In just a matter of weeks, the best female golfers in the world will compete for the game's greatest prize, the US Womens Open championship, right here in Wisconsin. Blackwolf Run in Kohler, for the second time, will host the 67th annual championship July 2-8. In 1998, South Korea's Se Ri Pak defeated Jenny Chuasiriporn in a dramatic 20 hole playoff. Chuasiriporn rolled in a 40 foot putt on the 72nd hole to force the the playoff. Pak was forced to take off her shoes on the 18th hole to launch a shot from a creek that extended the tournament to it's thrilling conclusion. Blackwolf Run underwent an extensive renovation over the past two years and the tournament will be played on it's original 18 hole layout. On Tuesday, defending Open champion So Yeon Ryu, another South Korean, played the course along with members of the media. Afterwards, officials held a news conference to talk about the 5th major to be hosted on a Kohler Company course.
