Just as I reported a couple weeks ago, the Evian Masters will become a Major in 2013 according to a tweet by Beth Ann Baldry of GolfWeek Magazine. Is five Majors in the future of the LPGA? Maybe not. I understand that the Kraft/Nabisco Championship – the first Major of the season – is in the final year of their contract. Will it go the way of the dodo to make room for Evian? Then again, it may be a take-it-or-leave-it proposition from Evian. They wanted to be a major for some time and upping the purse certainly supports their position.
Next year, Evian and the British Open will not be played back-to-back due to the Olympics held in London but that will probably be a permanent arrangement now.
BTW, Q-School is considered the fifth Major among us LPGA aficionados so it’s just another reason to drop Kraft.
Exclusive: Evian will be LPGA’s 5th major in ’13 – Exclusive? …the LPGA could possibly designate a major in Asia, too. WTF!
Then there was this:
Beach horror after holidaymaker has eye pecked out by seabird he was trying to save – ‘My eye was hanging out and I had to put it back in on the beach. …’ – Just wondering, at what point did he think it might be a good idea to let go?
