PGA Tour, LPGA Resume Talk Of Forming Cooperative Partnership
Published March 17, 2011
HELPING EACH OTHER OUT: Former LPGA member Annika Sorenstam said of the potential partnership between the tours, “It's something that's been swirling around for really the last 10 years. Just thinking, 'Hey, how can the LPGA get to the next level? What does the Tour need to grow and to get bigger purses, et cetera?' I don't think it's anything new." Sorenstam added, "I wouldn't be totally against it. I think that we can really help each other in a lot of ways, especially now with the economy." She said she "would love see some tournaments" that feature men's and women's fields. Sorenstam: “Not against each other, but kind of like tennis where they have the same venue. You can make it a smaller field and I think there's so much you can do to just kind of change it up a little bit" ("Morning Drive," Golf Channel, 3/17).
