  MONDAY'S PRACTICE ROUNDS

- So Yeon Ryu, Belen Mozo, Mariajo Uribe and defending and two-time U.S. Women's Open champion Inbee Park, who was on hand to scout in-person Sunday, played the first practice round of the U.S. Women's Open week teeing off at 6:45 a.m. Monday, about 11 hours after Martin Kaymer finished his championship victory Sunday evening.

- More than 1,000 rounds were played on Pinehurst No. 2 from Monday-Sunday of the men's Open.

- “I think if anybody was here walking (Monday) morning, they wouldn’t know the U.S. Open was played here last week," said the USGA's director of the U.S. Women's Open Ben Kimball.

“I think the women are really going to find that the things that they were concerned about early on are not going to be a concern," he said.

- Park said...

"We’re playing approach shots from different spots than the men so divots in the fairway won’t be a problem."

“The USGA did a very good job of keeping the course in shape... It feels like it’s a new course.”

 

  YOUNGEST AND OLDEST

Inbee Park, in 2008, became the youngest U.S. Women's Open champ at 19 years, 11 months and 18 days old.

Babe Zaharias is the most-senior champion. She won the 1954 Open in Salem Country Club in Peabody, Mass. at 43 years and six months old. Zaharias won with a 3-over-par total for 72 holes and defeated the rest of the field by 12 strokes. Zaharias won the 1947 North and South Women's Amateur Championship at Pinehurst. The 1954 Open was the last of her 10 major championships.
