The Year’s First Major

The year’s first major isn’t the Masters—it’s the LPGA’s Kraft Nabisco. This year’s defending Champion is Morgan Pressel, who was the youngest in LPGA History to win a major title at the age of 18 years 10 months and 9 days.

The purse for the tournament is $2 million. The winner will take home $300,000.

The Kraft Nabisco has a long and interesting history, extending back to 1972 and its days as a as a 54 hole event, known as the Colgate Dinah Shore Tournament.

For a little background on the history of the tournament, and Dinah Shore, read this post from last year.
