Lotte is the fifth largest conglomerate in South Korea, with its reach well into neighboring countries. The Lotte Championship presented by Hershey will be back in Hawaii from April 9 to 15. Top LPGA golfers will be at the Ko Olina Golf Club in Kapolei for the four-day tournament with a field of 144 players. The defending champion is Minjee Lee, who shot a 64 in the last round to win by one stroke last year. Hawaii’s Michelle Wie won the tournament in 2014.
This will be the sixth year of the tournament, which started in 2012 when Ai Miyazato won. Admission is free Sunday through Tuesday for qualifying and practice rounds and the Pro-Am event. Wednesday is the first round of the tournament, and daily admission is $10 or $25 for the week. Click here for more information.
