LPGA Adds New Event in Korea


The Ladies Professional Golf Association has announced the addition of the Sports Today Open which will be held in Seoul, Korea, Oct. 19-21.
The event, which will be played the first time in 2001, is the first LPGA-sanctioned event in Korea since the Samsung World Championship moved to the U.S. in 1998.
The inaugural event will carry a $1.5 million purse. The field will comprise the top 60 players from the official LPGA money list, and the remainder will be top-ranking players from the Korean LPGA.
