ShopRite extends tourney sponsorship until 2016
Galloway, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - The LPGA and the Wakefern Food Corporation announced on Thursday that ShopRite has extended its sponsorship of the ShopRite LPGA Classic through 2016.
This year marks the 20th year ShopRite has been the title sponsor of the event held on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.
"Wakefern has been a wonderful partner of the LPGA over the past two decades and has consistently put on one of the premiere events on our schedule," said LPGA Commissioner Michael Whan. "Our players love returning to the Jersey Shore each year and playing at such a first-class host club in Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club. We look forward to celebrating the 20th anniversary of their partnership and many more years."
This year's ShopRite LPGA Classic will take place May 30-June 1. It will mark the 16th year at Seaview. Karrie Webb closed with a 3-under 68 last year to rally and beat Shanshan Feng, who stumbled to a 75 in the final round.
