The field of 20 Legends for the 2nd annual Patty Sheehan & Friends Pro-Am, an official LPGA Legends Tour event, includes four LPGA Hall of Famers – Amy Alcott, Pat Bradley, Hollis Stacy and Patty Sheehan. The tournament scheduled for June 1, 2012 returns to Hidden Valley Country Club, Reno, Nev., with proceeds benefitting the Patty Sheehan Foundation, supporting local women’s and children’s charities. The cost for a Pro-Am foursome is $4,000.
“The reason I chose the name ‘Patty Sheehan & Friends’ is because I had the desire to introduce my home community to my LPGA friends and vice versa,” Sheehan said. “The support we’ve received is beyond over whelming and the professionals who have signed on are true legends of golf, my mentors and friends. The way the field is taking shape, it’s going to be a great day of incredible golf. I can’t wait for June 1.”
