DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA –The 108-player field for the Epson Tour Championship has been finalized by the Epson Tour. The “Road to the LPGA” closes out the season in the Sunshine state from October 6-9 at LPGA International on the Jones Course.
Individuals will compete in a 72-hole, stroke-play format for $250,000 and a winner’s share of $37,500. A cut will be made to the top 60 and ties after 36 holes. Admission for the tournament is free.
The twenty-first and final event of the season marks the first Tour Championship sponsored by Epson. In its first year as a partner, Epson has helped more women make their dreams a reality by lowering entry fees and increasing purse sizes, giving them experience in the world of professional golf and the best chance to succeed on the LPGA Tour.
“Our partnership with the LPGA presents a unique opportunity for Epson to empower future women leaders and entrepreneurs around the world,” said Global President of Epson, Yasunori Ogawa. “Epson is proud to support all the talented women golfers who competed on the Epson Tour in 2022. We would like to wish all the golfer’s good luck this week in the final tournament of the season – The Epson Tour Championship - as they race for the card and a chance to join the LPGA.”
Nine of the top-10 players will compete for this week’s title, as well as 15 champions from the 2022 season. The Epson Tour’s most recent winner, Celine Borge, will also tee it up following her first professional career victory at the Tuscaloosa Toyota Classic. Borge plans on sticking with her plan from last week – one shot at a time.
“I’m just going to try and stay focused on every shot [at the Epson Tour Championship],” said Borge. “I’ll try not to think too much.”
Other notable players competing this week are defending champion, Prima Thammaraks, 2019 champion, Laura Wearn and 2012 champion, Daniela Iacobelli.
