LPGA Commissioner Pleased With Growth In Asia; Wants To Keep Sunday Finish

CHANGE IN COURSE: In Rochester, Sal Maiorana reported the Wegmans LPGA Championship is "cutting ties after 37 years with Locust Hill Country Club, and Monroe Golf Club will host" the '14 tournament. Tournament Dir Linda Hampton said, "Our mission was to keep the major with the Wegmans name on it in 2014, and it worked out that we have a new site and a new date." LPGA officials determined that the "Donald Ross-designed layout -- despite having no water hazards -- was suitable for the tour’s premier championship." Monroe Golf Club President Steve McCluski said, "They toured the course in May and June, and they’re not going to require us to make any changes." Maiorana notes as far as "infrastructure, many decisions need to be made, and arrangements must be finalized with the Town of Pittsford, but it seems likely that all spectators will be shuttled to the course from satellite parking lots and dropped off in the main club parking lot adjacent to the 10th fairway where it is expected the LPGA merchandise tent will reside" (ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT & CHRONICLE, 6/28).
