Leigh Klasse, a Surprise resident and member of the Briarwood Country Club in Sun City West, will play in the Minnesota LPGA Legends Tournament Aug. 5-7 at the Meadows at Mystic Lake course in Prior Lake.
Women’s pro golf will return to Minnesota for an event in which three-time major champion Nancy Lopez and other World Golf Hall of Famers are expected to compete.
Organizers call the Land O’Lakes Legend Classic a “celebration of women’s golf” from junior to senior in a state that has produced three U.S. Women’s Open champions.
Along with Lopez, other golfers include Golf Hall of Famers Juli Inkster, Pat Bradley, Patty Sheehan and Jan Stephenson.
Other Minnesota pros and top amateurs such as Alissa Herron, Betsy Aldrich and Claudia Pilot will play as well.
