''It's history for women's golf,'' said Crosby, who played for 17 seasons on the LPGA and won twice. "We've worked really hard.''

A senior event for women is rare, there are only a few events on the Legends Tour, so a chance to play is an important step for golf.

''I mean, just being here, it's just an amazing feeling,'' Liselotte Neumann said.

Trish Johnson, who won the first Senior LPGA Championship last year, is tied in second place with Neumann and Laura Davies at 2-under.

''It's a U.S. Open,'' Johnson said. ''My sort of pressure, I suppose for me, is that I won the first Senior LPGA Championship. So I'm the only one that can win them both at the same time, the first one. So that would be quite something.''

The opening tee shot was played by JoAnne Carner, 79. The oldest player in the field, she shot her age and is hoping to make the cut.

''It's four rounds walking, which is not something you do on The Legends Tour,'' Johnson said. ''It's hot, and it's going to get hotter, so you might be - it might be about stamina to be honest.''
