Good News, Bad News: LPGA Adds Event For 2013, Still Finalizing Their 2013 Schedule

Steve DiMeglio reports on the LPGA adding a second event to the 2013 schedule, which unfortunately has not been finalized as we...are ten days into 2013.

The positive news only: a 144 player field in May with a $1.3 million purse.

The North Texas LPGA Shootout will also provide a unique opportunity for amateur players in the area to earn spots in the field through qualifying. Tournament exemptions will be awarded to the winners of a high school and collegiate "shootout" played in advance of the event. Tournament proceeds will benefit The Nexus Club which primarily supports and raises funds for the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf in North Texas.

"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to play in my home state again," said Angela Stanford, a four-time member of the U.S. Solheim Cup Team and native of Saginaw, Texas. "North Texas is a community with a passionate golf fan base and I know they will love having the Tour in town."

OK, I'll go first late in the day. Good news for the LPGAT. Imagine the PGAT in 10 years in the same boat.

You really think it's going to take 10 years? I say closer to five.

Do tell, what will cause the Tour to go kaput in five years? Do you really believe it?
If the Tour can survive since 2008 when all their financial company sponsors without rolling back purses, then it is hard to see dark clouds on the horizon.
Do tell.
