Kingsmill attendance expected to top 60K for first time in 2 years

If the dry weather holds up, LPGA Kingsmill Championship attendance should exceed 60,000 for the first time since 2014, according to tournament director Matthew Schulze.

Schulze said Thursday attendance could even rise beyond 65,000. The last two years it has hovered around 55,000 because of storms and rain.

"The thing I kept hearing from people was there was a lot more people here on Thursday than we've seen in a long time," Schulz said, "but we haven't had a good stretch of weather for four days in a long time."

Scattered showers are in the forecast for Saturday with temperatures expected to drop about 15 degrees after sun scorched the field...
