Pressel Receives Sponsors Invite for 06 Safeway


Tournament Golf Foundation Inc., (TGFI), the owners and organizers of the Safeway International Presented by Coca-Cola, recently announced that amateur stalwart Morgan Pressel has accepted a sponsor's exemption to compete in the 2006 event.
Pressel, who tied for second at the 2005 U.S. Women's Open conducted by the USGA, is 17 and will also compete in the upcoming Nov. 30-Dec. 1 LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament in Daytona Beach, Fla., where she will try to earn her Tour card for 2006.
However, even if she earns a Tour card, she will not be eligible to compete as a member of the LPGA until she turns 18 later in the year.
