All about the U.S. Women's Open

The US Women's Amateur, the forerunner to the Women's Open, was first played in 1895, more than a half century before the current tournament was sanctioned by the USGA.

In 1938 Opal Hill and Helen Hicks were two of the very few women golf professionals in the world. By 1946, there were enough female pro golfers to form the Women's Professional Golfers Association with the kickoff of the Women's Open held at the Spokane Country Club that year.

By 1950, the Ladies Professional Golf Association was founded by women golf pros including Louise Suggs and Babe Didrikson Zaharias. Three years later, the U.S. Women's Open was added to the championships sanctioned by the USGA.
