NOTES:

The oldest and most prestigious championship in women's golf, the U.S. Women's Amateur marked the beginning of women's competitive golf in the United States. This event is one of the USGA's first three championships along with the U.S. Open and the U.S. Amateur. Dating back to 1895, the U.S. Women's Amateur boasts some very notable winners, such as: Glenna Collett Vare, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Louise Suggs, JoAnne Gunderson Carner, Beth Daniel, Juli Inkster, Pat Hurst, Kelli Kuehne, Grace Park, Morgan Pressel and Amanda Blumenherst. The USGA received a record 1,123 entries for the 2012 event, eclipsing the previous mark of 1,049 entries received for the 2010 tournament.

The 2012 U.S. Women's Amateur will be the second USGA championship conducted at The Country Club in Cleveland, Ohio. The club previously hosted the 1935 U.S. Amateur, won by Lawson Little. In addition, this year's Women's Amateur will be the 37th USGA championship staged in Ohio. Olin Browne won the most recent championship in Ohio at the 2011 U.S. Senior Open at Inverness Club in Toledo.

The champion receives a gold medal and custody of the Robert Cox Cup for the ensuing year. The runner-up receives a silver medal; the other semifinalists receive bronze medals. The champion receives an exemption from sectional qualifying for U.S. Women's Amateur Championships for the next ten years; an exemption from sectional qualifying for 10 years to the U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship, if otherwise eligible; an exemption from sectional qualifying for the next 10 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship, if otherwise eligible; an exemption from sectional qualifying for the next two U.S. Women's Open Championships, if still an amateur; an exemption from sectional qualifying for future USGA Senior Women's Amateur Championships, if otherwise eligible.

Last year, Danielle Kang cruised to a 6 & 5 win over Moriya Jutanugarn in the 36-hole final at Rhode Island Country Club. Kang became the first player since Kelli Kuehne (1995-96) to repeat as champion. The last time Rhode Island Country Club hosted the championship in 1987, Kay Cockerill successfully defended her title. In fact, two of the previous three repeat winners did so at Rhode Island Country Club. For the match, Kang had 11 birdies and only one bogey. Jutanugarn's sister, Ariya, captured the 2011 U.S. Girls' Junior title. Kang will not be on hand to defend her title this year, as she has since turned professional. Kang finished tied for 14th at the U.S. Women's Open Championship in July.

In 2010, Kang sank a four-foot birdie putt on the 35th hole to defeat Jessica Korda, 2 & 1, at Charlotte Country Club in North Carolina. Kang and Korda played the 35 holes in five-under-par.

In 2009, Jennifer Song outlasted Jennifer Johnson, 3 & 1, to capture the title. In doing so, Song etched her name in the record books, as she became just the second female in history to win two USGA championships in the same year. Just two months prior, Song won the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship.

Amanda Blumenherst grabbed her first lead on the 31st hole in 2008 and held off Azahara Munoz for a 2 & 1 win in the final. Blumenherst, the 2007 runner-up, got up and down for par on the 35th hole to seal the match after Munoz missed an eight-foot birdie putt. Blumenherst became the first collegian to win this trophy since Virada Nirapathpongporn in 2003.

In 2007, Maria Jose Uribe defeated Blumenherst in the 36-hole match play final to become the first Colombian ever to win a USGA title. Uribe was the second golfer from South America to win a USGA event in 2007, along with Argentina's Angel Cabrera, who captured the U.S. Open.

Kimberly Kim mounted an impressive comeback in 2006, as she became the youngest champion in the history of the championship, defeating Katharina Schallenberg, 1-up. Kim was four down after six holes and five down after 15 holes before storming back. Kim was 14 years, 11 months and 21 days old.

In 2005, Pressel won the first hole with a par and never trailed, as she cruised to a 9 & 8 win over Maru Martinez. Pressel was seven-under-par for the 28 holes.

The 2013 championship will be contested at the Country Club of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina.
