The LPGA Tour announced that its restart date will be pushed back one week due to the coronavirus pandemic.
That means that the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational will not be held in 2020, but will return in 2021.
“As I’ve said since this pandemic started, while we will do all we can to play safely in 2020, the most important thing is to ensure the long-term health of our Tour. We are very thankful to the team at Dow for their ongoing and extended support. The 2019 Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational was an incredible addition to our schedule, and I’m excited to see what they bring to the table in 2021,” said LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan.
Dow has extended its contract with the LPGA for many years to come.
“While we are disappointed that the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational will not be held this year, I am excited that our friends at Dow have extended our relationship and will be hosting us in Midland for many years,” said Whan.
The Tour adds that further schedule adjustments will be made if necessary.
