The Legends of Women’s Golf and Hall of Fame golfers at Kraft Nabisco

Story and Photos by Pat Krause

The Kraft Nabisco Championship had a new tournament this year. The Fresh and Easy Kraft Foods Legacy Junior Challenge gave 18 young women a shot at playing in the KNC with the Pro Golfers. The Legends of Women’s Golf and Hall of Fame golfers played with these junior women on Tuesday. They played the Arnold Palmer Course at Mission Hills Country Club.

There were 4 players from the Coachella Valley trying to find a spot on the KNC tournament. Kimmy Hill from Palm Desert, Raychelle Santos from La Quinta, Cha Cha Wilhoite and Allie Zech both from Palm Desert were in the group of 18 juniors. The other players come from schools all over southern California. Each of these teen girls have been competing all thru high school and have won many honors in the sport.

Alison Lee from Valencia won the tournament with a 4 under for the day. She recently won the Sorenstam Invitational for 2012. Alison had been a team member of the Junior Solheim Cup and the Junior Ryder Cup. She is a golfer that will be one to watch in future LPGA and college tournaments.

Legends in golf included women we have followed at this tournament for many years. Amy Alcott, Jane Blalock, Pat Bradley, Donna Caponi, JoAnn Carner, Beth Daniel, Rosie Jones, Betsy King, Nancy Lopez, Meg Mallon, Patricia Meunier-Lebouc, Lisalotte Neumann, Sandra Palmer, Nancy Scranton, Patty Sheehan, Hollis Stacy, Jan Stephenson and Kathy Whitworth each played with a junior.

Fresh and Easy and Kraft Foods put this special tournament together with the help of Amy Alcott. What a great way to bring these legends together where they have all made their mark in golf. Several are still playing competitive golf on the tour.
