LPGA Championship moving to Monroe Golf Club in 2014

Wegmans-LPGA-Championship

The Wegmans LPGA Championship will have a new home in 2014, just four miles from where it was played this year.

Monroe Golf Club in Pittsford, N.Y., will take over hosting the LPGA-owned major championship from Locust Hill Country Club, which has held the tournament for the last four years. Monroe G.C. was rumored to be taking over as host during the week of the championship.

The date of the tournament will move in 2014 as well, being played August 14-17. It's a move from its traditional June date in an effort to spread out the Tour's five majors better.

With the 2014 U.S. Women's Open being played June 19-22, right after the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina, the traditional date would put a pair of majors on the schedule in a three-week span. It's a problem the LPGA Tour will avoid by moving the date.

The 2014 season will mark the first time that Locust Hill will not host an LPGA Tour event since 1977.
