Ann Arbor – The official commitment list for next week’s inaugural LPGA Volvik Championship has been released, and nine of the top 10 money winners this season will be at Travis Pointe Country Club.

In addition to Lydia Ko, the top-ranked player in the world, 23 of the top 30 money winners on the LPGA Tour this season will be playing, including Lexi Thompson, Paula Creamer, Michelle Wie, Brittany Lincicome, Inbee Park and Christie Kerr.

“We're very excited about the field that will be joining us at the inaugural Volvik Championship,” LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said. “This field showcases some of the best athletes and role models our sport has to offer and we're looking forward to a great week in Ann Arbor.”

The 72-hole tournament begins Thursday and the field is cut in half after the second round. The final two rounds are May 28-29 for the $1.3 million event.

Seven of the 12 players from last year’s U.S. Solheim Cup team are in the field, the notable absences being Stacy Lewis, Morgan Pressel, Gerina Piller, Allison Lee and Lizette Salas.

“When I saw the list players we will have for our inaugural tournament, I was thrilled,” tournament director Keith Karbo said. “Now, Ann Arbor is now set to have a world-class event with world-class golfers.”
