Official field set for the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women's Health Classic Junior Challenge Qualifier conducted by the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls' Golf Tour
Event champion receives sponsor exemption into 2017 Women's Health Classic, the premier event on the LPGA Symetra Tour, which will be played May 11-14 at the Links at Stoney Point.

In partnership with the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation, the LPGA Symetra Tour’s Women’s Health Classic and the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls' Golf Tour (PKBGT) are pleased to announce the official field for the Women’s Health Classic Junior Challenge Qualifier.

The qualifier, to be contested at the Links at Stoney Point in Greenwood, S.C., will feature 30 of the top junior girls ages 11-18 from across the East Coast.  The Junior Challenge participants earned their spot in the field through a series of six pre-qualification tournaments contested over the last two months.  The Series featured 152 players from 14 states.

The champion of this qualifier receives a sponsor exemption into the 2017 Women’s Health Classic — the premier event on the LPGA Symetra Tour — played May 11-14 at the Links at Stoney Point.  The Women’s Health Classic Junior Challenge represents the first east coast opportunity for a junior player to earn access to an LPGA professional event. 

Previously called the LPGA Futures Tour, the Symetra Tour is the official qualifying tour of the LPGA Tour. Known as “the Road to the LPGA,” the Symetra Tour has graduated a total of 117 women to the LPGA since 1999.

The first round begins Saturday, April 1 at 11:00 a.m. from the first tee.  The final round Sunday will begin at 9:00 a.m.  The trophy ceremony will take place at the scoreboard immediately following play around 3:00 p.m.  There is no admission for the Qualifier and spectators are welcomed to come out to watch the girls.

“The Links at Stoney Point is very excited about hosting the PKBGT Junior Challenge and promoting women’s golf,” said Jim Medford, chairman and owner of The Links at Stoney Point and the Women's Health Classic Tournament Director. “This series of events enhances our continued efforts to support and promote women's golf.”
