Golf fans from all over the country and the local area gathered at the U.S. Women’s Open on Thursday, May 30. Scott Hanson, a Mount Joy, Pennsylvania resident, expressed his excitement at having the event take place in Lancaster County. He was unable to attend in 2015 and is thrilled to be in attendance now. Hanson, an avid golfer, was especially excited to have played at Pinehurst, a PGA course, earlier this year.

Rick Carey, another fan at the event, has been following women’s golf and playing golf his whole life. The Reading, Pennsylvania native grew up down the road from Betsy King, which he says got him into the sport. This is Carey’s 8th U.S. Open event and he was at the course every day in 2015 when the U.S. Women’s Open first came to the Lancaster Country Club.

Melissa and Patrick Wells took a day trip from Newton, Pennsylvania with their two young daughters for the event. Patrick is a big golf fan. He went to the men’s competition when they were at Merion Golf Club in Haverford, Pennsylvania, but this is his first women’s event. They are doubling this special road trip as a celebration for one of their daughters, who was graduating from kindergarten on Friday.

Nathan Johnson and his family traveled from Woodbridge, Virginia to attend the U.S. Women’s Open. “One of these kids that’s working this, I coached him in high school,” said Johnson. He got an internship out here after he graduated from college and he said, ‘Coach I got four tickets for you’. I said I’m in.” Johnson is excited to be at the event.
