Significant rainfall led to the U.S. Open Women's Handicap (played simultaneously) to be moved to the arena, while Open Championship games were played on back-to-back days with remarkable upsets in preliminary play. The week was a whirlwind of unexpected activity and the superbly staffed and well-organized Houston Polo Club pulled off an outstanding tournament, each game bringing forth fast, competitive polo at the highest level. Hungry for a tournament win after losing in overtime to San Saba in 2017, Courtney and Bridget Price's Rocking P team worked as a well-oiled machine to dominate the Women's Open final 10-2 after four chukkers of commanding play. Midland (Molly Smith, Tiamo Hudspeth, Dayelle Fargey, Izzy Parsons) was looking forward to the rematch after falling to Rocking P (Prices, Tia Gross, Lara Lamacraft, Hazel Jackson), 6-1, in the opening match. Midland's Izzy Parsons reaches out to hook Rocking P's Hazel Jackson in the U.S. Open Women's final.
