U.S. Women's Open tees off June 27
Golf's best women are teeing off June 27 at the 2013 U.S. Women's Open at a brand new course at Sebonack Golf Club in Southhampton. Although the course opened up in 2005, many fans are somewhat unfamiliar with the layout, according to the Long Island Press. After less than desirable conditions at the Men's U.S. Open, some are expecting the worst and hoping for a few pleasant surprises on the course.
"This is one of my favorite tournaments of the year. I'm excited to get started," Suzann Petterson, 11-time winner on the LPGA Tour, told Reuters. "I feel like I've done a lot of good stuff in my preparation. All I can do is to kind of ease up and try to play some good golf."
Michelle Wie, the former teen sensation in the world of golf, opened the day with little to be happy about. In the early leader board of the tournament, Wie appears at the near bottom of list with a quadruple-bogey eight and double bogey in the first round. Wie has yet to win a LPGA major title.
