McCall's LPGA Classic, Former Tour Event

The McCall's LPGA Classic was a golf tournament on the LPGA Tour that was played a half-dozen times in the 1990s. It took place in Vermont. It was 72 holes for all but its last playing, when it was shortened to 54 holes.

First played: 1990

Last played: 1995

The inaugural McCall's ended ended in a sudden-death playoff, which Cathy Gerring won over Caroline Keggi with a birdie on first extra hole.

The event's 72-hole scoring record was 275, recorded by both Dana Lofland-Dormann and Carolyn Hill. Hill was one of three tournament champions whose only LPGA victory happened here. The other two were Melissa McNamara and Florence Descampe.

Hill has another distinction: When she won the 1994 McCall's LPGA, she did so in her 359th career start. That is the all-time LPGA record for most starts before getting your first win.

The title sponsor was McCall's magazine, which began publishing in 1873, but went out of business in 2002 seven years after it dropped its sponsorship of this tournament.

Also known as: The tournament was named Stratton Mountain LPGA Classic its first two years, and McCall's LPGA Classic the remainder of its run.
