OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss women’s golfers Alison Hovatter and Kaitlin Voll are in the midst of play at the Judson Collegiate & Legends Pro-Am Challenge, and are enjoying their time at the unique event while playing with legendary players from the LPGA Tour.

Played from July 13-15 at the Country Club of Roswell (par 71 – 5,151 yards) in Roswell, Ga., Hovatter and Voll have played rounds with some of the best players in the history of the game. Hovatter fired an opening round 76, followed by an 80 Sunday. Voll carded a 78 Saturday and turned around Sunday with a strong 3-over-par 74.

With so many legendary players on the course, Hovatter and Voll have enjoyed their time playing with and getting to meet them.

Hovatter has played with Donna Copani, a World Golf Hall of Fame member and winner of 24 LPGA events, including four majors, Christa Johnson, who has won nine LPGA tournaments, including one major, and Marynell Meadors, a former head coach of the WNBA’s Atlanta Dram, and an assistant coach for the gold medal USA women’s Olympic basketball team.

“It was a treat to play with Donna Copani,” Hovatter said. “She is truly one of the classiest professionals I have ever played with. Christa Johnson hit the ball so pure, and my favorite person was Marynell Meadours. It was truly an experience I will never forget. These women have paved the way for my generation to have a better opportunity in sports. I’m blessed to have gotten to walk the fairways with them.”

Voll played with Lori West, a two-time winner on the LPGA Legends Tour.

“I loved playing with Lori West,” Voll said. “She is super energetic. I told her I loved playing with her because I can really learn a lot from watching them, and she said, ‘Well I’m learning a lot from watching you.’ I thought that was pretty cool.”

The Judson Collegiate will conclude Monday with Hovatter teeing off at 8:40 a.m. CT and Voll at 9:20 a.m. CT.
