Golf - Women's British Open

The newest addition to the LPGA Majors list, in 2001, the British Open is the only tournament to be universally recognised as a major on both sides of the Atlantic. The event was first held in 1976, when it was organised by the Ladies Golf Union, and became an official LPGA tournament in 1994.
