A New LPGA Event in Florida

The first of two new LPGA events in Florida debuts today, the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio.

Boca Rio Golf Course

Gainbridge, the sponsor for this new event, is an annuity and life insurance agency. The Boca Rio course, a par-72 at just over 6700 yards long, is in Boca Raton FL. And as this is an inaugural event, there is no defending champion. The purse will be $2mil USD, with $300,000 going to the winner.

And the field should be pretty good. Six of the Top10 in the Rolex Rankings will be there -- Nelly Korda, Danielle Kang, Nasa Hataoka, Sei Young Kim, Brooke Henderson and Lexi Thompson -- and all but two from the last Solheim Cup teams will be there (Lizette Salas and, of course, Suzann Pettersen).

Inbee Park will also be there, continuing her campaign to make the Korean Olympic Team this summer. Inbee is currently #14 in the Rolex, up two spots from last week, and needs to be one of the Top4 Korean players in the Rolex Top15 by June 29th. (There are five Koreans ahead of her right now.)

The new event will be broadcast on GC today starting at 11:30am ET. And since this is the first full-field event of the 2020 LPGA season, we should see 108 very excited players!
