Team golf will be around for a while on the LPGA, with the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational announcing an extension through 2029. The announcement comes as 72 two-person teams will compete this week for a $2.5 million purse.

The event debuted at Midland Country Club in 2019 and since then, the Dow GLBI has donated more than $1 million to local charities and organizations. And while partnering annually with 250 local companies, the event is estimated to have brought more than $25 million in economic impact to the Great Lakes Bay Region.

Sisters Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn won last year’s edition.

“As we celebrate our 125th Anniversary, I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off this year’s event and look ahead to the future than by sharing the news of Dow’s continued commitment to the Great Lakes Bay Region and to the LPGA Tour,” said Jim Fitterling, Dow Chairman and CEO. “Our partnership with the LPGA Tour continues to be a perfect platform for us to positively impact our region while showcasing our efforts in sustainability and inclusion as well as our customer-centric approach to doing business.

LPGA and World Golf Hall of Famers Annika Sorenstam and Karrie Webb will both compete in this year’s contest, with Sorenstam partnering with fellow Swede Madelene Sagstrom and Webb with Marina Alex.
