Prattville, Alabama welcomes the LPGA Tour this week for the final event before October’s Asian-Pacific swing. The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Senator Course hosts the Navistar LPGA Classic for the fifth year in a row and will feature a field of 144 players vying for a $195,000 first-place prize.
A group of 20 Symetra Tour members will be teeing it up in Alabama this week. Lacey Agnew, Izzy Beisiegel, Ashli Bunch, Jaclyn Burch, Jacqui Concolino, Laura Diaz, Kirby Dreher, Melissa Eaton, Veronica Felibert, Nicole Hage, Katy Harris, Jamie Hullett, Nicole Jeray, Hanna Kang, P.K. Kongkraphan, Min Seo Kwak, Mi Hyang Lee, Tzu-Chi Lin, Samantha Richdale and Candace Schepperle and will be current members playing in Prattville.
Mi Hyang Lee, a Symetra Tour and LPGA Tour rookie, is coming off her first-career victory at the Symetra Classic week in Charlotte, NC. The South Korea native broke back into the top-10 in the Volvik Race for the Card and currently sits at No. 4. Lee has had four top-10 and six top-20 finishes in 13 starts on the Symetra Tour and currently leads the Gaelle Truet Rookie of the Year standings. She has made four starts on the LPGA Tour this season in her rookie year and most recently made her first cut at the Kingsmill Championship where she T53. Lee said the made cut may not have seemed like a big deal, but it worked wonders for her confidence, something that she had been struggling with through a mid-season slump.
“The first two events I was lucky then I went through a mini stretch of a slump,” said Lee. “I picked up a lot of confidence from playing in Kingsmill, making my first cut in an LPGA Tour event. I made a great up-and-down on the last hole the second round of Kingsmill from the sand to make the cut on the number. It really boosted my confidence.”
