LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Bivens:
“We're thrilled by the USGA’s decision to stage the 2014 U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open in consecutive weeks on the same golf course, Pinehurst No. 2. It's truly a historic moment for the sport of golf. LPGA golfers will play a major championship on one of our sport's most renowned courses a week following the men's U.S. Open, providing a rare opportunity for fans, media and our partners to literally enjoy the best-and-the-best in this first-ever dual-Open format. We applaud David Fay and the USGA for their vision and innovation, and thank the organization for its on-going commitment to the LPGA."
This is the first year for the event.
