Five-time LPGA winner Michelle Wie will headline the field at the second annual Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic on July 3-8 in Oneida.

Wie, 29, of Honolulu will be joined by world No. 2 Ariya Jutanugarn and her sister, Moriya, top-earning American Cristie Kerr, former world No. 1 Lydia Ko and Canadian star Brooke Henderson.

As previously announced, 13-year-old Alexa Pano will lead a trio of sponsor exemptions who will tee it up at Thornberry Creek at Oneida. Pano, an accomplished junior golfer, will be joined by former Texas Tech University player Gabby (Barker) Lemieux and Selanee Henderson, who is making her second appearance in the tournament.

“Final preparations are underway as we eagerly await the arrival of the world’s best golfers at next week’s Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic,” says tournament director Jon-Paul Genet. “Last year’s inaugural event made a great impact on the Green Bay community, and we look forward to welcoming back the LPGA’s approachable and fan-friendly athletes for another successful year.”
