That's what you notice right away about how a U.S. Women's Open is different from other women's events.
After Lorena Ochoa holed a 5-footer for par at the 13th hole, she shook her fist three times in triumph. Paula Creamer did the same thing after holing a 4-footer to save par at the 18th hole, her ninth hole of the day. It was like they made birdies at those holes. These greens are going to wear players out by week's end.
