The 2016 LOTTE Championship Presented by Hershey swings into West Oahu April 10-16 for its fifth annual event featuring a star-studded field of marquee pros who grace the world stage of ladies’ professional golf. Last year Hershey, the largest chocolate manufacturer in North America, sweetened its involvement in the tournament as the new presenting sponsor and returns again this year.
The 2015 LOTTE Championship presented by Hershey delivered a dramatic finish! Sei Young Kim holed out her second shot, an 8-iron from 154 yards, on the first playoff hole to defeat Rolex Rankings No. 3 Inbee Park and claim her second-career LPGA victory. The 22-year-old LPGA rookie performed the champion's victory hula then collected her $270,000 winner's check. She became the first South Korean winner in the tournament's four-year history.
