Official Tournament Website
The US Women's Open is one of the women's world Golf Major Championships. It is one of thirteen national championships conducted by the United States Golf Association (USGA). It is the only event to have been recognised as a major by the LPGA since its founding in 1950; the other current majors were established later.
In 2007, non-American players outnumbered Americans for the first time. The 2008 tournament was won by 19-year-old South Korean Inbee Park, who became the event's youngest winner ever.

Na Yeon Choi carded a final-round, 1-over-par 73 to win the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open at Blackwolf Run on Sunday by four strokes over fellow Korean Amy Yang.
Choi became the sixth Korean Women’s Open champion and the fifth in the last eight playings, joining Se Ri Pak (1998), Birdie Kim (2005), Inbee Park (2008), Eun-Hee Ji (2009) and So Yeon Ryu (2010).
Choi, who shot a course-record 65 in Saturday’s third round to take a six-stroke lead into the final round, overcame a triple-bogey 8 on the par-5 10th hole that saw her lead trimmed to two strokes over Yang. But she rebounded with a birdie on No. 11 and then holed a long putt at the 12th to keep the positive momentum.
Choi wound up with a 72-hole total of 7-under 281, nine better than when Pak claimed the title here 14 years ago to spark a Korean revolution in women’s professional golf.
Yang, the only golfer in the final seven groups to post an under-par score, finished with a 1-under 71 and a 285 total. Choi and Yang were the only players among the 65 to play the weekend to complete 72 holes under par.
Germany’s Sandra Gal was third at 1-over 289 after a final-round 74. Paula Creamer, the 2010 champion, was the low American at 3-over 291, which shared seventh place. Creamer had a final-round 74.
