The Media Blog needs to cover the LPGA debut for Amy Anderson, in my opinion. The NDSU graduate will make her tour debut this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic at the Ocean Club golf course in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
She earned her tour card in her first try at the LPGA Qualifying School with the third and final stage in December. The 108-player field for the Pure Silk tournament includes 11 major championship winners with the $1.3 million purse having a winner’s share of $195,000. The Golf Channel will show 10 hours of live coverage starting Thursday and Friday from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 2-4 p.m.
Paradise Island is located almost 200 miles southeast of Miami. Guessing the weather is a bit better there than at her home course of Oxbow Country Club this week.
