Chinese LPGA Tour event will not be played this year

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) The Reignwood Pine Valley LPGA Classic will not be played this year, leaving China with one tour event this season.

The LPGA Tour said Thursday that the decision to call off the Beijing event scheduled for Oct. 1-4 doesn't impact the long-term future of the tournament. The tour said an extension is now being finalized to play the event in 2016 and 2017.

The Blue Bay LPGA in Hainan on Oct. 29-Nov. 1 will be the tour's lone Chinese event this year.
