The 2005 U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship was the 60th U.S. Women's Open, held June 23–26 at Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado, a suburb south of Denver. The par-71 course was set at 6,749 yards (6,171 m), at an average elevation over 5,300 feet (1,620 m) above sea level. The event was televised by ESPN and NBC Sports.

Birdie Kim holed out from a greenside bunker on the 72nd hole to win her only major title, two strokes ahead of runners-up Brittany Lang and Morgan Pressel, both teenage amateurs from the United States.[1] In the final pairing as a 54-hole co-leader, Pressel needed to hole her chip shot to tie, but it went 20 feet (6 m) past and she bogeyed. Lang had earlier missed a par putt from 8 feet (2.4 m). Lorena Ochoa made four birdies on the back nine and led with one hole remaining, but made a quadruple-bogey on the 72nd hole to finish four strokes behind.[2][3]

Pressel, 17, held a share of the 54-hole lead, with Karen Stupples and amateur Michelle Wie, age 15; Kim was one stroke back in a three-way tie for fourth, with 18-year-old Paula Creamer and Young Jo.[4][5]

This was the first U.S. Women's Open at Cherry Hills, which previously hosted three U.S. Opens (1938, 1960, 1978) and two PGA Championships (1941, 1985).
