How about Greg Chalmers winning the Baracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada, his first on TOUR, giving the 42-year old Australian an invitation to the Open Championship at Royal Troon, and a 2 year playing exemption.
The Womens U.S. Open was played at the Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed CordeValle golf course in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains in California with American Brittany Lang winning after Anna Nordqvist was assessed a 2 shot penalty for grounding her club in a bunker on the 17th hole in a 3 hole aggregate playoff.

The UL International Crown was played outside Chicago at The Merit Club and won by the US Team of Stacey Lewis, Gerina Piller, Christie Kerr and Lexi Thompson in a fantastic finish after losing all the first day matches.
