LPGA Releases 2011 Schedule; Sets Up Tournament to Benefit Girls Golf Program

The 2011 Tour Schedule has been released. It features 25 events, with a tournament where player do not get paid, but gain all the other benefits, such as points for POY, ROY, Rolex, etc. The purse, instead will be donated to LPGA/USGA Girls Golf. When I first heard there was a tournament where players would not get paid, I was skeptical even if the money was going to charity. But after listening to Michael Whan describe the mission of the tournament, to help the next generation of players, I am definitely a supporter.
