·1 min read

The LPGA’s fall Asian swing has dwindled down to one event. The LPGA has announced that due to continuing health concerns and significant travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 TOTO Japan Classic has been removed from the tour’s schedule. The event was slated to take place Nov. 4-7 at the Seta Golf Course.

While the week will remain open on the LPGA schedule, the tour noted in a release that organizers of the TOTO event have provided financial support for a future LPGA competition opportunity.

Only four events remain on the LPGA schedule, including this week’s Cognizant Founders Cup in West Caldwell, New Jersey. The BMW Ladies Championship in South Korea is the only event that’s left in Asia this fall. Events were originally planned for China, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea.

The season will conclude with back-to-back events in Florida starting with the Pelican Women’s Championship in Belleair, followed by the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples.
