June 1, 2012 at Hidden Valley Country Club 

The field of 20 Legends for the 2nd annual Patty Sheehan & Friends Pro-Am, an official LPGA Legends Tour event, includes four LPGA Hall of Famers – Amy Alcott, Pat Bradley, Hollis Stacy and Patty Sheehan. The tournament scheduled for June 1, 2012 returns to Hidden Valley Country Club, Reno, Nev., with proceeds benefiting the Patty Sheehan Foundation, supporting local women’s and children’s charities. The cost for a Pro-Am foursome is $4,000.

“The reason I chose the name ‘Patty Sheehan & Friends’ is because I had the desire to introduce my home community to my LPGA friends and vice versa,” Sheehan said. “The support we’ve received is beyond over whelming and the professionals who have signed on are true legends of golf, my mentors and friends. The way the field is taking shape, it’s going to be a great day of incredible golf. I can’t wait for June 1.”

Additional player commitments include: Cindy Figg Currier; Alicia Dibos; Heather Drew; Allison Finney; Cathy Johnston Forbes; Dawn Coe Jones; Cindy Miller; Lotta Neumann; Anne Marie Palli; Laurie Rinker; Kathy Robyn; Jan Stephenson; Kris Tschetter, and Sherri Turner. Three remaining LPGA player spots remain.

Patty Sheehan & Friends is an official Legends Tour of the LPGA event made possible by the Patty Sheehan Foundation. In 2011, the inaugural Patty Sheehan & Friends event boasted a field of 40 LPGA Legends. Christa Johnson captured the win with a 139 total shot over the two-day tournament and walked away with the $35,000 prize purse. Tournament charities including First Tee of Northern Nevada, Step 2 and CAAW each received a check for $5,000. In 2012, the Patty Sheehan Foundation will be the beneficiary supporting women and children charities in northern Nevada.
