The LPGA’s new team event isn’t for professionals only.

The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational will allow an amateur duo to earn a sponsor's exemption and tee it up with the pros in Midland, Mich., July 17-20.

The tournament is hosting an amateur qualifier on June 17 at Bucks Run Golf Club in Mount Pleasant, Mich. It’s a 36-hole qualifier, with the first round played as alternate shot and the second round as better ball. Amateur women with a USGA handicap of 2 or better can apply as a team to entry. Thirty teams will be selected. The winning team earns a sponsor’s exemption into the LPGA event.
