The Course: Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa

Canadians in the Field: 

Brooke Henderson: Finished T13 in last years tournament with four rounds in the 60’s. Henderson has made the cut in three out of the four events she has played this season and has not finished outside 10th in any events thus far. Henderson looks to be a strong contender in this weeks field.

Thursday Tee Time: 12:45

Alena Sharp: A resident of Phoenix, this hometown advantage should give Sharp a bit of an edge this week.  Since a T18 in the first event of the season in the Bahamas, Sharp has struggled not finishing higher than T56  in any of the last three events. Sharp missed the cut in last seasons tournament.

Thursday Tee Time: 7:22

Maude-Aimee Leblanc: Enters this event having only competed in one other LPGA Tour event this season, finishing with a T66. Leblanc missed the cut in last seasons tournament, though she will look to build off her second round 64 from last year.

Thursday Tee Time: 8:28

Anne-Catherine Tanguay: Finished eighth on the Symetra Tour money list last season to earn her LPGA Tour membership. Has yet to make a cut in the two events she has played this season.
