Getting a corporate sponsor like Procter & Gamble is always a wonderful thing - but the move from early September to early July is a big surprise. This opens up a two-week gap between the Safeway Classic and the new Bell Micro event (with the Bell Micro becoming the only event in a four-week span leading up to Navistar). It also creates a stretch of seven consecutive tournaments immediately after an eleven-week stretch, making 18 events in 19 weeks from the end of March to the beginning of August. By doing this, they're just begging for the top players to bail on 3-4 of those 18 just to get some rest.
Something tells me the shuffling will continue.
Nitpicking Dept: Somebody forgot that last year's Arkansas event didn't really happen in the LPGA record book and the 2008 tournament will officially be the inaugural event. I quote from the link above - "The stars of the LPGA Tour will once again be competing in a 54-hole format at prestigious Pinnacle Country Club." Later in the article, Der Kommissar herself makes a similar mis-statement.
