The U.S. Senior Women's Open is being rescheduled to remove a conflict with the AIG Women's British Open.
Both tournaments were scheduled for Aug. 19-22.
The USGA announced Tuesday that the U.S. Senior Women's Open now will be played July 29-Aug. 1 at Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield, Conn. It will be the third installment of the tournament, which debuted in 2018 in Chicago.
The 2020 tournament was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. The defending champion is the 2019 winner, Helen Alfredsson of Sweden, who was victorious at Pine Needles in Southern Pines, N.C.
"In an effort to both ensure a strong field and prioritize our broadcast opportunities, we have made the decision to adjust the dates of the 3rd U.S. Senior Women's Open," said John Bodenhamer, the USGA's senior managing director, Championships, in a statement. "After listening to player feedback and consulting with our new broadcast partner, NBCUniversal, it was clear that separating the dates from the week of the AIG Women's Open was important to the overall success of the championship."
The AIG Women's British Open will be played at Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland.
