Military Action Causes LPGA Cancellation


The Sports Today CJ Nine Bridges Classic, the LPGA tournament in South Korea Oct. 19-21, has been cancelled due to the coalition air strikes in Afghanistan.
'In light of the world situation and the escalation of military action, Sports Today and the LPGA both believe canceling the event is in the best interests of everyone involved,' senior executive director Chun Sang Don of Sports Today - the tournament's sponsor - stated in a press release.
'This was the most prudent action,' said LPGA commissioner Ty Votaw.
