Quotable “Just to have something USGA, it feels very nice. Since one of my first years when I finished second, it was very special. I know one of the toughest tests you ever will do in golf is play a U.S. Open. And I always like tough, I think. Maybe not at 54, but yeah, it's nice to have that USGA [championship].” --Helen Alfredsson
