The event will be played on the course that hosted the Mitchell Co. Tournament of Champions since 1999. From Golf Week-
The LPGA announced Thursday the creation of the Bell Micro LPGA Classic, to be played Sept. 8-14 on the Crossings Course at Magnolia Plantation on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Mobile, Ala. The full-field event is also scheduled to be played in 2009 and 2010.
â€œMobile has hosted the Mitchell Company LPGA Tournament of Champions on Mobileâ€™s Magnolia Grove courses for the past eight years,â€ said Mobile mayor Samuel Jones. â€œWe look forward to adding the new tournament in Mobile and are confident it also will be a tremendous success.â€
The TOC is discontinued whereas the new event is a full field. It also comes in a the second of three southern based LPGA stops. The scheduling and new format look sensible to me.
