First established in 1976 and now organised by The R&A, the AIG Women’s Open is one of five major championships in women’s golf.

Each year an international field of 144 players compete for the championship trophy with the low amateur, who plays 72 holes, awarded the Smyth Salver. Anna Nordqvist is the defending AIG Women’s Open Champion after her victory at Carnoustie in 2021.

Anna Nordqvist held her nerve brilliantly to claim a dramatic one-shot victory in the 2021 AIG Women’s Open and her third major title. On a fittingly thrilling final day of a Championship that welcomed back fans this week, the 34-year-old Swede parred each of Carnoustie’s demanding final four holes for a 69 that gave her a 12-under aggregate of 276.
