LPGA Kingsmill Championship returns to Williamsburg VA 2014

May 12-2014

The LPGA’s Kingsmill Championship returns to Williamsburg VA later  this week with a new presenting sponsor.

Play starts Thursday May 15 on the River Course at Kingsmill Resort with a field that features eight of the top 10 golfers in the Rolex world golf rankings, including defending champion Cristie Kerr and 17-year-old phenom Lydia Ko.

Cristie Kerr returns as the defending champion. Kerr has earned three of her 16 career LPGA victories at the resort’s River Course, as she also won the tournament in 2009 and 2005.

Kerr had her hands full with 2007 Kingsmill champion Suzann Pettersen last year, besting the Norwegian on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff after sinking a two-footer for par. The last seven champions have posted at least three rounds in the 60s en route to the winner’s circle, and this year should be no different.

Kerr will have to contend with the likes of Stacy Lewis, Lydia Ko, Paula Creamer, Lexi Thompson and Karrie Webb – who won the tournament in 2006 – among others. Se Ri Pak (2004) is another past Kingsmill champion in the field this week, so the player roster is loaded with talent once again at the $1.3 million event.

Golf Channel will be there to bring four rounds of coverage to fans not lucky enough to see it in person.

The Kingsmill Championship begins a four-week run for the LPGA that includes trips to Alabama, New Jersey and Ontario, and there is a heap of money up for grabs in the coming weeks. Ten events into the 2014 slate, LPGA players will begin looking to make moves in the standings as summer approaches, and it all begins this week.

The South Korean broadcast company JTBC has signed up as a partner this year and is expected to bolster the tournament’s international presence. JTBC reaches 21 million households in Korea, according to a Kingsmill release.

The tournament is booked at Kingsmill through 2017. This is the 11th event on this year’s LPGA schedule.
