We recently were fortunate to have an opportunity to witness some of the best women professional golfers of all time. The Legends Tour of the LPGA, hosted by the Omni Tucson National Golf Resort & Spa.
The festivities kicked off with a fund raiser event for the “Tucson Together Fund” followed the next day by a junior clinic benefiting the First Tee of Tucson and LPGA-USGA Girls Golf of Tucson prior to the Pro-am.
An evening of wine and hors d’ oeuvres with Rosie Jones, 2011 Solheim Cup Captain the following day concluded the Women’s Senior National Invitational.
This year’s champion Laurie Rinker carded a -1 under par round in difficult gusty winds on the Catalina course at Omni Tucson National. In hot pursuit was Rosie Jones before making bogey 5 on the final hole. A handful of others finishing runner-up was Tucson local Christa Johnson, Kris Tschetter, Barb Moxness and Tina Tombs.
Tournament host Cindy Rarick did a marvelous job coordinating with the Legends Tour and the Omni Tucson National providing another fun filled event for the ladies and the spectators alike.
