Road to the #NWAChampionship
About Road to #NWAChampionship
The Road to the #NWAChampionship program began in 2015 as a partnership between the University of Arkansas Women’s Golf Team and the LPGA tournament to guarantee the best performing student-athlete on the team a Sponsor’s Exemption in the professional event. In addition, two qualifying spots are reserved for the next best performing Razorback athletes in the tournament’s qualifier round.
The Road to the #NWAChampionship began in an effort to formalize the process of selection for the sponsor’s exemption and qualifier spots that historically have been given to Razorback athletes. Since its inception many Razorback players including Gaby Lopez, Maria Fassi, Kaylee Benton and Dylan Kim have participated in the #NWAChampionship for a chance to test their game again the best female golfers in the world.
New in 2022, General Mills will become the presenting sponsor of the program.
