Instagram Roundup: U.S. Women’s Open Prep

The 2016 US Women’s Open is being held at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, California this week. The USGA runs this third major championship of the LPGA Tour, and like the men’s event, expect it to be the most challenging of the four majors.

To get a feel for how the practice and preparation is coming along, we turn to… where else?

Instragram of course.

Here’s a quick roundup of best from the #USWomensOpen thus far.

In this picture posted by the USGA, we can see that CordeValle is pretty easy on the eyes.

Lydia Ko is looking to capture her first US Women’s Open. For all the success she’s had, it’s surprising she doesn’t have her name on the trophy yet. In the video she discusses what it would mean to win this major.
