The Kraft Nabisco Championship also has the distinction of being the first major played on the LPGA Tour annually. Three players, Amy Alcott (1983, 1988, 1991), Betsy King (1987, 1990, 1997), and Annika Sorenstam (2001, 2002, 2005) have won the Kraft Nabisco Championship a record three times each.
Three more players, Juli Inkster (1984, 1989), Dottie Pepper (1992, 1999), and Karrie Webb (2000, 2006) have each won the tournament two times. Sandra Post (1978 and 1979) also won the Kraft Nabisco championship twice, but before the tournament was a major.
