|Future Of LPGA Corning Classic
Up In The Air After 2010
OPTIMISTIC ABOUT FUTURE: In New York, Bob Benz reports Tournament President Jack Benjamin is "optimistic Corning will remain part of the LPGA Tour for the foreseeable future." Benjamin: “We have a contract [with the LPGA] through 2009. Then we have an option year for 2010 -- that’s our option. What we’ll do is after 2009, we will begin negotiating a new contract with the LPGA for 2011, ’12 and ’13 and our expectation is it will take a while to do that, so we’ve got the option year to do it and then our plan is to keep right on going, just as we have in the past” (CORNING LEADER, 5/21).
