LPGA Shootout a Resounding Success

The North Texas LPGA Shootout exceeded projected estimates by drawing approximately 76,000 attendees with an estimated impact of $10 million on the North Texas economy according to Kathy Wilkins, President, Nexus Club, event beneficiary.

“The City of Irving and the LPGA are a great match,” said Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne. “The feedback I received from the players was extremely positive and the city’s visitor and media exposure was outstanding. We definitely look forward to a return performance of this impressive event.”

Nexus’ Wilkins says plans are in the works to host the event annually.

The Nexus Club would like to congratulate the fans of North Texas on such an outstanding representation of our region,” said Wilkins. “The LPGA and the players are thrilled with the venue and the hospitality they received while they were in town. We would also like to thank the members of Las Colinas Country Club, the Nexus members and the volunteers for all of their support. We look forward to building an even bigger and better event each year going forward.”

The tournament is the Tour’s first in the North Texas region in more than 20 years. The $1.3 million North Texas LPGA Shootout hosted a full-field of 144 players, 93 of the top 100, playing 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition.

Inbee Park, the number one Rolex Rankings player in the world, won the inaugural North Texas LPGA Shootout, which came down to the last shot.
