Meijer LPGA Collegiate Invitations Awards Sponsor Exemptions into Meijer LPGA Classic

Who: Cat Peters, of the University of Michigan, and Kaitlin Park, of Northwestern University

What: The two collegiate golfers qualified today to compete in championship play during the Meijer LGPA Classic presented by Kraft, held July 23-26 at Blythefield Country Club.

Cat Peters shot 2 under par with a score of 70, while Kaitlin Park shot par with a score of 72. They were among 33 other collegiate golfers who participated in the Meijer LPGA Collegiate Invitational, an 18-hole qualifying tournament to fill two sponsor exemption spots into the official four-day tournament.

“We’ve all played together a lot, so you know what to expect from these girls. You have to bring your A-Game. It’s one shot at a time,” said Peters, 21, of Buffalo, New York. “I am excited to have this opportunity to not only play against some of the best college women, but also have the opportunity to see how my game measures against some of the best in professional women’s golf.”

“Every player woke up today and wanted to be that Top 2. I knew I needed to keep my game consistent, have confidence and play the best I could,” said Park, 21, of Tustin, Calif. “I plan to pursue golf after college and this is an opportunity to experience what it is like to compete at the highest level of women’s golf.”

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.
