After paying caddies $550 to collect as much data during last week’s U.S. Men's Open, it appears the USGA has found the right formula to make the U.S. Women’s Open comparable.
 
On a Pinehurst #2 that played more than 1,000 yards shorter, at 6,296 yards, for the women as compared to more than 7,300 yards each of the 4 days of the Men’s Open, par was a great number for any golfer to card.
 
The USGA was hoping to have the women play the same type of approach shots into the Donald Ross-designed turtleback greens and while the scores seem to indicate that was accomplished, my first-hand viewing of many of the holes saw way more hybrid and long-iron (heck, even fairway metal) approaches in by the women this week than the men last week.

Forget the fact that Wallace had the low score amongst the three, a (+4) round of 74, four better than the (+8) rounds of 78 O’Donnell and Li both carded.
