Eighteen top legends of the LPGA tour come to Tucson April 23-24 for the debut of the Women's Senior National Invitational, to be held at the challenging Omni Tucson National Resort Catalina Course.

The two-day event, the sixth on The Legends Tour's calendar in 2010 and its third new event in nine months, includes LPGA and World Gold Hall of Famer Pat Bradley, 2011 U.S. Solheim Cup Captain Rosie Jones, and Tucson-area LPGA Legends Christa Johnson and Cindy Rarick. Rarick will serve as the tournament ambassador.

"I am excited and honored to have some of the greatest players in women's golf returning to Tucson for the Women's Senior National Invitational," Rarick said. "The Tucson community is thrilled to host these legends of women's golf and as ambassador, I am looking forward to having them enjoy my home course, the Omni Tucson National Resort and Spa."

The called the venue "gorgeous," and said the event "will provide great entertainment for spectators not only this year, but for years to come. In addition, The First Tee Program will receive a significant charitable contribution from the proceeds of the event."

Practice rounds are Friday, April 23. A Legends Pro-Am is on the Catalina Course at Omni Tucson National Resort on Saturday, April 23. An 18-hole Legends Shootout follows on Sunday, April 24.

"The efforts of Omni Tucson National Resort, The Legends Tour and The First Tee of Tucson have combined to create tremendous excitement in the community for women's professional golf's return to Tucson in this exciting inaugural event," said Dave Garcia, director of the Women's Senior National Invitational Tournament.
