Susie Maxwell Berning won the first of her three U.S. Women's Open titles, three shots ahead of runner-up Mickey Wright, a four-time champion. It was the second of four major titles for Berning, a newlywed of less than two months. She led wire-to-wire and bogeyed the final three holes.

Defending champion Catherine Lacoste, still an amateur, finished thirteen strokes back, tied for thirteenth place.
