DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 15, 2023 – The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) announced today a change in cut sizes for LPGA Tour events. The cut number for Official LPGA Tournaments with a 36-hole cut will now be the top-65 players and ties. This policy change, which was made in close consultation by the LPGA Player Directors, will first take effect at the LPGA Drive On Championship at Superstition Mountain from March 23-26, the first full-field, 72-hole event with a cut on the 2023 LPGA Tour schedule.
“This new regulation, now more consistent with other professional golf organizations, will assist in ensuring a manageable field size after 36 holes of competition,” said Tommy Tangtiphaiboontana, senior vice president of Tour operations. “The change will provide increased chances of playing off a single tee on the weekend and help establish a faster pace of play in an effort to strengthen the competitor experience at LPGA Tournaments.”
