerous goals, but her top priority is to qualify for the Paris Olympics. The 26-year-old American, with Vietnamese heritage, is set to tee off in the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore, aiming to stay grounded despite her breakout year in 2023, where she won four LPGA tournaments, including two majors.


Vu acknowledges the pressure that comes with her elevated status but emphasizes the importance of realistic goals for the 2024 campaign. Her primary objective is to secure a spot in the Olympics and achieve additional victories throughout the year. Vu, who won her maiden tour event at LPGA Thailand last year, is focused on attainable targets and learning to manage the newfound pressure.


Attributing her resilience to her family's support and values, Vu highlighted the influence of her late grandfather, who built a boat to help the family escape war-torn Vietnam in 1982. Vu sees her family as her greatest believers, and everything she does is motivated by them. Despite her grandfather's passing in 2020, his words of encouragement before a tournament continue to inspire her.


As one of the top-ranked players in the world, Vu joins an elite field for the HSBC Women's World Championship, known as "Asia's major." Former world No. 1 Ko Jin-young of South Korea, aiming for a hat-trick of Singapore titles, is among the competitors. Following this tournament, the US LPGA Tour concludes its three-tournament Asian swing in China at the Blue Bay tournament on Hainan Island next week.
