Making a statement about its commitment to women’s golf, PXG is stepping up as the title tournament series for women professional players will take place at World Golf Village October 25-November 5, 2021. Due to the popularity of this event it is being posted early on "Around Town With Ms. "V" so that patrons may plan ahead to attend. COVID protocol may change by the time that this venue is scheduled to take place. The PXG Women’s Match Play Championship will feature 64 female professionals who are pursuing their dream of playing on the LPGA Tour. The golfers will battle it out over two weeks in two separate, but connected tournaments. The first week will feature a 54-hole stroke-play format on the King & Bear course, which will also seed the second week’s event, a 64-woman match play championship at Slammer & Squire. There will be no cut in the stroke-play event and all players will advance to the match play tournament. Each tournament will have its own prize purse and the winner of the match play event will also earn the title PXG Women’s Match Play Champion. In addition to the cash prize, the champion will receive the opportunity for a tour-caliber full bag fitting and equipment from PXG.
As a Founding Partner and Official Automotive Partner, Murgado Automotive Group will host several events at its dealership, including a VIP/ Media Night and volunteer training. They will host a Player Party during the tournament and adorn the course with several of its vehicle models. They will also be offering vehicles for hole in one prizes on several golf holes, including the Challenge Hole at the World Golf Hall of Fame as a fundraiser for INK!.
The PXG Women’s Match Championship is also a fundraiser for Investing in Kids (INK!). The INK! Charity Pro-am presented by Davidson Realty, Inc. is slated for October 25 on the King & Bear course and will feature teams of one professional player paired with three amateurs. Sherry and Jim Davidson, owners of the local development and real estate brokerage bearing their name were the original land developers of World Golf Village and have a special tie to the community and to INK!, for which Mrs. Davidson serves on its Board of Directors. The night before the Charity Pro-am will be a Meet the Players Pairings Party with a silent and live auction. The PXG Women’s Match Play Championship will also feature junior clinics and other community involvement activities for the players, who will be in the area for some 10-12 days.
