Women's Western Open

 

The Women's Western Open is another former LPGA Tour tournament whose origins actually pre-dated the formation of the tour.

But decades later - long after the tournament ceased to exist, in fact - the tour decided to count this event as a major championship. That means all its winners are LPGA major winners.

First played: 1930

Last played: 1967

Also known as: Always played under the same name.
