The developmental tour for the LPGA, the Symetra Tour, is in Kansas this week for the playing of the Garden City Charity Classic. Tournament play begins Friday.

Eleven Canadians are in the the field at Buffalo Dunes GC this week and one member, who also happens to be an LPGA winner this season, is shedding her clubs and caddying for her sister this week.

Fresh off a t-25 finish at the Evian Championship, Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ontario will caddy for older sister Brittany this week.  Brittany was on the bag for Brooke in France for that last LPGA major of the season.

The Tour confirmed that in a tweet on Wednesday.

 

Also in the field is Augusta James of Bath, Ontario, currently sitting at the #8 position on the Volvik Race For The Card.  If she can maintain a spot within the top 10 of the money list by the end of the season (there are three more events after this one) she will earn a spot on the LPGA TOUR for 2016.

Maude-Aimee Leblanc of Sherbrooke, Quebec is currently 12th on the money list and also playing in Kansas.

Joining Brittany Henderson, Augusta James, and Maude-Aimee Leblanc as Canadians in the field this week on the Symetra Tour are:

Jessica Wallace, Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Lisa Meldrum, Nicole Zhang, Sara-Maude Juneau, Samantha Richdale, Nicole Vandermade, and Taylor Schmidt.
