Congratulations are in order for Mo Martin who won the 2014 Ricoh British Open last week. Her win was something out of the blue as the 31 year old went on to win her first ever tournament. This week though, the LPGA Tour is moving back to the United States and the State of Ohio for the Marathon Classic. The LPGA Marathon Classic 2014 will be the 18th out of the total 32 LPGA events that are stated to happen this year.

This year, the total purse for the Marathon Classic has been revised to $1.4 million. Although there are a total of 144 players on the field for the tourney, it happens to be one of the weakest fields of the calendar year. There will be a total of 23 players from the top 40 of the LPGA Priority List and 11 out of the top 20 players from the Rolex Rankings who will fight for victory this week. Michelle Wie, Stacy Lewis, Lexi Thompson, Paula Creamer, and Lydia Ko are among the favourites for the Marathon Classic 2014.
