The field is set for the LPGA Volvik Championship, with the game’s top stars making their first playing appearance in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The list includes nine of the top ten, and 23 of the top 30 money winners on the LPGA tour.

“We’re very excited about the field that will be joining us at the inaugural Volvik Championship,” said LPGA Commissioner Michael Whan. “This field showcases some of the best athletes and role models our sport has to offer, and we’re looking forward to a great week in Ann Arbor.”

Top ten players include: Lydia Ko, Michele Wie, Lexi Thompson, Paula Creamer, Inbee Park, Christie Kerr and Brittany Lincicome.

“When I saw the list players we will have for our inaugural tournament, I was thrilled,” said LPGA Volvik Championship Tournament Director Keith Karbo. “Now, Ann Arbor is set to have a world class event with world class golfers.”

The LPGA Volvik Championship tournament week starts Monday, May 23 with Tour practice at Travis Pointe Country Club and the LPGA Qualifier at Eagle Crest Golf Club in Ypsilanti (Two players from the qualifier will be added to the tournament field.)

Saline native Sarah Hoffman and 15-year-old Korean amateur champion Ayean Cho will fill the exemption spots.

Practice continues on Tuesday, May 24 with the Pro-Am played on Wednesday, May 25. The 72-hole LPGA Volvik Championship tournament competition starts Thursday, May 26 and runs through Sunday, May 29.

All active and retired military veterans will receive complimentary tickets for themselves and a friend along with complimentary admission to the DTE Energy sponsored Military Chalet on the ninth hole. The Detroit-based utility is the “military appreciation sponsor” and will underwrite the cost of free admission for U.S. military veterans and active duty personnel during the May 23-29 LPGA Tour event.
