Women's British Open Winners

 

The Women's British Open is one of the five major championships of women's golf. It is currently co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour and the LPGA - but neither of those organizations runs it. The Women's British Open (or "WBO") is run by the Ladies Golf Union. Below are all the winners going back to the founding of the tournament (with playoffs noted in parentheses):

2013: Stacy Lewis, 280
2012: Jiyai Shin, 279
2011: Yani Tseng, 272
2010: Yani Tseng, 277
2009: Catriona Matthew, 285
2008: Jiyai Shin, 270
2007: Lorena Ochoa, 287
2006: Sherri Steinhauer, 281
2005: Jeong Jang, 272
2004: Karen Stupples, 269
2003: Annika Sorenstam, 278
2002: Karrie Webb, 273
