Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft Reveals #GRgyle [Video]

LPGA pros Morgan Pressel and Nicole Castrale might not have quite arrived with a fashion suggestion revealed this morning, but they both embrace the reasons behind the red argyle that's popped up around Grand Rapids since May 9.

Those somewhat iconic red argyle socks have been showing up in greater Grand Rapids at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum, Rosa Parks Circle, at other downtown Grand Rapids locations and even the Tulip Time Festival last month in Holland.

The campaign is all tied to the inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft, which is teeing off Aug. 7 to 10 at Blythefield Country Club. Consider the red argyle campaign with the #GRgygle hashtag as Walker-based Meijer's nudge for a community-focused LPGA tournament with all proceeds to benefit Meijer's Simply Give food pantry-supporting and hunger-fighting program.

Tickets for the Meijer Classic, which will have a 144-player field vying for $1.5 million in prize money, went on sale today.
