American Bryanna Cote won the 2023 U.S. Women's Open.
In the championship game at the ABC Gates Bowl on Tuesday night, the 37-year-old right-hander from Tucson, Arizona, defeated Colombia's Clara Guerrero 153-142 to win her first major championship.
A victory in the title match earned Cote a green jacket, the iconic trophy and the $60,000 first-place check.
Latvia's Diana Zavjalova, who earned the No. 3 seed with 12,112 total in 56 games (206.64 avg.) and 18-6 W-L record in the Match-play round, finished fourth, after losing to No. 5 seed Danielle McEwan 192-227 in the Stepladder game 2.
