Kane, a native of Charlottetown, recorded a T41 finish at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic in 2013.

Sharp is still searching for her first LPGA Tour victory, and none would be bigger for the Hamilton native than the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic title.

Kim recorded four top-10 finishes in 2012 on the Symetra Tour. She ranked third in birdies (139) and fourth in rounds under par (21).

Hee Young Park of South Korea is the defending Manulife Financial LPGA Classic champion.
