LESLIE PARK TO HOST LPGA VOLVIK CHAMPIONSHIP AMATEUR PRE-QUALIFIER
ANN ARBOR–It is a classic nothing to lose and everything to gain sports drama.
The LPGA Volvik Championship Amateur Pre-Qualifier on Thursday, May 18 at Ann Arbor’s Leslie Park Golf Course will give female golfers a chance to swing with the pros.
“The LPGA pre-qualifying event is an excellent competition giving amateur golfers an opportunity to showcase their skills,” said LPGA Volvik Championship Tournament Director Keith Karbo. “We have the unique opportunity to allow amateur golfers a chance to qualify for a professional event.”
The two amateurs who card the lowest scores during the Pre-Qualifier will receive an automatic exemption directly into the Official LPGA Local Qualifier to be held at the Eagle Crest Golf Club in Ypsilanti on Monday, May 22. From the official qualifier, the top two finishers will join the 144 field for the second annual LPGA Volvik Championship at Travis Pointe Country Club, May 25-28.
All participants MUST hold amateur status. As defined by the USGA: an amateur golfer, whether she plays competitively or recreationally, is one who plays golf for the challenge it presents, not as a profession and not for financial gain.
The Amateur Pre-Qualifying competition is scheduled to begin at 10:30am on Thursday, May 18. Starting times will be sent to players via email by 5:00pm on Tuesday, May 16.
