With the completion of the Monday qualifier today, the field is now solidified for the 2017 Manulife Classic. Play gets underway on Thursday.

The Whistle Bear Golf Club in Cambridge will host most of the best players in the world and the home country fans will have a lot to cheer about with 13 Canadians in the field.

The scope of the players includes four of the top six players in the Rolex World Rankings and last week’s Shoprite LPGA Classic winner, In-Kyung Kim.

Among the players competing for the $1.7 million purse will be the tournament’s three past champions and many other household names.

Six Canadians finished inside the top 9 at today’s Monday Qualifier but none could grab one of the top two spots which would have advanced them to the field. As a result, the field will continue to feature thirteen Canadian players.

They include: Brooke Henderson,Lorie Kane, Alena Sharp, Maude-Aimee Leblanc, Augusta James, Samantha Richdale, and Jennifer Ha. Added to the field by sponsor exemptions are Manulife Ladies Classic Award recipient, Grace St. Germain, along with Maddie Szeryk, Brittany Marchand, Vivian Tsui, Jaclyn Lee, and Manulife player ambassador, Jennifer Kirby.

“We’re proud to showcase a combination of the very best talents in Canadian golf,” said John Gaskin, Tournament Director. “Golf fans are sure to be treated to an unbelievable showcase of world-class golf.”
