President Obama’s sincere message to Allisen Corpuz regarding the U.S. Women’s Open

Former U.S. President Barack Obama joined the golf community in congratulating Allisen Corpuz on winning the U.S. Women’s Open.

“Congratulations to fellow Hawaiian Allisen Corpuz for winning the U.S. Women’s Open,” Obama tweeted. “You make us all proud, and we eagerly anticipate a game at Kapolei!”

Brittany Lang is the first champion of the U.S. Women’s Open since 2016’s Brittany Lang. She accompanied Michelle Wie West, the only other Hawaiian winner of this historic competition. Wie West won it in 2014 at Pinehurst.

This was also the rookie of the year’s first professional victory in 2022.

Allisen Corpuz, a fellow Hawaiian, has won the United States Women’s Open. You make us all proud, and we eagerly anticipate a round at Kapolei.

Corpuz posted a score of 9 under par to win by three strokes. At Pebble Beach, she was the first woman to capture a major championship. The 25-year-old also received the largest check in LPGA history, which was worth $2 million.

No matter if the officials placed her on the clock for slow play or if she made a bogey, nothing could break her concentration.

Corpuz’s name will be displayed alongside those of Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, who both won majors at the renowned golf course.

“Tiger completely destroyed this location [in 2000]. Yes, it’s truly unique,” Corpuz told the USGA. Twenty or thirty years from now, just the fact that it’s the U.S. Open will mean a great deal to me, but knowing it’s at Pebble will make it even sweeter.

The fact that Obama is from the same state makes receiving a remark from him all the more special. He even invited Corpuz to play golf with him.
