LPGA Shanghai nixed over COVID-19 curbs

The LPGA Shanghai tournament has been cancelled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions in China, the elite women’s professional golf circuit said yesterday.

The event, which was scheduled for October 14-17 at the Qizhong Garden Golf Club, did not take place last year because of health concerns and travel restrictions amid the pandemic. American Danielle Kang won the inaugural Shanghai tournament in 2018 and successfully defended her title the following year with a one-stroke victory over compatriot Jessica Korda. The LPGA tournament in Taipei planned for October 28-31 was also cancelled in July for a second straight year due to similar restrictions. The two remaining events in the LPGA’s four-stop Asia swing are scheduled for October 21-24 in Busan, South Korea, and November 4-7 in Otsu, Japan.
