STUDIO CITY, Calif., Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Twenty top Southern California female junior golfers will be paired with LPGA legends for an inspirational round of golf Tuesday, March 27, as part of the Kraft Nabisco Championship week at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage. Hosted by Amy Alcott, a member of the Southern California Golf Association, LPGA Tour and World Golf Halls of Fame, the fresh&easy-Kraft Foods Legacy Junior Challenge will reward the junior low amateur at the event a sponsor's invitation to play in the 2012 Kraft Nabisco Championship, one of the LPGA Tour's four major championships, set to be held March 29-April 1.

"Partnering with fresh&easy, Kraft Foods and the Kraft Nabisco Championship is an incredible opportunity for us, but more importantly, it is a chance for us to create more opportunities for girls in golf," said SCGA Foundation Executive Director Kevin Gigax.  "The Junior Challenge will showcase the best junior girls in Southern California and will also inspire many more girls to pursue their dreams in golf."

"We are honored to celebrate the incredibly rich history of women's golf at the Kraft Nabisco Championship while also providing an incredible opportunity for young female golfers to play with their idols and the game's best," said Tim Mason, CEO of Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market.

The 20 Southland juniors participating in the fresh&easy-Kraft Foods Legacy Junior Challenge will be chosen by a selection committee, led by the SCGA Foundation, which will also supply tournament administration support during the Tuesday qualifier. The event will be played on the Arnold Palmer Course.
