Here come the girls - it's the US Women's Open

The flagship event of the LPGA's golfing calendar is set to take place at the Saucon Valley Country Club and world number one Lorena Ochoa heads the market at odds of 6/1.

It has been a tough year for women golfers with a reduction in prize money and less events to get involved in combined with poor organisation means this event will be even more crucial to so many players to do well in.

This looks a great line up with the best pros and some exciting amateurs lining up which should help the event step out of the shadow of next week's Open and get punters excited about watching some top quality women's golf.

Ochoa is yet to win the US Women's Open and she would dearly love to add it to her British Open and Kraft Nabisco Major titles and she came close when second behind Christie Kerr in 2007.

It is no secret that she is debatably the most talented golfer around but at odds of 6/1 there it may pay to look a bit further down the field for some good each value in the great event.

Ochoa's 2007 conqueror Kerr is herself available at 16/1 and looks sure to give a good account of herself. She is a demon putter (seventh overall) and had good accuracy (fifth in GIR) which makes this birdie machine a potent threat to all involved.

Morgan Pressel first played in this event at the tender age of 12 and now at 21 she is really starting to come of age having finished in a share of second in 2005 and 10 in 2007 before a respectable 17 last year.

She has the head to win a Major having captured the Kraft Nabisco back in 2007 and she comes in to this tournament in good form at decent odds of 25/1.

Second favourite Jiyai Shin will have her supporters as she may only have been on the tour for two year but has won five tournaments in just 31 starts which is some record and will be thereabouts at 10/1.

Paula Creamer is one of the bigger names to consider at 16/1 while Taiwan's Yani Tseng won two starts ago and is available at 12/1.

Two at bigger prices to watch for are Anna Nordqvist and Brittany Linicome who are both priced at odds of 80/1. Nordqvist won the LPGA Championship earlier this season so is clearly a force to be reckoned with in the Majors, as is Brittany Linicome who won the Kraft Nabisco this year.

Linicome has competed well in the US Open before and if she gets going will be a danger to all at the top of the leader board and is worth an each way punt.

Of the amateurs, Jennifer Song could be the one to watch after her university won the U.S Women's Public Links tournament and she was named Golfweek's College Player of the Year and she is 125/1 for Major glory on her debut.

Don't forget we also have a host of other markets including 3 balls, top 10 finish, margin of victory and many more.


Morgan Pressel - 25/1

Brittany Linicome - 80/1
