The Championship is open to any female amateur players who have not reached the age of 19 by July 22 and whose Handicap Index® does not exceed 9.4. A starting field of 156 players who have qualified for the championship or have otherwise earned an exemption will compete in the U.S. Girls’ Junior. Following two 18-hole rounds of stroke play, the field will be cut to the top 64 players for match play.
