From Newsroom/ Meijer:
The 2021 Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give will draw the world's best golfers to Grand Rapids once again with early commitments from top LPGA players, including defending champion Brooke Henderson. Former champions Lexi Thompson, Sei Young Kim and Mirim Lee will join Henderson in the field, alongside the other big names on tour.
The 2021 Meijer LPGA Classic will host a full field of 144 of the best women golfers for 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition. They will be competing on Blythefield County Club's new course, which was recently renovated to include a new practice facility, increased distance off the tee and restructured bunker and fairways. The greens have returned to the original sizes and contours from 1928 when the course first opened.
Proceeds from the tournament will once again benefit the Meijer Simply Give program that restocks the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest. Read more
From the Detroit News:
"The Meijer's always a highlight on the schedule," Katherine Kirk, an LPGA Tour veteran from Australia, said recently. "I think folks up in Michigan, maybe because the golf season's so short, they really get behind it. The crowds up there appreciate good golf.
"We're just looking forward to a great week of golf."
