For the second consecutive year, former University of Cincinnati golfer Hillery Wilson Sence, a Hudson graduate, is set to play in the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
The major tournament is scheduled to take place June 29 to July 2 at the Olympia Field Country Club in Olympia Fields, Ill.
Sence, 31, qualified for the tournament after tying for fifth at the 2016 LPGA T&CP National Championship at Reunion Resort in Kissimmee, Fla.
With the top eight finishers earning a KPMG qualifying spot, Sence carded a three-round, even-par 216, including a final round 71.
In this year's KPMG, more than 150 golfers will compete with the top 70 making the cut for rounds three and four.
With 72 holes of golf spread over four days, the winnings' purse is $3.5 million.
The 6,588-yard Olympia Fields course will play at a par of 71. The tournament was started in 1955 and is one of the LPGA Tour’s five majors.
Play at the PGA Championship will be broadcast live on the Golf Channel June 29 and 30 and on NBC July 1 and 2.
