ROSWELL, Ga. – Six honorees from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Hall of Fame and the World Golf Hall of Fame are confirmed for the fourth annual Judson Collegiate & Legends Pro-Am Challenge presented by AT&T which takes place June 25-29 at the Country Club of Roswell. This year’s event features a new two-day pro-am format for amateurs to play with the Legends.
The Judson Collegiate & Legends Pro-Am Challenge presented by AT&T brings together players from The Legends Tour, the “Official Senior Tour of the LPGA," and 60 of the top female college players from around the country. Following the two-day pro-am, there will be three days of stroke-play competition for the collegians. Co-hosts for the event are Rosie Jones, 13-time LPGA and seven-time Legends Tour champion, and Lauren Judson, who played golf at University of Southern Mississippi and co-founded the JCI Foundation with her brother Dean to honor the loss of their parents who perished in a plane accident in 2010.
“It’s tremendously rewarding to see the future stars of women’s golf compete alongside the Legends of women’s golf. All of the Legends players are proud to serve as mentors for these young collegians, and eager to help grow the sport we love so much. From golf competitions to the Women’s Leadership Conference, it has become the biggest week of the year for the JCI Foundation to continue the legacy of the Judson family,” Rosie Jones said. Jones is a co-founder of the Judson Collegiate & Legends Pro-Am Challenge presented by AT&T.
LPGA Hall of Fame and World Golf Hall of Fame members Amy Alcott, Pat Bradley, Betsy King, Nancy Lopez, Hollis Stacy and Kathy Whitworth are a few of the 23 Legends Tour golf professionals who have been confirmed to tee it up with amateurs and collegians in Roswell.
All teams will be comprised of three amateurs, one LPGA Legend and one collegiate player. The Legends Tour and collegiate players compete as a team in a Best Ball competition within the Team Shamble format.
The event is managed by the JCI Foundation, which honors the memory of former Roswell residents, Jim and Beth Judson, who perished in an airplane accident in 2010. The JCI Foundation’s mission is to support non-profit agencies that help young women achieve greatness in their lives through positive mentorship, education, and sport, enabling them to build a lifetime of fulfillment.
