Dan Lombard arrived from Tampa, Fla. Alex Martinez flew in from Mexico City.
From here and there, far and wide, recreational golfers gathered Tuesday at the Links at Stoney Point to meet -- and play -- with 15 acclaimed LPGA golfers, many of whom compete on the Legends Tour.
Those LPGA Legends account for a total of 20 major victories.
The Legends Tour is the LPGA’s version of the PGA Champions Tour.
Hence, that was why the course was abuzz at Stoney Point, which is also home of this week’s Symetra Tour Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Women’s Health Classic.
“This is sweet,” Lombard said. “I’m so excited, I couldn’t sleep last night. I was up til 1 a.m. and I woke up at 6 a.m.”
Among the acclaimed golfers at Stoney Point on Tuesday were World Golf Hall of Famers Beth Daniel, Pat Bradley and Hollis Stacy. Bradley, who won 31 LPGA events, including six majors, and is the aunt of 2011 PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley, was certainly enjoying Tuesday.
