History will be made Thursday when the U.S. Women’s Open Championship kicks off at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina, a week after Martin Kaymer captured the men’s championship on the same venue. This will mark the first time men and women have played a golf major at the same venue on back-to-back weeks.

The top female players in the world will take the spotlight at the par-70 6,649 yard championship course including five Canadians who will look to bring home Canada’s first U.S. Women’s Open Championship title.
