NOTES:

The first USGA Senior Women's Amateur championship was played in 1962 at the Manufacturer's Golf and Country Club in Oreland, Pennsylvania. In its 50 years of competition, the championship has had 27 different winners. Eleven golfers have won the title more than once. The event moved to match play in 1997 and became the last of the 10 national amateur championships to adopt a match-play format. Sectional qualifying was first conducted for the 2000 championship.

This event is open to female amateurs who have reached their 50th birthday by Sept. 8 and who have a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 18.4. The deadline for entries was July 25. In 2011, a total of 507 entries were accepted for the championship. In 2010, a total of 543 entries were accepted, which tied the championship record established in 2006.

The Senior Women's Amateur Championship Trophy was presented in 1962 by the United States Golf Association and Friends of Senior Golf. Ironically, when Marlene Streit of Canada won the 1985 championship, she declined to take possession of the trophy, fearing a hassle with Canada's custom officials when she returned home. The trophy stayed at USGA headquarters in New Jersey for the year.

The 2012 Senior Women's Amateur will be the first USGA competition conducted at Hershey Country Club. This year's championship will be the 81st USGA championship held in Pennsylvania, and the first since the 2010 U.S. Women's Open at Oakmont Country Club, won by Paula Creamer. In addition, this will be the sixth Senior Women's Amateur held in Pennsylvania.

Last year, Terri Frohnmayer defeated defending champion Mina Hardin, 2 & 1, to win her first title at the USGA Senior Women's Amateur Championship. Frohnmayer, 55, appeared in her first USGA national final and, with her victory, she ended Hardin's chances at becoming the first player to successfully defend this title since Diane Lang in 2005-06.

In 2010, Hardin became the first female citizen of Mexico to win a USGA national championship, as shed edged Alexandra Frazier, 2 & 1.

Lang became a three-time champion of this event in 2008, as she defeated Toni Wiesner, 6 & 5, at Tulsa Country Club. Lang became the sixth woman to win the Senior Women's Amateur three or more times. Wiesner, who was a three-time runner-up at this championship, passed away in July 2009.

In 2007, Anna Schultz won the USGA Senior Women's Amateur Championship in 20 holes over Robyn Puckett. That year's playoff was the third extra-hole final since the championship went to a match-play format in 1997. Schultz played in her third USGA final, having finished as the runner-up in the 2006 Senior Women's Amateur and the 2000 Women's Mid-Amateur.

Lang became the seventh player to win this championship in back-to-back seasons, as she defeated Schultz, 1-up in 2006 at Sea Island Golf Club. With the victory, Lang joined Loma Smith, Carolyn Cudone, Alice Dye, Dorothy Porter, Anne Sander and Carol Semple Thompson as the only players to win this historic championship in successive years.

In 2005, playing in this championship for the first time, Lang defeated the grande dame of Women's Amateur golf, Semple Thompson, 1-up. Thompson was playing in her record 102nd USGA championship.

The 2013 championship will be played at CordeValle Resort in San Martin, California.
