LPGA to return to Alabama

The SportsXchange

The LPGA Tour will return to the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Capitol Hill in Prattville, Ala. in the fall of 2014.

The Senator Course at Capitol Hill will host the Alabama LPGA Classic. The sport's governing body also announced the renewal of the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic, which will also be presented by the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

The Alabama LPGA Classic will be the tour's seventh visit to Prattville. The Navistar LPGA Classic had been held in Prattville from 2007-12, until Navistar pulled it sponsorship.

"We're thrilled to return to Prattville for the newly named Alabama LPGA Classic," LPGA Tour Commissioner Michael Whan said in a statement. "It's no secret that Alabama has some of the best golf in America. In 2014, the best female players in the world will 'Play the Trail' and we couldn't be more excited!"
