The LPGA Tour will have a different look to open the 2019 season.
Diamond Resorts and the LPGA Tour announced on Wednesday that the season will kick off on Jan. 17, 2019 with a Tournament of Champions at Tranquilo Golf Club at Four Seasons Resort Orlando in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The tournament is going to replace the Diamond Resorts Invitational, which featured a host of LPGA stars over the years.
The event will feature winners from the last two seasons of the LPGA Tour, sponsor exemptions, 45 celebrity participants and 10 amateurs. The Tour players will vie for a $1.2 million purse over 72 holes of stroke play.
The celebrities and amateurs will use a Modified Stableford format. Past participants of the Diamond Resorts Invitational include Lexi Thompson and Brittany Lincicome among others.
