After a 2020 season for the history books, complete with hundreds of COVID-19 tests and social-distancing protocols, the LPGA Tour returns to play this week with the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions at the Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando in Florida on Thursday.
As the LPGA enters its 71st season, 25 LPGA Tour winners from the past three years will battle it out on the course for the $1.2 million purse over 72 holes with no cut.
As the 25-player field swiftly dives back into tournament play, the universal emphasis seems to be on enjoying the competition and setting their sights on the highly anticipated, stacked schedule that starts in the spring. A large part of this week's emphasis on reflection and merriment can be credited to the Diamond Resorts Tournament setup.
Playing alongside the pros, similar to years past at the Diamond Resorts Tournament, 53 celebrities and amateurs from the sports and entertainment worlds will compete for a $500,000 purse of their own using a modified Stableford format. Full article at ESPN
