The Legends Championship Returns to French Lick Resort Aug. 19-21

Tickets available in early June with all proceeds benefitting Riley Hospital for Children

(FRENCH LICK, IN) – The Legends Tour will return to The Pete Dye Golf Course at French Lick Resort Properties this summer for the fourth annual Legends Championship presented by Old National Bank Aug. 19-21. Tickets will go on sale June 1 with all proceeds benefitting Riley Hospital for Children.

“We are honored to be able to continue supporting Riley Hospital for Children and help provide healing to the families who receive care during the more than 300,000 annual patient visits,” said Joe Vezzoso – Vice President of Resort Operations for French Lick Resort. “Through Resort Charity Events, French Lick Resort, and our many sponsors, The Legends Championship presented by Old National Bank has become a wonderful event to raise awareness and funding to help families and children in need across the state of Indiana.”

The Pete Dye Championship Course has played host not only to The Legends Tour, but also to the 2015 Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid. This year’s Legends Tour event will bring a field of 50 Legends division players and eight Legends Honors division players (age 63 and over) to compete in the 36-hole championship.

“It's a beautiful piece of property," said Michelle McGann, a seven-time LPGA Tour winner, referring to the dramatic site the course is situated on – one of the highest points in the state – offering panoramic views in all directions that stretch for 30-40 miles.

Nancy Scranton, who has won five times on The Legends Tour, agrees.

"I love the par-4 eleventh hole at French Lick because you're way up high on the tee box,” said Scranton, who grew up in nearby Illinois. "I don't normally hit a very high ball, but it makes me feel really long on that hole and you can come close to driving the green.”

The Legends Championship will offer a tournament purse of $325,000, awarding $37,700 to the champion. The Legends Honors event will compete for a separate purse.

The tournament will open with its official pro-am on Friday, Aug. 19, followed by the first round of play on Saturday, Aug. 20, and the championship round on Sunday, Aug. 21.

"The French Lick Resort, its supporting sponsors and the organizing committee for The Legends Championship have been so hospitable and gracious,” said Legends Tour CEO Jane Blalock, who will compete in the Legends Honors division. “The Legends are deeply grateful and look forward to competing in this signature championship once again in August."

Tickets will be $15 for adults, with youth 17 and under admitted free. Tickets will be valid for both rounds of the championship and all proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Riley Hospital for Children.
