Background information about the LPGA
The Ladies Professional Golf Association was founded back in 1950 (making it 18 years older than the men's PGA) and runs almost every aspect of the professional ladies' game from its HQ in Daytona Beach, Florida. The most important part of its operations are the weekly tournaments that it runs from January to November, which feature the finest players in the world of women's golf.
This means that every year the LPGA runs around 33 tournaments, where the prize money exceeds $60 million - so the professionals are playing for big stakes even in the less famous competitions. The location of LPGA tournaments varies. The majority are held in the USA (still the world's biggest market for women's golf), but expect events in Australia, the UK, France, China, Korea, Japan, the Bahamas and elsewhere. A quick look at the entry list to an average LPGA event will demonstrate how international the game has become, and the schedule is coming to reflect that.
Along with the regular season, the LPGA also organises five "majors": the Evian Championship, the U.S. Women's Open, the Ricoh British Women's Open, ANA Inspiration and the Women's PGA Championship. If you want to see Ariya Jutanugarn, Lydia Ko and Lexi Thompson in action, those are the tournaments to book.
Highlights in LPGA History
Anyone who books LPGA tickets will be watching a very high level of golf, and could well be in for some rollercoaster rides. LPGA history is littered with thrilling finishes and memorable performances.
Just picking a few standouts, you could see commanding victories from players at the peak of their game, like Cristie Kerr's 12 shot victory in the Women's PGA Championship in 2010 or Jiyai Shin's 9 stroke win at the 2012 Women's British Open.
But you are just as likely to watch tournaments go down to the wire. For instance, Hilary Lunke won the 2003 U.S. Women's Open in a three way playoff against Kelly Robbins and Angela Stanford, while Patty Sheehan and Juli Inkster fought it out in 1992 over an entire day before being separated by just two shots.
