Lindsey McPherson, of Michigan State University, and Grace Choi, of the University of Michigan, will compete alongside the best female golfers in the world.
“We are pleased to invite Lindsey and Grace to play in their first LPGA Tour event,” Meijer President J.K. Symancyk said. “We hope that by providing this opportunity, we’re helping them to grow in their careers if they choose to join the professional ranks. As a company focused on our community, we are also very excited to bring local talent to the field of professionals.”
McPherson, a Flushing, Mich. native, started playing golf competitively at age 15, and is entering her senior year at MSU after competing in a career-high seven tournaments this past season. She recently tied a career-best ninth at the Big Ten Championships to help lead the Spartans to their third Big Ten title in four years.
Choi, who will be a sophomore at U-M in the fall, had a stellar performance on the golf team this past year. She was presented the team award for low scoring average and was also named Big Ten Golfer of the Week this past March. She ended the season averaging 75.64 strokes per round, which was a U-M freshman record.
