LPGA Returning to Hawaii


HONOLULU -- The LPGA Tour is returning to Hawaii in 2005.

A $1 million tournament will be played in late February at the Turtle Bay Resort's Arnold Palmer Course on Oahu's North Shore, officials said Thursday.

The event will be sponsored by South Korean television network Seoul Broadcasting System, which will provide coverage throughout Asia. The last LPGA Tour event in Hawaii was the 2002 Takefuji Classic.
