DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The LPGA Tour returns to Mexico for the first time in 30 years with the MasterCard Classic to be played the first weekend in March at Bosque Real Country Club in Mexico City.
The 54-hole tournament will feature 132 players, at least four born in Mexico, competing for $1.2 million
The move to Mexico comes at a time when Lorena Ochoa has emerged as one of the top young stars in women's golf. The native of Guadalajara was the rookie of the year in 2003 and is third on the LPGA money list this season with $1.2 million.
The last LPGA event in Mexico was the Bing Crosby International Classic, played in 1974 and 1975 at San Isidro Country Club in Guadalajara.
