Notable LPGA Tour players will compete in 2018 tournament
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The final field for the 2018 Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give continues to be one of its strongest, featuring all four past champions: 2014 Champion Mirim Lee, 2015 Champion Lexi Thompson, 2016 Champion Sei Young Kim and 2017 Champion Brooke Henderson.
The complete field for the 2018 Meijer LPGA Classic was announced today for the tournament, which will be held June 12-17 at Blythefield Country Club.
The field consists of seven of the Top 10 golfers on the 2018 LPGA Official Money List, as well as many noteworthy LPGA Tour players, including Michelle Wie, Paula Creamer, Ariya Jutanugarn, Moriya Jutanugarn, Cristie Kerr, Lydia Ko, Pernilla Lindberg, Morgan Pressel and So Yeon Ryu.
“We are absolutely thrilled that the tournament continues to attract the top players from the LPGA Tour to our own backyard,” said Cathy Cooper, Executive Director of the Meijer LPGA Classic. “The support these players receive from our community is truly incredible, and because of that, they look forward to playing in our tournament each year.”
The 2018 Meijer LPGA Classic will host a full field of 144 of the best women golfers for 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition. Proceeds from the tournament – and each of the week’s festivities – will once again benefit the Meijer Simply Give program that restocks the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest. The 2017 tournament raised $1 million for local food pantries through Simply Give. In total, the four tournaments have generated more than $3.1 million for the Meijer Simply Give program.
