DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 17, 2020) – Tournament officials announced today that the 2020 Senior LPGA Championship, which was scheduled to take place July 30-Aug. 1 at French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana, will be cancelled. The fourth playing of the senior major championship will be moved to 2021, with the dates to be announced at a later time.
“Cancelling ANY golf event is a difficult and painful decision. We are extremely thankful for the support and flexibility from French Lick Resort and the Legends Tour during this trying time!” said LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan. “Importantly, all of us are committed to this important senior women’s tradition, and we cannot wait to watch the women legends of the game tee it up once again in 2021.”
“These legendary players deserve nothing less than a first-class Championship, and with the current circumstances, our first and foremost concern is for the safety and well-being of the players, the sponsors, the spectators and our staff,” said Dave Harner, Director of Golf Operations at French Lick Resort. “It has become more and more evident that we would not be able to conduct the event to its usual and deserved standard, therefore, we feel cancelling is the best decision. We look forward to 2021 with an even bigger and better fourth Senior LPGA Championship!”
“During these unprecedented times for all, we understand the challenges associated with planning and hosting the Senior LPGA Championship this Summer,” said Legends Tour CEO Jane Geddes. “That said, we look forward to returning to French Lick in 2021 and appreciate the ongoing support we have received from Steve Ferguson, Dave Harner and all at French Lick Resort.”
