NOTES:
This event has proven to be a springboard for success for LPGA talent over the years. Past champions of this championship include: Mickey Wright, JoAnne Carner, Hollis Stacy, Nancy Lopez, Amy Alcott, Pat Hurst, Michelle McGann, Brandie Burton, Kelli Kuehne, Dorothy Delasin, Beth Bauer, Inbee Park, Julieta Granada, I.K. Kim and Lexi Thompson. Stacy was a three-time champion while Lopez captured this event twice. Paula Creamer lost to Granada in the semifinals in 2004. Morgan Pressel lost in the quarterfinals in 2004 and in the third round in 2005.

Last year, Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand, defeated Dottie Ardina, 2 & 1 to become the 16th stroke-play medalist in the 63-year history of the championship to take the victory. She also became the third player from Thailand to win a USGA title.

The duo were tied after 29 holes, however Jutanugarn captured the next two holes to take a 2-up lead. Ardina closed the gap with a birdie on the 33rd hole on the South Course at Olympia Fields (Ill.) Country Club. After both players parred the next hole, Ardina's long birdie try on the next hole slipped three feet past and her comeback putt missed as well. Jutanugarn's 4-foot par putt clinched the two-hole victory.

Doris Chen defeated Katelyn Dambaugh, 3 & 2 in 2010, to win the U.S. Girls' Junior Championship. Chen wrapped up the victory when both players birdied the par-three 16th at The Country Club of North Carolina. It was the 34th hole of their scheduled 36-hole match play final. Riding a wave of momentum that increased throughout the week, Chen won the title after making the stroke-play cut on Tuesday by only a shot. It marked her second consecutive strong showing at the championship following a semifinal loss in 2009.

In 2009, stroke-play medalist Amy Anderson rolled to a 6 & 5 victory over Kimberly Kim in the final. Anderson, from Oxbow, North Dakota, never trailed in her scheduled 36-hole match against Kim, a decorated USGA player who made only one birdie over the 31 holes they played. Anderson became the first stroke-play medalist to win this event since Granada in 2004. Kim had previously won the 2006 U.S. Women's Amateur at the age of 14 -- the youngest-ever winner of that championship. She was playing in her third USGA amateur final.

Alexis Thompson became the second-youngest winner in championship history in 2008, as she defeated Karen Chung, 5 & 4, at Hartford Golf Club in Connecticut. At 13 years, 5 months and 17 days, Thompson was only two months older than 1999 champion Aree Song Wongluekiet, who was 13 years, 3 months, 7 days. Chung, also 13, would have been nine days older than Wongluekiet. The final marked the first time two 13-year-olds had competed for the championship. For the first time in championship history, the event was completed on Sunday.

Only two golfers have won consecutive titles - July Eller (1958-59) and Hollis Stacy (1969-1971). Lopez also won two championships, in 1972 and 1974, but not consecutively.

Jenny Shin defeated Vicky Hurst in 2006 on the 37th hole of the scheduled 36-hole match, the first 36-hole final in championship history. Shin won the 33rd and 36th holes to square the match and then her opponent, after hitting into a water hazard and then a greenside bunker, conceded the match on the 37th hole.

This tournament is open to female amateur players who will not have reached their 18th birthday on or before July 21, and who have a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 18.4. The USGA accepted a record 1,086 entries in 2011. The USGA received 1,070 entries for the 2012 championship, the third consecutive year that entries surpassed 1,000.

The 2012 U.S. Girls' Junior will be the 70th USGA championship conducted in the state of California. The 2012 U.S. Open was played at The Olympic Club in San Francisco one month prior to the Girls' Junior. This will be the sixth Girls' Junior conducted in the state, with the most recent playing in 1993 at Mesa Verde Country Club in Costa Mesa. Lake Merced is hosting its second USGA Championship, having previously held the 1990 U.S. Junior Amateur, which was won by Mathew Todd.

The 2013 U.S. Girls' Junior will be held at Sycamore Hills Golf Club, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The dates of the championship are July 22-27.
