Match play returning to LPGA in 2010


The LPGA announced Tuesday the debut of the Sybase Match Play Championship. The tournament will be held at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Galdstone, N.J., May 20-23.

Sixty-four of the top players from around the world will compete for a $1.5 million purse, with the winner earning $375,000.

Hamilton Farm was the site of the 2005 and 2006 HSBC Women's World Match Play event. This will be the first official match-play tournament contested since its demise after the 2007 season.

Golf Channel will broadcast the event from the second round to the finish. It is now the 25th tournament on the 2010 LPGA schedule.
