LPGA Concludes Stay In Rochester, But Some Already Eyeing Ways For Golf To Return
Published August 18, 2014
CAPITULATION TO CAPITALIZATION? In Buffalo, Bucky Gleason writes women’s golf "could return" to Rochester, and perhaps it "will even play host to the LPGA Championship, which no longer is anchored after five years in Pittsford." Monroe Golf Club "remains one of the great venues." Attendance "has been strong for years, and they came out under ideal playing conditions Sunday." Rochester losing its place on the LPGA tour "is yet another example of large corporations swallowing up mom-and-pop operations" (BUFFALO NEWS, 8/18). GOLF.com's Mike Walker wrote, "It's sad that the LPGA is leaving Rochester after 38 years, but renaming this event the Women's PGA Championship and moving it around the country will help make this championship feel like a bigger event" (GOLF.com, 8/17).
