Thailand 1, Arizona, Florida and Texas (combined) 0

November 18, 2009

The LPGA, at least, has stopped the bleeding, with the return of the ShopRite LPGA Classic, but there remain gaping holes in its 2010 schedule, as Ron Sirak of Golf World notes here.

What is especially startling is that Thailand (among other countries) has more LPGA events than Arizona, Florida and Texas combined. The score: One for Thailand (the Honda PTT LPGA Championship), zero for Arizona, Florida and Texas, each a golf hotbed.
