2011 Worldwide Women's Professional Golf Schedule: LPGA, JLPGA, LET

Now that the LPGA schedule has been officially released, here's what I know about the worldwide women's professional golf calendar in 2011 for the LPGA, JLPGA, and LET. For now, I'm keeping the KLPGA's 2010 information as is from last year's post, even though all I really know so far are the results of their 1st 2011 tournament, which like the men's European Tour's took place in 2010. I'll post an updated version of this list when I find out what exactly the KLPGA's and CLPGA's 2011 schedules look like.

Note: A [D] following a player's name indicates that she is the defending champion of an event that has not yet been played.

Hey Mate - you may wanna add the Ladies Asian Tour which starts up this week for a three week stretch in Taiwan for your worldwide Schedule..

Sakura Yokomine is playing this week and Ya-ni Tseng is playing the following two weeks.

Thanks, man, I've always considered them a minor league tour, akin to the LPGA's Futures Tour and the JLPGA's Step-Up Tour, but that may be unfair. If I add them in, I'd have to add the ALPG, as well, eh?
