The Legends Tour – A Senior Women’s Golf Tour
If you are a fan of women’s golf, you’ll love The Legends Tour. It is actually one of the tours of the LPGA and features many of the women who made the LPGA what it is today. The Legends has been around now for 8 years and boasts of over 100 members. Included in that number are some of the greatest women golfers of all time and you can see them play on The Legends Tour today!
This tour features 9 World Golf and LPGA Hall of Fame members. The members of this tour have logged over 600 LPGA wins that include 55 major championships! These players have played for over $6 Million in Legends prize money and have been responsible for over $5 Million in charitable donations.
If you aren’t familiar with this tour, I’m sure you’ll be familiar with their names. Meet the current 103 Legends!
