COULD LPGA NAME ITS FIRST WOMAN COMMISSIONER?
Published January 12, 1995
Retiring LPGA Commissioner Charlie Mechem, at the eve of the LPGA's first '95 event: "I don't think there is any question that someday there will be a woman commissioner. But I don't get any sense that this time it must be a woman." An 11 person search committee, including eight players, has been formed to find a new commissioner (Steve Hershey, USA TODAY, 1/12). According to the LPGA, the '95 season will be "its most successful season ever." The schedule includes 38 events totaling over $24M in prize money. In addition, 26 tournaments will enjoy TV coverage -- that's the most televised events ever for the LPGA in one season. The added TV coverage includes a few events that will appear on The Golf Channel (LPGA).
