Competitive golf is returning to the UK this week with the Rose Ladies Series and now the LPGA Tour has announced that it won't be far behind.
The ladies tour announced that it will resume its 2020 season with back-to-back events in Northwest Ohio after it had to cancel a number of events due to the coronavirus outbreak.
First up on July 31 will be the three-day Drive On Championship at Inverness Club, Toledo.
Then, the Marathon LPGA Classic will be kicking off from August 6 to 9 at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio and for the first time since play was suspended, spectators are expected to be allowed on site, too.
Meanwhile, the Drive On Championship is a totally new event created to make up for some of the playing opportunities that were lost this year and will be played behind closed doors.
LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan said:
"We are adding a valuable additional playing opportunity for our LPGA Tour members. We are so appreciative of our longtime partners, Marathon and Dana, as well as the memberships at Highland Meadows and Inverness, for adjusting their schedules and helping us create a valuable two-week stretch in the Toledo area as we work to safely return to competition. This new event will allow us to test our COVID-19 protocols before we get to welcome back our fans at the Marathon LPGA Classic presented by Dana.”
2020 just keeps getting better.
