Historic French Lick Resort in southern Indiana announces as the presenting partner of the upcoming Legends Championship, which will be held Sept. 23-29.
The tournament will feature LPGA legends such as Nancy Lopez, Pat Bradley, Jan Stephenson and Betsy King. The week-long celebration of women's golf will feature a variety of golf events, with proceeds from the tournament benefiting the American Heart Association.
The history of women's golf at French Lick dates back to 1957 where Louise Suggs captured the French Lick Women's Open on the historic Donald Ross course. A few years later the LPGA Championship was also brought to the historic site. In 1959 Betsy Rawls won the LPGA major followed by the legendary Mickey Wright winning the title in 1960 also held on the Ross course. In 2013, the history will continue not only with the elite and historic competition, but also with creation of a new LPGA Legends Hall of Fame.
