The Defending Champ Is Unavailable

Jin Young Ko is still out, nursing her injured wrist. But that doesn't mean there's not a stacked field at the Ascendant LPGA Benefiting Volunteers of America.

Defending champion Jin Young Ko

Yes, last year this was the Volunteers of America Classic. But it has picked up a new sponsor, Ascendant National Title, a Cypress Ascendant Company, who is partnering with the Volunteers of America. The result is — among other things — a $200,000 increase in the purse.

Despite Ko's absence, six of the Rolex Top10 are in the field:

  • Nelly Korda
  • Atthaya Thitikul
  • Lydia Ko
  • Brooke Henderson
  • Lexi Thompson
  • Nasa Hataoka

Add in past winners and such, and you've got a pretty strong field.

GC's live coverage begins Thursday at 12:30pm ET. While the sponsor is new, the track is not — Old American Golf Club, located at The Colony TX, is celebrating its fifth anniversary as the host site. Golf Magazine named it the #5 ’Best Public Golf Course’ in Texas, so we should see some good golf out of the gals.
