Wednesday April 3, 2013Hedberg and Lendl Will Tee Off In First Round of LPGA's Kraft Nabisco Championship Tomorrow

Rancho Mirage, Calif.

Current Gator women’s golfers, senior Isabelle Lendl (Goshen, Conn.) and sophomore Camilla Hedberg (Sitges, Spain) will begin their first rounds of the LPGA’s Kraft Nabisco Championship tomorrow on the famous Dinah Shore Tournament Course at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

 

Earlier today, the tee times for tomorrow’s first round were released and both Hedberg and Lendl will begin their round on the first hole with Hedberg taking an early 7:18 a.m. (WST) tee time and is paired with Caroline Masson of Germany, while Lendl has the 1:30 p.m. (WST) tee time and is paired with Moriya Jutanugarn of Taiwan.

 

The Kraft Nabisco Championship is one of the now five major championships on the LPGA Tour, along with the Women’s U.S. Open, the Women’s British Open, The LPGA Championship and for the first time this year, The Evian Championships. The Kraft Nabisco is one of the oldest majors on tour as it has been considered a major tournament since 1983.

 

For both Hedberg and Lendl, this will be the first tournament either of them has ever teed it up against the pros of the LPGA Tour, although Hedberg has made some spot appearances on the Ladies’ European Tour (LET). Both made the field of the Kraft Nabisco Championship on sponsor exemption and will compete as amateurs along with a number of other college players.

 

Former Gator Sandra Gal (’08) will also be in the field this week as her tee time is set for 3:50 p.m. (EST) and will be paired with former No. 1-ranked Ai Miyazato of Japan.

 

Live scoring for the Kraft Nabisco Championship can be found on LPGA.com and live television coverage will be on the Golf Channel. First and second round television coverage will start at 12 p.m. and run through 3 p.m., then again from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.
