See who will become the newest members of the LPGA Tour, when the Duramed FUTURES Tour unveils its top ten money winners for this season. Ten talented young ladies will realize their dream of playing on the LPGA Tour when they are awarded their membership cards at the ILOVENY Championship on September 6, 2009 in Albany, N.Y
The "Race for the Cards" began four weeks ago, at the ING New England Golf Classic. The program focuses attention on those Tour members who are currently ranked in the Top 10 on the 2009 Duramed FUTURES Tour season money list. Players are easily recognized by the "Race for the Card" logo appearing next to their name on the Real-Time Scoring, by their caddies wearing bright yellow "Race for the Card" caddie bibs, or by the signature yellow flags affixed to the carts following their groups.
Watch duramedfuturestour.com, beginning Friday, September 4 for video updates from Capital Hills at Albany. All weekend long you will be able to watch interviews with players in contention, listen to podcasts from the tournament, and receive live updates via the Tour's Twitter page. Fans around the world will then watch as ten players will be awarded their LPGA cards on Sunday, September 6 at approximately 5 p.m. EDT. The entire ceremony will be shown live via the website - only at duramedfuturestour.com.
