Stacy Lewis, Natalie Gulbis, Morgan Pressel, Michelle Wie, and Juli Inkster join the field for the Kingsmill Championship

Kingsmill Championship Field Taking Shape

The Kingsmill Championship will be staged September 3-9 at Kingsmill Resort’s River Course. The top women golfers in the world will compete for the $1.3 million purse in this 72-hole, stroke play tournament. Tickets start as low as $25 and can be purchased online at www.thekingsmillchampionship.com. Kids 17 and under are admitted free with a ticketed adult. Five standout athletes announced today that they are headed to Williamsburg as the LPGA Tour makes its return for the first time since 2009.

Stacy Lewis, Natalie Gulbis, Morgan Pressel, Michelle Wie, and Juli Inkster have joined the field for the Kingsmill Championship at Kingsmill Resort, September 3-9, 2012.

Players already committed to compete include Paula Creamer, Lexi Thompson, and two-time winner at Kingsmill, Cristie Kerr.  

Arguably playing the best golf of anybody on the LPGA Tour, Stacy Lewis has soared up the Rolex World Rankings all the way to number two. Coming off a spectacular year in 2011 racking up 12 top-ten finishes, two second place finishes, and one major title win,Lewis is showing no signs of slowing down in 2012. Lewis has won two tournaments already this year, is currently the number one player on the 2012 LPGA Money List, and is the top-ranked American player.

Fan-favorite on the LPGA Tour, Natalie Gulbis, is currently playing in her 11th season on the tour. Gulbis earned a spot on the LPGA Tour in her first attempt in 2001 after finishing third in the LPGA Qualifying Tournament. The 2007 Evian Masters Champion has played on three victorious U.S. Solheim Cup teams (2005, 2007, and 2009).

Morgan Pressel turned professional at age 17 and is the youngest-ever winner of a modern LPGA major championship (2007 Kraft Nabisco Championship). The 23-year- old from Tampa, Florida is a three time U.S. Solheim Cup team member and is undefeated (3-0-0) in singles play in her appearances. Pressel has reached as high as fourth in the world rankings in her career and currently sits at number 30.

Michelle Wie made an early impact in the professional golf world, setting and still holding the record as the youngest player to make the cut in an LPGA event (13 years, 5 months, 17 days). By 2006, Wie had climbed to the third ranked female golfer in the world. Wie joined the LPGA Tour in 2009 and has won two titles (2009 Lorena Ochoa Invitational, and the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Open).

In her first full LPGA season in 1984, Juli Inkster took home Rookie of the Year honors after winning two major championships. Throughout her career, Inkster has won 31 tournaments on the LPGA Tour including seven major championships. Inkster is fifth on the LPGA career money list and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2000.

“We are ecstatic to announce the commitment of these five extraordinary athletes,” says Kingsmill Championship Tournament Director, Katherine Thigpen. “We are thrilled to be able to attract a field of this caliber as the LPGA Tour makes its return to Williamsburg for the first time since 2009. You can really sense the excitement around the community as we are now just two weeks away from teeing it up.”

The Kingsmill Championship will be staged September 3-9 at Kingsmill Resort’s River Course. The top women golfers in the world will compete for the $1.3 million purse in this 72-hole, stroke play tournament. Tickets start as low as $25 and can be purchased online at www.thekingsmillchampionship.com. Kids 17 and under are admitted free with a ticketed adult.
