Betsy Rawls won her fourth U.S. Women's Open, a stroke ahead of runner-up Joyce Ziske. Two-time defending champion Mickey Wright led by two strokes after 36 holes on Friday, but a difficult Saturday dropped her to fifth. She entered the championship with an ailing knee. It was the seventh of eight major championships for Rawls.

The low amateur was also the youngest competitor: 15-year-old Judy Torluemke (later Rankin) finished at 326 (+38), in 24th place.

The championship was held the same week as the PGA Championship, which concluded on Sunday.
