“Clearly, the LPGA could benefit from both the big pockets of the PGA Tour and from the ways in which it could structure added-value title sponsorship deals. Some men’s tour sponsors could take on LPGA events for a little more money, and the fact the PGA Tour would use its various promotional platforms to market the LPGA would help get the message out about how much talent there is in women’s golf.”

My thoughts: Annika Sorenstam was on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive this morning, and she seemed pretty open to the idea when asked about it. I’m not going to say that I was totally taken aback by her opinion on the matter, but I will say that it’s pretty telling of the state of women’s golf for this to be looked at as a serious option. And it could certainly work out to the LPGA Tour’s advantage, IF it’s properly managed.
This will certainly get more ink in the coming weeks and months, me thinks….
