The 70th U.S. Women’s Open is being played from July 9-12 at Lancaster Country Club in southeast Pennsylvania.

The LPGA is the fastest growing tour in sports right now. The number of new and exciting young stars is fantastic. Stacy Lewis, Paula Creamer, Lydia Ko, Michelle Wie, Lexi Thompson, and Inbee Park are on that list. Many new tournaments have been added, and some include additional features like the KPMG Tournament’s Women’s Leadership Summit, a great inspirational experience for young women.

The women’s tour is very fan-friendly, so plan to take your kids to one of these events where they interact more with youngsters.

The world’s top female golfers and some very talented amateurs will compete at the U.S. Open, as it continually reigns as the world’s greatest women’s championship. Tune in and enjoy the excitement!

Jessica Korda, Michelle Wie, and Charley Hull are young stars in the women’s game.

The LPGA Tour has rebounded from the doldrums of 2008 and is one of the best tours in the world right now.

There are young stars ready to win, and the veterans are still competitive.

Even though Michelle Wie has been around the ladies game for nearly 10 years, she is finally maturing and already has a win on the LPGA Tour this year.

Through 13 events in 2014 only one winner is over the age of 30. Thirty-nine-year-old Karrie Webb won both the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open and the JTBC Founders Cup.

Jessica Korda (21), Anna Nordqvist (26) and Stacy Lewis (29) are the other multiple winners this season.

Lewis won the Shoprite LPGA Classic this week and will reclaim the No. 1 spot on the Rolex Rankings.

Youngsters Lydia Ko, Lexi Thompson and Lizette Salas have also won this year and seem to challenge every week.

The LPGA Tour is deep with talent, and every tournament offers exciting action for golf fans.
