The LPGA officially announced today the addition of three new tournaments that will be added to the 2018 schedule.
- The Hugel-JTBC Championship will be in Los Angeles, but the course hasn’t been announced yet. The tournament will be held April 19-22 and will have a purse of $1,500,000.
- The following week, on April 26-29, the Tour heads north to the Bay Area and a return to Lake Merced Golf Club for a new event sponsored by Korean skincare company L&P Cosmetic. Lake Merced, located just outside San Francisco, hosted the Swinging Skirts LPGA Championship in 2014-16, but that sponsorship moved to the Tour’s event in Taipei in 2017. The official tournament name will be announced in early 2018.
- Additionally, a new event to be held in Shanghai, the LPGA’s only tournament on the mainland of China, will join the calendar on Oct. 18-21 as part of the LPGA’s Fall Asian Swing. Further details about this new tournament, including the title and course, will be announced in 2018.
