KOHLER, Wisconsin (WXOW) - It's one of the biggest events in Women's golf, and starting Thursday, it's back in Wisconsin.
The 2012 US Women's Open returns to Kohler's Blackwolf Run GC for the first time since 1998.
The faces of the women's game have certainly changed in the 14 years since Blackwolf last hosted the open. There are only a handful of players in the field this year who were there in '98. Given the difficulty of the course that experience could be very helpful come Thursday.
Christie Kerr can speak to that. The two-time major champion finished 60th in 1998, which was her first time playing in a major.
"As soon as I stepped on the first tee on Sunday, I started to remember the golf course," Kerr said. "I thought I did remember it, but as I've played it the last three days, things have started to come back to me. It's an advantage to know where you can hit it, where you can't miss it and know overall how the course is going to play."
