Recce Bartelt, of Aurora, Illinois, won a spot in the 2018 KPMG Women's PGA Championship Pro-Am by making an incredible putt of 85 feet in a long putt competition held last weekend, Feb. 23-25, at the Chicago Golf Show. More than 2,500 attendees putted for a rare opportunity to play alongside the biggest stars on the LPGA Tour.
The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship will be held, June 26-July 1, at Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer. The Pro-Am will take place on Tuesday, June 27.
The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship – a collaboration between the PGA of America, KPMG and the LPGA Tour – returns to Chicago for the second time in as many years. Broadcast in partnership with NBC and Golf Channel, the Championship offers a purse among the highest in women’s golf. The event combines an annual major golf championship with the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit and an ongoing charitable initiative called the KPMG Future Leaders Program – all focused on the development, advancement, and empowerment of women on and off the golf course.
