Navistar LPGA coming back in 2010

PRATTVILLE, AL. - The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and the Navistar LPGA Classic jointly announce an extension for the LPGA's annual Tour stop in Prattville, Ala.  The event, which is in its third year, will be staged in 2010 at the Senator Course at the Capitol Hill location on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Prattville.

In the October 2008 issue of Golf World, readers voted Capitol Hill Golf Course the number two public course in the country. The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National was ranked number one.

"The Navistar LPGA Classic has been a great success for us," said Dan Ustian, chairman, president and CEO of Navistar International Corporation. "It has given us an opportunity to strengthen our brand awareness, give back to a community where we do business and deepen relationships with our key customers, dealers, suppliers and business partners."

"Navistar has been a great partner for us for three years now," said Dr. David G. Bronner, CEO of the Retirement Systems of Alabama. "We are extremely proud that this international company has an Alabama presence with its diesel engine assembly plant in Huntsville, and that we have the pleasure of working with Dan and his team again next year."

"We are pleased that the Navistar LPGA Classic will remain a stop on our Tour," said Marty Evans, acting LPGA commissioner.  "The visions of Dr. Bronner and Dan Ustian combined with the passion demonstrated by their teams and the community have resulted in a tournament that LPGA players and fans alike now count among their favorites. We look forward to watching the 2009 tournament this week and plan to produce another great event next year."

The Navistar LPGA Classic was first held in 2007.  Maria Hjorth won the inaugural title and Lorena Ochoa is the current defending champion.  The 2009 tournament gets underway tomorrow with the first round featuring 144 of the world's best female golfers. Golf Channel will televise all four rounds from 7:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. central.

The dates for the 2010 Navistar LPGA Classic will be announced in the near future, and the entire 2010 LPGA Schedule will be announced at the season-ending LPGA Tour Championship in Houston.
