Women's world golf tour?

Hi Sophie,

Welcome to mylpga.com.

What do you think of the concept of a world golf tour for women? Annika seems to think it might be a good idea when she mentioned the concept during an interview in 2006.

Thanks

How has the women's European tour changed since your first appearance in 1993?
I'm sad to say that it hasn't changed much. They've got pretty much the same number of tournaments, although some of the purses have improved. But the best players still leave to play in the States. We certainly have the players in Europe - we have won the Solheim Cup [the ladies' equivalent of the Ryder Cup competition between Europe and the United States] twice out of the last four, after all. Perhaps it would be best if we had a world tour. That is a concept that all the tours should work on together.

Thank you.

I think Annika is quite right, the concept of World Tour is probably the futur.
Right now the Ladies European tour has about 30 events compared to 5 years ago where we only had 15!!! lots of changes during these period and probably this is just the beginning of a really big increase of European golf.
