CLEVELAND, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In the first week of April at Mission Hills Country Club in beautiful Rancho Mirage, California, the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship (KNC) hosted more than 100 of the top women golfers from around the world. Lexi Thompson went head-to-head with Michelle Wie and came out with the three-shot victory. It was her first win of the season and her first major championship. Minjee Lee was the winner of the Low Amateur Tournament.
"It was such an honor to present Lexi with her Championship charm," says Heather Moore. "We designed the piece to help reflect on the outstanding achievement behind her tournament story."
Moore presented Thompson with the Championship charm on the green at the 18th hole after the winner made the traditional jump into Poppie's Pond.
Moore's company, Heather Moore Jewelry, was not only a 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship sponsor, but also was asked to design the 2014 Champions Charm and Low Amateur Charm. The charms in Moore's collection use a freehand stamping technique by using steel stamps milled in her own studio in Cleveland, Ohio. This gives her the ability to replicate things such as handwriting, family crests and logos such as The Kraft Nabisco Championship insignia adorned on each of the winners' charms.

About the Kraft Nabisco Championship
The Kraft Nabisco Championship is golf's first major and one of the LPGA Tour's most prestigious events. Founded in 1972 by David Foster and Dinah Shore, the Kraft Nabisco Championship earned the designation as a major tournament in 1983. Contested at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., since its inception, the Championship holds the distinction of being the second oldest golf tournament continuously held at the same course. For many, the event is most distinguished by one of golf's most beloved traditions: the champion's leap into Poppie's Pond, located adjacent to the 18th green. In 1988, the first champion's leap into Poppie's Pond was taken by Amy Alcott, and since has become one of the most anticipated and memorable traditions in golf.
