Janesville, Wisconsin. - Major champions and Hall of Fame members highlight the Janesville LPGA Senior Pro-Am field of past LPGA stars who will compete August 3-4, 2019 at the Janesville Country Club.
LPGA professionals aged 45 and older will compete in a 36-hole tournament alongside local amateurs.
The winning professional will receive entry into the Senior LPGA Championship this October at French Lick Resort in Indiana. Of the 30 participants, three have received one of golf’s highest honours – induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Pat Bradley (class of 1991) won 31 times on the LPGA Tour, including six major championship titles. In 1986, she won three of the four LPGA majors – the du Maurier Classic, Nabisco Dinah Shore and LPGA Championship. After her 30th victory in 1991, Bradley earned membership into the LPGA Tour’s prestigious Hall of Fame. She played on three U.S. Solheim Cup teams (1990, 1992, 1996) and captained the team in 2000. Bradley has one Legends Tour victory to her name – the 2005 BJ’s Charity Championship with Patty Sheehan.
Donna Caponi (class of 2001) won back-to-back U.S. Women’s Open titles in 1969 and 1970 and was also a two-time LPGA Championship winner (1979, 1981). She won 20 additional LPGA Tour events with 10 of her wins earned in 1980 and 1981. Caponi has also served as an analyst and commentator for CBS and Golf Channel and is a Legends Tour Honors Division player.
