Teenagers Top The Leader Board At The Womens US Open
Determination, poise, focus and talent were abundant, as teens topped the leader board at the 2005 Women's US Open. Younger players at the 2005 US Women's Open gained much more than experience. They definitely made their impact as the future leaders in womens golf Michelle Wie (15), Morgan Pressel (17), Paula Creamer (18) and Brittany Lang (19) were among some of the teens competing on the course at Cherry Hills Village, CO for the coveted title of Women's US Open champion. All three finished in the top 25 Pressel tied for the #2 spot with Brittany Lang, Creamer 19th, and Wie finished tied for the 23rd spot.
The final round on Sunday began with the winner Birdie Kim trailing third-round leaders Morgan Pressel, Karen Stupples and Michelle Wie by one shot. Approaching the 18th hole, Pressel and Kim were tied for the lead. In an instant Kim holed out of a bunker to make golf history, and shatter the hopes of 17-year-old amateur Morgan Pressel.
