@jasonsobelGC The new LPGA schedule is borderline genius. Back from the dead. Michael Whan gets more done each year than a country full of politicians.

@RyanBallengeeGC: The LPGA tacked on another event (to get to 27) on top of the schedule shared w/me. Kudos to Mike Whan. Clubhouse lead for golf exec of '12. Every LPGA player I follow remarked on Kingsmill tonight. Very clear message about getting it back on the schedule.
@RandallMellGC: The new Kingsmill Championship is the big surprise, a return to a popular stop that folded its show three yrs ago.
@Golfweek_Baldry: LPGA schedule for 2012 features 27 events, up 4 from '11. Good step in the right director for Mike Whan and team. Kingsmill back in the lineup Sept. 6-9. The Williamsburg, Va., stop was a favorite among players. Total # of domestic events is now 15. Total prize money for the year increased from $40.4 to $47 million. Whan hopes to add one more event for the fall. Mike Whan said there's still work to be done: “When you see us taking two weeks off, that’s a heart-burning problem for me." And here's some great news for fans: All North American events will be broadcast LIVE over the weekend. Total of 27 events for 2012, 15 of which are domestic.
