LPGA Announce 2011 Tour Schedule

The Ladies Professional Golfers Association has announced its Tournament schedule.
There are 25 events on the schedule, 13 of which will be played in the United States, including a new event in Arizona.

The tournament to be held from March 18th-20th at the Wildfire Golf Club, Phoenix, will be to honour the LPGA founders and will therefore be called the LPGA Founders Cup. All the prize money will be donated to the LPGA Foundation that runs the LPGA-USGA girls golf program. The money and other points that would have been earnt will still be used towards the money lists and world rankings.

"The heart and soul of the LPGA is embodied by its gifted and engaged players, who to this day still embrace the same primary responsibility established by the LPGA's founders — to leave the tour better than how they found it," Commissioner Michael Whan said.

The Titleholders will once again be a feature of the Tour. It was last held in 1999, where it was won by Karrie Webb.

The 75 player field will be made up of the top three finishers (who have not already qualified) of the 25 events on the tour. It will be the conclusion of the season and will be held on November 20th in Orlando

The first event of the season will be on February 17th with the Honda LPGA, in Thailand. Seven Tournaments in total will be held in Asia.
