The official ticket launch was staged alongside the annual University of Washington vs Washington State “Apple Cup” football game on Friday, Nov. 27. As part of the festivities, LPGA Tour veteran and Golf Channel studio analyst Paige Mackenzie, a former All-American at the University of Washington, hit a precision shot at the Rainier Vista on the UW campus, winning one complimentary “Good Any Day” Flex Ticket for all in attendance at Husky Stadium.
In addition, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship made a $10,000 donation to the University of Washington’s women’s golf program.
Spectators at Sahalee will be part of a new era in golf history, with this being only the second year that a women's major championship is being run by the PGA of America, which operates the annual PGA Championship and bi-annual Ryder Cup competition. The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, held last June at Westchester Country Club in Harrison, N.Y., was won for a third consecutive year by Inbee Park.
Sahalee Country Club, site of the 1998 PGA Championship and the 2010 U.S. Senior Open, as well as the 2002 WGC-NEC Championship, becomes the second Washington state site to host a U.S. women’s major. In 1946, Spokane County Club hosted the inaugural U.S. Women’s Open.
The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship — a collaboration between the PGA of America, KPMG and the LPGA Tour — continues the rich tradition of the LPGA Championship. Broadcast in partnership with NBC and Golf Channel, the Championship offers a purse among the highest in women’s golf. It combines a world-class, annual major golf championship with a women’s leadership summit and an ongoing charitable initiative – all focused on the development, advancement and empowerment of women on and off the golf course.
