May 12, 2022
PRIOR LAKE, Minn. – April 26, 2022 – The Legends of the LPGA, a tour comprised of some of the greatest names in women’s golf age 45+, returns to the Twin Cities area for the 2nd Annual Land O’Lakes Legends Classic presented by The Meadows at Mystic Lake. The Legends of the LPGA is the official senior tour of the LPGA, showcasing the talents of 15 LPGA and World Golf Hall of Fame members along with more than 100 former LPGA Tour stars -- 40 of whom are set to appear in the 18-hole pro-am, Aug. 11, and the 36-hole tournament proper, Aug. 12-13.
“The inaugural event in 2021 was a truly special celebration of women’s golf with the fans who came out to watch the Legends play,” said Michele Redman, a two-time LPGA Tour winner, former University of Minnesota head women's golf coach, and co-owner of the event with Jim Lehman, president of Medalist Management and a past president of the Minnesota Golf Association.
"It was a terrific field with Juli getting the win and so many of the LPGA’s best like Nancy (Lopez) and Rosie (Jones) competing. We’re thrilled to partner once again with Land O’Lakes and the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community to welcome an even stronger field to this year’s tournament in August and deliver another unforgettable golf experience to fans in the Twin Cities area,” she added.
Three-time Solheim Cup Captain Juli Inkster, who won 31 times on the LPGA Tour including seven majors and made last year’s Land O’Lakes Legends Classic her sixth win on the Legends of the LPGA Tour, will return to defend. Nancy Lopez, a 48-time LPGA Tour champ, the 1978 AP Female Athlete of the Year and World Golf Hall of Fame member, is slated to tee it up once again on The Meadows at Mystic Lake. Additions to the field will be announced in the coming weeks.
An 18-hole pro-am featuring teams of four amateurs and a Legend of the LPGA is set for Thursday, Aug. 11, the 36-hole tournament follows on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 12-13. Four top regional senior women amateurs will round out the field of 44.
