Tournament week has arrived for the inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft.

The 20th stop on the LPGA Tour, the Meijer LPGA Classic is being played Thursday through Aug. 10 at Blythefield Country Club. Walker-based Meijer's nudge for a community-focused LPGA tournament is that all proceeds benefit Meijer's Simply Give food pantry-supporting and hunger-fighting program.

Nine of the top 10 LPGA pros are in the 144-player field, including Stacy Lewis, the No. 1 female golfer in the world; U.S. Women’s Open champion Michelle Wie; rookie superstar Lydia Ko; and veterans such as Paula Creamer and Lexi Thompson.

Tickets for the Meijer Classic, which has a $1.5 million purse, are still available. Pre-tournament activities start Monday.
