2014 LPGA Tour: Season to begin with Pure Silk Bahamas Classic

The 2014 LPGA Tour season will begin in North America for the first time in 13 years on Jan. 23 with the second Pure Silk Bahamas Classic.

The inaugural tournament was played in May, at a time when the islands were being pelted with torrential rains. The rainfall flooded the Atlantis host course, forcing the LPGA Tour to play a unique 36-hole tournament comprised of three 12-hole rounds. Ilhee Lee won the tournament.

The move to January should afford the LPGA a much more dry golf course and a friendlier weather forecast for a 72-hole event.

The LPGA Tour will then begin its traditional early Asian swing in February.
