The Ladies Professional Golf Association, which most golfers know as the LPGA, is wrapping up the season. Of all the LPGA tour events in history, this year’s tour schedule has had the largest winning purse and most competitors of any other LPGA tour event schedule.
There are only three remaining LPGA tour events for the year:
- November 4 – 6: TOTO Japan Classic
- November 10 – 13: Citibanamex Lorena Ochoa Invitational
- November 17 – 20: CME Group Tour Championship
- November 30 – December 3: Qualifying tournament for next year’s LPGA stage III
This year’s CME Group Tour Championship will take place on another one of our great golf courses in South Florida, the Tiburon Golf Club – Gold Course in Naples, Florida.
The golfer who ranked up and won the most tournaments this year is none other than Ariya Jutanugarn, who will be defending five wins in next year’s LPGA tour events schedule.
More exciting news for those of us who are looking forward to next LPGA tour schedule, LPGA officials announced a new tournament addition to the LPGA tour events schedule next year: The Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. The announcement was made last November, the last month of the golfing calendar every year, when all golfing eyes are on the LPGA.
The Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic will not be gracing any golf courses in South Florida this year, but is set for July 3 – 9, 2017.
