Meghan Stasi, one of the nation’s top-ranked amateurs and a seven-time winner of the Philadelphia Women’s Amateur, has been given a sponsor’s exemption to play in the ShopRite LPGA Classic beginning June 1 at Seaview in Galloway Township, N.J.

Stasi, the former Meghan Bolger, is a native of Voorhees, N.J., and starred at Eastern High School and Tulane. She now lives in Oakland Park, Fla.

Stasi, the nation’s No. 3 amateur in the Golfweek rankings, has won three U.S. Mid-Amateur Championships and was a member of the victorious U.S. team in the 2008 Curtis Cup at St. Andrews.

In January, she won the prestigious Jones/Doherty Championship in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

“It will be a thrill to play in front of a large gallery at the ShopRite LPGA Classic,” Stasi said in a tournament release. “And it gives two of my most devoted fans the opportunity to see me play, my parents, who are from Haddonfield, N.J.”

The tournament granted another sponsor’s exemption to Marina Alex, who was the 2010 and 2012 Southeastern Conference player of the year while competing for Vanderbilt. Alex is from Wayne, N.J.
