Choi's title last year started a streak of four straight major championships by South Koreans. An American hasn't won a major since Lewis at the 2011 Kraft Nabisco Championship, a drought of nine tournaments.
Two-time champ Juli Inkster, who turned 53 on Monday, will be playing on a special exemption in her 34th U.S. Women's Open, which breaks the record held by Marlene Hagge.
Tournament officials will keep a close eye on the weather report, with strong winds expected, to decide on pin placement. Sebonack may be new to golf majors, but the challenges from the local conditions are well known. When neighboring Shinnecock Hills hosted the 2004 U.S. Open won by Retief Goosen in the wind, nobody broke par in the final round.
"I think this course, par is your friend," said Yani Tseng, who has five major titles but has yet to win a U.S. Women's Open.
Park predicted a few three-putts, knowing players will need to stay patient and calm. She's been doing that better than anyone lately.
"I'm trying to enjoy where I am," Park said, "and trying to keep this going as long as I can."
