The NWA Championship is bringing the best of the best in women’s golf to Northwest Arkansas this week.
The top ten players on the LPGA tour are competing in this year’s tournament and 46 of the top 50.
A number of Razorbacks will be on the links including Stacy Lewis and Gaby Lopez.
Tournament Director Jay Allen says while the home connection is strong, the LPGA tour extends far beyond Northwest Arkansas.
“Well the LPGA tour is truly a global tour, maybe the most global tour in the world, they’re here from all over the world, from Europe, from South America, from the United States, from Asia, all of the continents will be represented well,” Allen explained.
Allen says this is the strongest field of players in the history of the NWA Championship. The first round begins Friday.
