GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (July 16, 2015) – The Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft will host some of the biggest names in female golf at the Blythefield Country Club next week. The final field includes several players on the LPGA’s Top 10 money list, including No. 1 in the world Inbee Park and Michigan native Morgan Pressel, as well as Meijer LGPA Classic defending champion Mirim Lee.
Other notable players scheduled to vie for the $2 million purse include Lexi Thompson, Brittany Lincicome, Ai Miyazato and Cristie Kerr.
Two collegiate golfers – Cat Peters, of the University of Michigan, and Kaitlin Park, of Northwestern University – will join the professional golfers on the course. The two earned sponsor exemption spots into the official four-day tournament after an 18-hole qualifying tournament last month.
The Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft will host a full field of 144 players in the 72-hole, four-day competition being held July 21-26 at Blythefield Country Club. Tickets for the tournament are on sale at meijerLPGAclassic.com.

Similar to last year, proceeds from the tournament – and each of the week’s festivities – will benefit the Meijer Simply Give program that restocks the shelves of food pantries throughout the Midwest. The inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft raised more than $600,000 for the Simply Give program.
