Some great news for the LPGA-
Toledo Classic, Inc., which operates the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic, has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday afternoon at which time an extension of its agreement with the LPGA Tour is expected to be announced.
A source familiar with the negotiations indicated it will be a one-year contract that will assure the tournament will be staged in 2010. No details on playing dates or purse were made available.
Next up- Will Michelob be saved? Is it possible the Corning Classic* isn’t dead yet? A change of commissioner has brought the LPGA some good news.
If the Jamie Farr is around another ten years, I expect Se Ri Pak to get her record breaking 6th win there. As Farr said once, Se Ri owns Toledo. She won there in 98,99, 01, 03, 07, and finished one shot out of the lead in 2000 and 2004. She may be leaping in joy again like she did after her record breaking** 1999 Farr victory.
*- There are two LPGA Tournaments with ‘Corning Classic’ in their title. The Toledo tournament and another that was played in Corning New York every year for over 30 years and believed to have played its last edition this year.
**- The 1999 Farr saw the biggest playoff in LPGA history. Six golfers in all took part in sudden death. Pak won it with a birdie on the first hole of sudden death.
