THOMPSONVILLE — Kueny opens defense of title
Laura Kueny opens defense of her Michigan Women's Open title today at Crystal Mountain Resort.
The Whitehall native and Michigan State alum shot a 5-under 211 to win by three strokes a year ago. It was her first professional win.
Kueny, 24, is currently playing her second full year on the Symetra Tour, the LPGA's official developmental tour.
Kueny will lead a field of 66 players in the three-day, 54-hole event — the 10th year it's been held at Crystal.
Three former champions are entered — Allison (Fouch) Duncan, Connie Ross and Suzanne Green-Roebuck. Former LPGA Tour players Sue Ertl and Cindy Figg Currier are in the field, too.
