LPGA golfers wrap up practice rounds today in Prattville

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

The final two spots in the Navistar LPGA Classic will be decided at the RTJ Capitol Hill in Prattville today.  Those golfers will join 144 of the top female golfers in the world vying to become the 2012 champion.

Even though the tournament doesn't officially get underway until Thursday, there is still a full slate for these golfers and for volunteers at the tournament.

At 3 p.m., Christina Kim and Irene Cho will give golf lessons to two Wounded Warriors.  Other LPGA players may also participate.  This is a rain or shine event.

Practice rounds wrap up today.  Tournament director Jonathan Romeo explains why this opportunity to play on the course is important for the golfers.

"It's the first chance the golfers get to see the golf course this year.  We haven't made any drastic changes.  Robert Wingo and the staff have done a wonderful job getting the golf course ready.  It's the first time the pros get to see what we've got for the 2012 edition of the LPGA Navistar Classic.  So you'll see them playing their practice round today.  Obviously, a lot of them will stay on the range after the British open.  You'll probably have a lot of tired golfers who are here.  They'll be getting ready for everything that will start on Wednesday for the Pro Am.  And of course Thursday we tee it up for the first round."

A junior clinic had originally been scheduled for this morning, but because of the rainy forecast the clinic has been rescheduled for tomorrow.  At the clinic, school children from around the River Region will get take part in an interactive presentation from some golf pros and will get to meet some of the golfers in the tournament.
