TOM ABBOTT IS SOMEONE I CAN'T STAND TO LISTEN TO. HIS ENGLISH BLAB IS MORE THAN I CAN HANDLE! ARE THERE NOT ANY AMERICANS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR HIS JOB??
THE LPGA FEELS IT NEEDS TO GO INTERNATIONAL BECAUSE OF ALL THE ASIANS PLAYING AND ALL THE ASIANS MONEY (SPONSERS) THAT IS OUT THERE. NOT ONLY IS IT BAD FOR AMERICAN FANS BUT HARD ON THE LADIES TRAVELING......ALL OF THE FOREIGN PLAYERS ARE MOVING HERE SO THEY HAVE TO TRAVEL HALF WAY AROUND THE WORLD TO PLAY ALSO.
I DON'T LIKE WHAT THE LPGA HAS BECOME AND WHERE IT'S GOING!!

Well, the future of the LPGA is an international tour. Look at it this way--All of the top players play each other every tournament whereas on the PGA tour the top players play either the PGA or the ERUO tour. They only meet at the majors. Just like tennis. When Bivens was the head of the LPGA a few years ago she just ran the LPGA into the ground. She told sponsors it was her way or the hiway. A lot of sponsors took the hiway. And, she signed a 10 year contract with the golf channel!!!! Hell, half of the tournaments televised were tape delays, including the U S tournaments. The LPGA lost exposure in the U S over night. If it wasn't for the foreign sponsors, here in the U S and overseas, the LPGA would only have around half of the tournaments they have now.
And, why are you yelling?????
