The 2016 U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship was the 71st U.S. Women's Open, held July 7–10 at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, California, southeast of San Jose.

The U.S. Women's Open is the oldest of the five current major championships and the third of the 2016 season. It has the largest purse in women's golf at $4.5 million, and was televised by Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports.

Brittany Lang won her first major title in a playoff over Anna Nordqvist.[2]

Qualifying and field

The championship was open to any female professional or amateur golfer with a USGA handicap index not exceeding 2.4. Players qualified by competing in one of twenty 36-hole qualifying tournaments held at sites across the United States and at international sites in China, England, Japan, and South Korea. Additional players were exempt from qualifying because of past performances in professional or amateur tournaments around the world. The USGA received a record 1,855 entries for the championship.[3]

Playoff

The three-hole aggregate playoff was held on the final three holes, and any additional play in sudden-death was to occur on the final hole. Both players made pars on the first two holes, but it was soon determined that Nordqvist had slightly moved sand prior to her approach shot from the fairway bunker on 17, a two-stroke penalty (rule 13-4b). The players were told of the penalty by a rules official midway through the par-5 final hole, after Nordqvist's third shot but before Lang's.[2]
