Women Tee Off at US Women's Open Championship

The US Women's Open Golf Championship's last day tees off at 3pm EST, 8pm UK time.

The US Women's Open Golf Championship at Pinehurst in North Carolina enters its last day today (3pm EST, 8pm UK time). Reigning champion Inbee Park will be looking to defend her title and maintain the dominance she has displayed in the past. She came fresh to Pinehurst after having won at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic with a final-round 61.

Some of Park's biggest threats include Stacy Lewis who ascended to become the No. 1 ranked player in the world and Jessica Korda who won the Airbus LPGA Classic in Mobile. But apart from these veterans, Park and her competition will also be playing with a many young players this year.  

Juniors vs. Veterans

This year's championship was marked by the attendance of 22 teenagers, with competitors like No. 1 women's amateur player in the world Minjee Lee who is just 18 years old, the 19 year old Lexi Thompson who has had four wins on the LPGA tour and Lydia Ko who won two LPGA tour events while still an amateur at 17.

Perhaps the most attention drawing young competitor in the US Women's Open this year is Lucy Li of California, who is two years from even becoming a teenager. At the very young age of 11, Li became the youngest person to ever qualify for a US Women's Open. In contrast, the oldest competitor this year is Dame Laura Davies. At the "exalted" age of 50, she could be a mother or even a grandmother to some of the competitors in the championship.
