USGA: 72nd U.S. Women’s Open Championship

USGA: 72nd U.S. Women’s Open Championship

Ariya Jutanugarn and Lydia Ko combined for nine LPGA Tour victories, including two majors, in 2016, and there’s no reason to believe these two young stars – Jutanugarn is 21 and Ko 19 – won’t continue that trend in 2017.

Ko was in position to claim last year’s U.S. Women’s Open at CordeValle until a couple of hiccups midway through the final round derailed her title hopes. Barring injury, both are likely to arrive at this summer’s championship as favorites to hoist the most coveted trophy in the women’s game.

Of course, defending champion Brittany Lang, who won her first major title in a dramatic playoff over Anna Nordqvist, might have something to say about that.
