Notable pairings return to Midland Country Club, July 10 - 16
What: Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational tournament officials are pleased to announce notable pairings expected to appear in the 2022 event. The official LPGA Tour event will return to Midland Country Club, with two-player teams competing in both foursomes and four-ball in a 72-hole tournament with a $2.5 million purse.
Who: The Dow GLBI field consists of the tournament’s defending champions, Moriya and Ariya Jutanugarn as well as 2019 champions Jasmine Suwannapura and Cydney Clanton. Sadena Parks, winner of THE JOHN SHIPPEN National Golf Invitational presented by Rocket Mortgage, will team up with Anita Uwadia, and Savannah Grewal, winner of the Suzann Pettersen Amateur Qualifier presented by Frankenmuth Insurance, will team up with Annabella Pancake.
Other notable pairings include:
- Jessica Korda and Nelly Korda
- Lexi Thompson and Brittany Altomare
- Marina Alex and Karrie Webb
- Lizette Salas and Jennifer Kupcho
Also joining the field is Lauren Hartlage and her partner Brooke Matthews. Hartlage made her Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational debut in 2021 as an exemption into the field earned through the tournament’s qualifier event. An amateur at the time, Hartlage has since turned professional and will return to Midland this year as a full member of the LPGA Tour.
“We are very proud to be able to share Lauren’s story – she is just one example of the long-lasting impact we hope the Dow GLBI has on up-and-coming golfers,” said Dow GLBI Executive Director Chris Chandler. “As a tournament, we are committed to providing opportunities for the next generation of female golfers, and we look forward to cheering Lauren on for many years to come.”
