2012 US Women’s Open Preview: Leaderboard

Webb … two-time US Women’s Open winner

KARRIE WEBB and Katherine Hull are the only Australians lining up this week for a wide open 2012 US Women’s Open.

The $US3.25 million event is broadcast early Friday AEST from the Blackwolf Run Golf Course in Kohler, Wisconsin.

The defending champion is South Korea’s So Yeon Ryu who defeated fellow countrywoman Hee Kyung Seo last year in the tournament’s first-ever all-international playoff.

Thirty-seven year old Webb has won the event twice, while world No.1 Yani Tseng is yet to get over the line.

Many American hopes lie with Stacy Lewis, who has had two wins and two runner-up finishes On the LPGA Tour this year to move from 10th to 2nd on the world rankings.

The 2012 US Open is being telecast in Australia on Fox Sports beginning Friday 7am to 10am.
