A month ahead of the tournament itself, the Manulife LPGA Classic has announced the commitments of some very popular players.
Those headed for the new tournament venue, the Whistle Bear Golf Club in Cambridge, Ontario, will include Stacy Lewis, Jennifer Kirby, Brooke Henderson, Lorie Kane, Michelle Wie, Lydia Ko and Brittany Lincicome will all compete for the 2015 title. This year’s tournament takes place on June 3-7.
Those players join the trio of past champions already announced as attending – Inbee Park, Brittany Lang, and Hee Young Park.
“The Manulife LPGA Classic continues to attract top players with five of the top ten ranked players already committed to compete this year including Lydia Ko, Inbee Park, Stacy Lewis, Brittany Lincicome and Michelle Wie,” said Tournament Director, Milaina Wright. “Our fans will be able to witness some of the most talented golfers in the world – right here in the Waterloo Region.”
“The field is looking strong with our player line up to date,” said Marianne Harrison, President and CEO Manulife Canada. “Stacy Lewis, currently ranked third in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings, returns along with fellow Canadians Jennifer Kirby, from Paris Ontario, and the legendary Lori Kane. We’re also looking forward to once again welcoming 17-year-old Brooke Henderson from Smiths Falls, Ontario, who is making headlines on the LPGA Tour with her strong performances at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic (3rd) and Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout (T13).”
