US Women's Open 2012: 8 Stars to Watch

Blackwolf Run is a Long Test

The best women’s golfers on the planet are converging in Wisconsin for the 67th United States Open this weekend.

This is the second time that Blackwolf Run has hosted the Open, the last time being in 1998.

At 6954 yards, this is the longest course in the major championship rotation this year. In fact, the course is actually longer than next year’s men’s Open layout at Merion Golf Club outside of Philadelphia by nearly 100 yards.

While not usually as stern of a test as the men’s Open, the length of this course will keep scoring at a premium and thoroughly examine both the physical and mental aspects of all 156 women playing.

The major storyline of the weekend focuses on Yani Tseng and her quest to complete the career grand slam. Tseng, 23, has five majors already on her resume including the Kraft Nabisco, LPGA Championship and Women’s British. Her five is the most, regardless of gender, of anyone that young of all-time.

Fan favorite Michelle Wie is ready to focus on her game again full time, while Stacy Lewis is the highest ranked American player in the world.

Here is a quick look at how the biggest stars of the LPGA should do in golf’s toughest test.
