The LPGA Tour announced that this year will be the last for the Corning Classic, a tourney which has had the same sponsor since 1979. They were unable to find new sponsors.
LPGA Corning Classic Jack Benjamin:
“This is a most difficult decision for all of us. Everyone involved with the event is passionate about it and about the LPGA players who have been a part of it for more than three decades.
But the realities are that the revenue opportunities in the marketplace will not support the components needed to successfully host a major event like this in our community moving forward.”
