2008 U. S. Women's Open


This is a good time to watch the Ladies Golf with their 2008 Open Tournament being played at Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minnesota. This is an old golf course that has held many such famous golf tournaments. There is plenty of difficulty to challenge many of our lady golf Pro’s. This will be Annika Sorenstam final golf tournament as she has made it known that she will retire after this Open event. She did not fare too well on her opening round but hope she does much better the rest of the tournament.

Lorena Ochoa is the one who is favored as she has won six tournaments already this year. Although she played a round of even her first day and was playing with an amateur who was one of the leaders at minus four. This was remarkable for Maria Jose Uribe of Columbia who shot a 69 while playing along side Ochoa. Many of the worlds leading women golfers were at this tournament and many were doing quite well.

The leader at the end of the first day was Pat Hurst at age 39 was thrilled to she her name atop the leader board with a six under 67. She shared the lead with Ji Young Oh who also had a 67. This is remarkable golf for these two leaders and will be interesting to see how they fare the rest of the tournament. Thirty two players broke par on the first day as this golf course has five par fives which helps the long hitters. Rains have made the greens soft so helped players with their putts.

Due to a weather delay round two had to complete their round early in the morning. This led to Michelle Wie not making the cut for the rest of the tournament along with several others. Angela Park who is going to become a U. S. citizen led after the second round as she shot a 6 under 66.

Stacey Lewis was in the lead after the fourth day of the Open she had a bogey free round of 67 going into the final round on Sunday. She is a 23 year old Texas girl from the Woodlands. It has been fascinating to watch as all struggled to stay in contention. Paula Creamer played exceptional as she was one stroke back. Another young golfer Inbee Park of Korea is just 19 years old and played great only two strokes back.

The final round on Sunday was under beautiful weather as the gals from America were falling back and those with names of Park and Kim were in the lead back and forth. Annika Sorenstam on her final hole a par 4 holed out her fairway shot into the hole for a wonderful way to retire from this great game. Annika was a great player and made women’s golf a sure success. We wish her well in her new life.

Park was the only player in the final groups to break par. She finished at 9-under 283 and earned $585,000, she became the youngest woman to ever win the U. S. Open. As she was receiving her awards she was soaked with beer by her friends Jeong Jang and I.K. Kim. This is amazing to have someone so young to end up walking away with this tournament. More power to her and may we have more under girls taking up this sport. Inbee Park deserves our congratulation for some fantastic golf shots and putting in your winning effort at the U. S. Open. Your putting was really on line and amazing to watch.
