ShopRite LPGA Classic Winners and History
First held in 1986, the ShopRite LPGA Classic was held annually from 1986 to 2006, and then again from 2010 to the present. The location has always been Atlantic City, although the venue has changed several times. The current course is the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.
In its first run, the tournament was played as a 54-hole event except for 1990, when it was a four-day, 72-hole event.
The tournament’s original incarnation was the Atlantic City LPGA Classic. In 1992, it acquired ShopRite as a sponsor and changed its name to the ShopRite LPGA Classic. In 2007 season, the LPGA swapped the traditional ShopRite Classic dates in early June for a new tournament, the Ginn Tribute Hosted by Annika. This didn’t sit well with the sponsors and ShopRite ended the tournament. In 2010, however, the ShopRite LPGA Classic returned as a three-day tournament.
In 2013, Acer, a Taiwanese computer hardware and electronics company, was added as a presenting sponsor.
Multiple winners of the event are Betsy King (1987, 1995, 2001), Annika Sörenstam (1998, 2002, 2005), and Juli Inkster (1986, 1988).
Julie Inkster was the first winner of the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
