LPGA event to move from Rich Harvest Farms

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) The International Crown still plans to be in Chicago next year, just not at Rich Harvest Farms.

The LPGA Tour and Rich Harvest Farms announced Wednesday that they have agreed to relocate the biennial event that features match play among eight countries.

Plans are for the International Crown to be played July 21-24, and the LPGA Tour says it is committed to keeping the tournament in the Chicago area.

It is scheduled for South Korea in 2018.

The LPGA says it is trying to complete a deal for a new site for the 2016 matches.

No reason was given for why Rich Harvest Farms will not host the International Crown. The course hosted the 2009 Solheim Cup, and the LPGA Tour statement says another tournament could return there in the future.
