Strongest Field on the LPGA Tour:
The stars of the LPGA Tour return to Priddis Greens Golf and Country Club in August. The event typically draws the strongest field on the LPGA Tour. Ninety-seven of the top 100 players on the Tour Money List are expected to challenge for the title and the $2.25M purse.
CP Has Heart Charity Campaign:
The host charity for this year’s event will be the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Between April 1 and August 28, 2016, CP will match all donations made towards pediatric cardiac care and research. In addition, a donation of $5,000 will be made for every birdie made by a player on the 18th hole. A special bleacher on the 18th green – the CP Fan Zone – will offer spectators a premium seating area for a $20 donation upgrade that CP will match.
This year’s goal is to raise more than $1.2M for heart health in the name of Canada’s National Women’s Open Championship.
Rising Young Stars of the LPGA Tour:
No sport has seen an explosion of young teenage talent the way the LPGA Tour has in recent years. World no. 1 Lydia Ko – who won two of her three Canadian Women’s Open titles in 2012 & 2013 as a 15/16 year old amateur – leads a pack of rising stars on the LPGA Tour and the defending champion will look to win her record fourth Canadian title in five years. At just 19 years of age, Ko has won 12 times on the LPGA Tour and leads a pack of rising stars that includes Americans Lexi Thompson, South Korean’s So Yeon Ryu and Inbee Park along with Canadian favourite Brooke Henderson.
