The Kathy Whitworth Paris Championship will feature 3 WAPT champions, as they look to add another trophy to their collection. Julianne Alvarez is looking to secure her first win of the season, after a strong start in the spring. Alvarez qualified for the Women’s US Open earlier this year and will look to find some of her good play at a scorable course in Paris. Ginger Howard, a champion in 2021, finished just outside the top-5 in the PXG Race To Stage II this season. Howard has had plenty of strong finishes in the 2022 season and has qualified for Stage II later this year. Paris Golf and Country Club is one of the most scorable courses the ladies will play this year, so expect low scores throughout the week.
Action gets underway at 8:00 A.M. CT for all three days of play. A trophy presentation by the clubhouse will follow the final round of play. Attendance is free to the public.
