Kingsmill Championship Preview

The Kingsmill Championship Presented by JTBC will be playing from May 14 thru 17 in Williamsburg, Virginia.

This time it will be Lizette Salas who defends her title won in 2014. Salas managed to win with a total of 13-under par; Sarah Jane Smith, Yani Tseng and Lexi Thompson were her nearest competitors with 9-under par. Lizette’s title last year meant her first career victory and the first event without her parents following her rounds.

American player Cristie Kerr has won the event three times and will also be one of the favorites for this week after finishing 2nd at the 2015 Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout. Another past champion on the field for this week is Suzann Pettersen, who is ready to make her comeback after missing some tournaments due to a shoulder injury.

After the Monday Qualifier Megan Khang (68) and Kristi O’Brien (72) complete the field for the Kingsmill Championship.
