Page Background

2016, but the LPGA Tour has an international

flavor every week. This season on the LPGA

Tour only one event, the Honda LPGAThailand,

was won by an American, Lexi Thompson.

The other main storyline on the LPGA Tour this

season is the success of young players, only one

event has been won by someone over the age

of 23. Lydia Ko, from New Zealand, is just 19

years old, and leads the money list with three

wins including the ANA Inspiration, a major

championship. Thailand’s Aryia Jutanugarn, at

20 years old, won three consecutive titles and

is second on the money list. Canadian-born,

Brooke Henderson, 18-years-old, is No. 3 on

the 2016 money list, has 10 top-10 finishes

and won her first major title at the KPMG PGA

Women’s Championship.

Volunteers Make Marathon Classic Successful

An event of this magnitude could not be

accomplished without the tireless efforts

of a host of dedicated people. Over 1,200

volunteers work to drive shuttle buses, marshal

holes, serve as scorekeepers and fill a host of

necessary jobs to make the Marathon Classic

successful. Many of these volunteers come

back year after year, with many having over

20-years’ experience.

When you ask why these dedicated individuals

return towork for free each year, most reply they

enjoy the friendship of the other volunteers,

plus they understand the contribution they

make to Toledo-area charities.

The volunteers make this event possible each

year and also directly impact the amount of

charitable dollars that are generated for area

children’s charities.

Tournament Director, Judd Silverman told us,

“The Marathon Classic could not exist without

our volunteers. We appreciate these tireless

individuals and their contribution that make

the tournament a success every year.”

Silverman’s dream of bringing a professional

golf tournament toToledo has worked out pretty

well. Millions of dollars have been generated

for children’s charities, area golf fans get to see

the best women golfers up close and personal

and Toledo garners a national spotlight to

highlight the community every year.
