- Team Kronos ambassadors will wear the Kronos logo throughout the 2019 and 2020 seasons as well as participate in corporate events and social media campaigns in support of the Kronos brand. LPGA golfers signed to Team Kronos are:
- Marina Alex ( Instagram, Twitter ), 28, has 17 Top 10-finishes in her LPGA career, including a breakthrough win at the 2018 Cambia Portland Classic thanks in part to firing a career-low 62 (-10) in round one. The Wayne, New Jersey-native and 2015 inductee into the Vanderbilt University Hall of Fame was a two-time SEC Player of the Year in college and has topped $2.3 million in career earnings. Alex currently sits 6 th in the Solheim Cup standings, 28 th in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings – where she’s the 5 th -ranked American in the world – and 40 th in the Race to the CME Globe.
- Brittany Altomare ( Instagram, Twitter ), 28, turned pro in 2014 after graduating from the University of Virginia as a four-time All-American and 2013 ACC Player of the Year. Altomare has five Top 10-finishes on the LPGA Tour, including runner-up results at both the 2018 Buick LPGA Shanghai and The Evian Championship in 2017, which is her best finish in a major. Hailing from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts and ranked in the top 50 worldwide with nearly $1.4 million in career earnings, Altomare is 11 th in the 2019 Solheim Cup standings and 38 th in the Race to the CME Globe.
- Megan Khang ( Instagram ), 21, is a true rising star on the LPGA Tour, having racked up 13 Top 10-finishes – including six in 2018 – since her 2016 rookie season, amassing more than $1.4 million in earnings. Currently ranked 8 th in the Solheim Cup, Khang is an eight-time U.S. Challenge Cup Junior Golf Foundation Player of the Year and helped Team USA win the 2015 Junior Solheim Cup as the only player to go 5-0. Khang was also the low amateur at the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open Championship. Born and raised in Rockland, Massachusetts, Khang’s parents fled Laos as children during the Vietnam War, and her mechanic-turned-golf-coach father – who taught her to swing a club at the age of 5 – remains her caddy today.
- Jaye Marie Green ( Instagram, Twitter ), 25, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida has four Top 10-finishes and 26 Top 25-finishes in her five-year LPGA career. Green, who turned pro out of high school, won the 2011 South Atlantic Amateur (Sally) Championship and was a member of the victorious 2011 U.S. Junior Solheim Cup team. In 2018, Green sank the third-most eagles on tour (11) and is currently 19 th in greens in regulation in the 2019 LPGA Tour season. She’s the first player to earn medalist honors twice at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament by winning in 2013 and 2016.
- The ANA Inspiration, an LPGA major tournament since 1983, can be seen on NBC’s Golf Channel on Thursday, April 4 and Friday, April 5 from 12:00–4:00 p.m. and 7:00–9:00 p.m. ET, with weekend rounds airing on Saturday and Sunday from 5:00–9:00 p.m. ET.
- These LPGA athletes join Team Kronos alongside PGA counterparts J.T. Poston, Andrew Putnam, Scott Stallings, Brendan Steele, and Peter Uihlein, who all will be teeing off at this week’s Valero Texas Open, where Steele was the 2011 champion.
- Like the Kronos GiveInspired corporate philanthropic initiative, LPGA and PGA golfers on Team Kronos are active in many charitable endeavors that support communities where they live and golf while also inspiring next-generation leaders.
