Wegmans agrees to 2-year deal to sponsor LPGA Championship


Wegmans will step into the title sponsorship role as part of a new two-year agreement to continue to host the LPGA Championship at Locust Hill Country Club outside Rochester, N.Y., Wegmans and the LPGA announced today.

Wegmans stepped into the host role as presenting sponsor this year in what was originally planned to be a temporary arrangement with the LPGA searching for a new title sponsor for its major championship after its agreement with McDonald’s ended in 2009.

The 2011 Wegmans LPGA Championship will be held during the week of June 23-26 next year. It will feature a $2.5 million purse.
